Do you need to deal with data privacy challenges? Are you worried about meeting compliance regulations? HP Secure Encryption helps you accomplish this with data encryption keys to secure your sensitive data at rest. HP Secure Encryption is available for both local and remote deployments. Local Key Management mode provides a single server deployment. Remote Key Management mode allows for central management for enterprise-wide deployment. Both Local Key Management mode and Remote Key Management mode requires the HP Smart Storage Administrator (SSA) version or later, Smart Array Px3x controllers or later, and Smart Array firmware version 1.50 or later. For Remote Key Management mode, the HP Enterprise Secure Key Manager (ESKM) 3.1 or later manages all the keys and will help you scale to over 25,000 servers and millions of keys.


Broad Encryption Coverage

HP Secure Encryption encrypts the data on both the attached bulk storage and cache module of the HP Smart Array Px3x controller. It supports any hard disk drive or Solid State Drive in the Smart Drive portfolio for HP ProLiant Gen8 Servers (or later) or supported storage enclosures.

High Availability and Scalability

HP Secure Encryption easily scales with your business from single server deployment to enterprise-wide deployment of over 25,000 servers via the HP Enterprise Secure Key Manager (ESKM) 3.1 or later. ESKM manages all the keys centrally and when deployed in a clustered configuration, it maximizes uptime.

Simplified Deployment and Management

The HP Smart Storage Administrator configures the cryptographic features of HP Secure Encryption associated with the HP Smart Array Px3x or later controllers. Although an activation key is not required to enable the features, a license is required per encrypted drive.

The ESKM manages all the keys across all HP Secure Encryption deployments.

Support compliance requirements like HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley

HP Secure Encryption helps enterprises comply with data privacy requirements associated with HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley Acts.

HP ESKM version 3.1 has achieved FIPS 140-2 Level-2 validation.
