Hardware block for IO Encryption

Recommended Posts

Hello, Im looking for discrete hardware block solution, which will encrypt and decrypt input and output data, so all storages will be secured. Do you have any advice? Best Regards, John!

I can't say I've seen anything like that. Most of the current offerings are a H/W encryption built-in and you enable that with a passcode.

We have a solution for you.

We are Scale-Out storage maker and have NAS solution called Securage.

Securage is Scale-Out NAS with DRM and DLP embedded.

Files written to Storage are encrypted and decrypted when opened/READ properly.

For example, if you create/copy/save MS-Word file, it is encrypted (on the fly) and saved.

When the file is opened using MS-Word, it is opened as usual.   Of course, the file can use saved or SaveAs to Securage.  However, you can not saveAs to any other drive.

However, if the file is copied to C/USB drive or attached to gmail or outlook, the file is NOT decrypted.

We support MS-Windows and Linux.

If you are interested, lease me an email at kenny@pspace.com

You have three options.

1.  Buy a SAN that has an encryption option.  All of them do this these days.

2.  There used to be a market for SAN encryption gateways for an existing SAN that didn't support native encryption.  This is a dead market IMO.

3.  Host based encryption, software running on an OS that encrypts the data.  This can cause a lot of issues with AV/backup software.  Ill-advised unless you have to.
