Intel® RAID Drive Encryption Management

Reduce risk of data being compromised when drives leave the server

Premium Upgrade Feature to increase data protection

Premium Upgrade Feature to Increase Data Protection

A company's data may be its most valuable asset, and if misplaced or stolen, organizations run the risk of lost revenue, legal and compliance implications, and a tarnished reputation. Since data spends most of its life at rest on drives within the data center, as these drives leave for repair, retirement, relocation, or maintenance, data is vulnerable to being lost or stolen.

The emergence of self-encrypting drives (SEDs) mitigates the security vulnerabilities of data-at-rest. Intel® RAID Drive Encryption Management, a Premium Feature from Intel, when paired up with SEDs, provides you with the data encryption and services you need for hard disk drives. SEDs help protect your data, reduce your costs, and minimize the impact and liability of theft. And this is all done with transparency to your end users.

Key Benefits:

  • Locks drives and secures data the moment a drive is removed from a system
  • Helps secure a drive’s data from unauthorized access or modification
  • Instantly and securely renders data on SED drives unreadable
  • Significantly reduces cost and time of repurposing and retiring drives
