End-to-end encryption for your hybrid cloud

ONTAP’s flexible encryption and key management features help guard your sensitive data on premises, in the cloud, and in transit. This includes hardware- and software-based encryption solutions, NetApp Storage Encryption (NSE), and NetApp Volume Encryption (NVE), which deliver necessary compliance across a wide range of deployments.

Secure purge helps you meet privacy standards by cryptographically shredding and sanitizing individual files, while Data Loss Prevention (DLP) protects data using encryption and secure boot solutions. In addition, “Write once, read many” (WORM) file locking ensures compliance with strict regulations and enables efficient recovery from ransomware attacks. And comprehensive logging and auditing monitors user activity and provides visibility to operations teams and management.

Address today’s biggest security threats

ONTAP features multi-factor authentication (MFA) to protect against weak administrative passwords, which is the leading cause of system compromises. Role-based access control (RBAC) lets you designate and validate authorized users, and secure multi-tenancy provides isolation and segmentation for clients or organizations within a single common cluster. And storage level file security prevents unauthorized administrators from accessing or deleting critical intellectual property.
