Cisco Storage Media Encryption (SME) protects data at rest on heterogeneous tape drives and virtual tape libraries (VTLs) in a SAN environment using secure IEEE-standard Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithms. Cisco SME hardware and software are fully integrated with the Cisco MDS 9000 family. Encryption is performed as a transparent fiber channel fabric service, which greatly simplifies deployment and management of sensitive data on SAN attached storage devices. Unlike competitive offerings, Cisco SME requires no downtime to deploy. Cisco SME is built on Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) system architecture and offers secure, comprehensive key management, with support for offline media recovery. Cisco SME provides a complete, integrated solution for encryption of data at rest on heterogeneous tape drives and VTLs. Storage in any virtual SAN (VSAN) can make full use of Cisco SME, providing exceptional flexibility for provisioning this transparent fabric service. Cisco SME requires no SAN reconfiguration or rewiring, eliminating downtime for deployment. Cisco SME employs clustering technology to enhance reliability and availability, enable automated load balancing and failover capabilities, and simplify provisioning. To simplify management, this encryption service is provisioned as a single, logical SAN fabric feature rather than as individual switches or modules. Secure lifecycle key management is included, with essential features such as key archival, shredding, automatic key replication across data centers, high-availability deployments and export and import for single- and multiple-site environments. Cisco SME provisioning and key management are both integrated into Cisco fabric manager; no additional software is required for management.
