Abstract: 

Security has always been a critical aspect of IT storage. However, the proliferation of networking technologies and protocols, combined with the emergence of Cloud Storage has made security more important and difficult than ever. In this presentation, we will examine some of the technologies and standards that are available to solve these issues, and show how companies can utilize these technologies to design an architecture that is scalable, and secure. You will learn how to establish security practices that accommodate multiple networking technologies including FCoE, IB, iSCSI and FC networks. Securing data in both public and private Clouds is also covered, with an examination of the issues around securing Cloud and other storage services. This session will focus on the data-center requirements for implementing a successful encryption strategy that secures data both in-flight and at-rest. Issues such as when and where to encrypt data, products to use and the all-important key-management question are all addressed.

Attendees will gain an understanding of products and technologies delivering storage security and key-management
Gain an understanding of how Storage as a Service, Cloud Storage and emerging networking technologies will impact storage security
