Capabilities & Benefits

AES-256 Software Encryption

Nutanix native software-based encryption is a simple to deploy and cost-effective option designed for Nutanix HCI. Leveraging a NIST certified FIPS 140-2 level 1 compliant encryption module, AOS software encryption is ideal for most use cases.

Built-In Key Management

Nutanix provides native data security without any mandate for a third party key manager. Securely store keys and eliminate the need to procure a third-party solution.

Hardware-Based Encryption

Nutanix fully supports the use of Self-Encrypting Drives (SED). Though more costly, they are ideal for use cases where a hardware-based solution is required for regulatory or policy compliance. Additionally, Nutanix supports dual encryption by layering software over hardware-based schemes.

Enterprise Key Management

Nutanix software and hardware encryption can utilize existing Enterprise Key Management (EKM) solutions. Easily migrate between Nutanix native and EKM.

DARE to Encrypt!

Hackers have countless tricks up their sleeves for getting their hands on your confidential data. Make sure that when they reach the prize, there’s nothing they can do with it.
