Self-Encrypting Disk Drives to Move into Data Centers
Seagate, IBM, and LSI have been working to make changes in how data is protected in enterprise Data Centers. Today Seagate announced it is making available the world’s first self-encrypting hard drive for data centers. PodTech spoke with key executives at Seagate, IBM, and LSI about this new technology shift, how it works and why enterprise data center managers should know more about the next phase in enterprise security.
