File Server Encryption

A legacy technology with modern risks

Businesses of all sizes and industries still rely on file servers and network attached storage (NAS) for inexpensive and readily expandable storage of shared files. These environments are used by many departments and collectively contain several Terabytes of files, about 15% of which contain sensitive or compliance regulated information. Typical types of  sensitive information stored on file servers include human resources data, personally identifiable information (PII), and intellectual property. Businesses need to understand which file shares contain sensitive information and then they need to secure that data using cost-effective solutions.
