in the headlines, and analysts warn that network-stored data is a major vulnerability. As a result, disk encryption has become a popular topic among storage administrators. Attaching storage to a network introduces security vulnerabilities that didn't exist with DAS, and companies are increasingly facing regulations requiring that they keep customer information private.
