Abstract: 

Self-Encrypting Drives (SEDs) have found applications in enterprise storage where crypto-erase allows rapid sanitization of retired drives but their use in client storage devices is still minimal. Learn about the history and uses for SEDs and what needs to happen to bring them into broader use based upon results from a recent poll of client end users.

Learning Objectives

What are SEDs used for?
What does a recent survey show are factors in client SED success?
What is needed to make SEDs widespread?
