Goodbye storage security; hello information lifecycle security

Information lifecycle security is a new approach to securing data based on the value of the content.

SINCE JOINING THE Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) in 2003, I've done a ton of research, analysis and consulting on storage security requirements and best practices. I've talked to hundreds of storage professionals and given dozens of presentations about storage security at industry events.

What I quickly learned in talking with storage professionals is that what I thought of as obligatory storage security "blocking and tackling" was beyond the capabilities of many sophisticated storage shops. Some smart storage executives dismissed the need for security, or equated storage security with basic SAN configuration stuff and backup/restore operations. Others agreed that a storage security problem existed, but they didn't have the skill or resources to address it. What's more, they received little help from their vendors. The situation was grim.
