6 Data Security Must Haves For Software-Defined Storage

As technology advances, the need for data security has reached an all-time high. In addition to our latest blog post on security, OSNEXUS has come up with 6 Data Security Must Haves For Software-Defined Storage. Take a look at our infographic or the list below.

  1. Data encryption on-the-wire and at-rest: Data needs protection when it’s stationary and in motion, so make sure you have one-click full drive software encryption with Intel AES-NI technology.
  2. Compliance with government regulations: Heard of NIST, FIPS, HIPAA, CJIS, or GDPR? These are some of the most recent and necessary government security regulations, and affect more individuals and organizations than you might think.
  3. Multi-factor authentication: Make sure logins are secure with multi-factor authentication that verifies identity with multiple methods in addition to username and password.
  4. Disaster recovery strategy: In order to be fully protected from threats of all types, your organization needs an in-depth disaster recovery plan, including data backup locally, across global datacenters, or in the cloud.
  5. Secure log reporting: Ensure all user log data is scrubbed of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) before leaving your organization for alerting, reporting, or auditing needs to avoid a data breach.
  6. Remote replication and snapshots: Protect your data from natural disasters to human error with storage software that contains remote replication and snapshots.
