The solutions with data encryption technology are available for purchase, providing organizations with added confidence that their data is protected against unauthorized system access, even when drives are redeployed or removed from the data center entirely.

The E-Series encryption secures data at rest by utilizing embedded key management and self-encrypting drives with AES 256 encryption. Since the E-Series uses hardware encryption, there is no loss in system performance. Also, with the E-Series management interface, the encryption is transparent to the user and the encryption keys are managed by the system.

Organizations can repurpose or retire storage without compromising data protection. Data at rest encryption prevents access to user data in the event that a drive is removed from the system, such as with the retirement of drives, drive relocation, drive repurposing or drive replacement. If drives are to be reused or relocated, sensitive data can be made unreadable in the time it takes to delete the key; after the key is deleted, the drive is immediately made unreadable without the need for long multi-pass overwrite processes.

"Imation is focused on the comprehensive protection of high-value data throughout its entire lifecycle, no matter where it resides," said Mike Stolz, VP, marketing and technical support, Nexsan solutions, Imation. "Adding data encryption technology to our E-Series family of storage solutions is just the latest step we've taken to help organizations mitigate emerging risks in IT and ensure the safety and security of their most valuable data."

The Nexsan E-Series solutions can be directly attached or networked to workstations and servers. In addition to delivering storage density and efficiency, organizations can take advantage of E-Series data at rest encryption to add another security measure to a comprehensive data privacy and security strategy. All E-Series systems take the extra step to reduce power and cooling requirements through their multi-level, power-reducing AutoMAID capabilities. They include an management interface that simplifies deployment and management for the resource-constrained IT administrator.

The ESeries family is one part of company's Nexsan portfolio of purpose-built storage solutions, enabling users to deploy the right storage products for the right application.
