Volume Security

The Hitachi storage systems provide the following features that enable you to protect sensitive data from unauthorized access, meet stringent data privacy requirements, and adhere to strict regulatory compliance policies:

  • Data-at-rest encryption: The Encryption License Key feature provides hardware-based Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption, enabling you to implement and manage data-at-rest encryption for sensitive data on your storage system.
  • Data retention: The Data Retention Utility feature enables you to protect your data volumes from read and/or write operations and define the data retention term for the protected volumes.
  • Volume shredding: The Volume Shredder feature enables you to shred data once the prescribed retention period ends. The shredding function erases the data by overwriting the data with dummy data to prevent the deleted data from being restored.
