What is Storage Encryption?

Storage encryption refers to encrypting data before it is written to storage media, such as hard drives or solid-state drives, to protect it from unauthorized access.

This can be done using a variety of encryption algorithms, such as AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) or RSA (Rivest, Shamir, Adleman), and requires a key for decryption.

This key can be stored remotely or on the device itself, with the former being more secure. Encrypting data at rest, or storage encryption, is one of the best practices for data security, especially for sensitive data.
