Information security by Data Encryption

Following legislation, including personal information protection laws, America's Sarbanes Oxley act and Japan's Financial Instruments and Exchange Law, the security of enterprise information has gained greater significance. Good corporate social responsibility requires that access to stored data is restricted to authorized users and any unauthorized or accidental access to sensitive information is blocked.

ETERNUS disk storage systems use high levels of encryption to prevent unauthorized data access. This includes firmware encryption (by LUN) as standard, world-standard 128bit AES (*Note 1) technology, plus the support of Fujitsu's unique encryption with high-process performance.

ETERNUS also supports Self Encrypting Drives (SED). Here the disk drive uses hardware encryption instead of firmware. This enables data encryption without performance loss as no load is placed on the system by firmware operation.

*Note 1: AES: Advanced Encryption Standard

Required authentication keys are provided for the key management group in which SED are registered. Authentication keys generated and stored by a key management server are provided for a required device as necessary.
Secure uniform management can achieve authentication key management and reduce risk of important data leakage.
The auto generation/rotation functions of authentication keys and backup function of those key information achieve authentication key lifecycle management and reduce operations management costs.
(Note: Key management server requires ETERNUS SF KM.)
