Data Encryption - Support

  • Software encryption is supported by all agents.
  • Hardware encryption is supported by all MediaAgents, if the devices attached to these MediaAgents support encryption.

    However, to confirm encryption support, we recommend that you refer to the drive vendors documentation. For more information on drive types supported by Commvault, see Tape Storage Matrix.

    Note: Hardware encryption is only supported by tape libraries.

  • Third-party hardware encryption

    Hardware encryption devices with their own key management software such as Network Appliances (formerly Decru’s) Datafort can be used. These inline devices are transparent to the data flow from Commvault. However, data written through these devices must be restored through these devices and it is the customers responsibility to provide and manage these devices.
