DATA SECURITY

Data security means protecting data, such as a database, from destructive forces and from the unwanted actions of unauthorized users. Disk encryption refers to encryption technology that encrypts data on a hard disk drive. Disk encryption typically takes form in either software or hardware. Disk encryption is often referred to as on-the-fly encryption (OTFE) or transparent encryption.

Software-based security solutions encrypt the data to protect it from theft. However, a malicious program or a hacker could corrupt the data in order to make it unrecoverable, making the system unusable. Hardware-based security solutions can prevent read and write access to data and hence offer very strong protection against tampering and unauthorized access.

Hardware-based security solutions are seen today to be more secured than software-based security solutions. This assumption is broken only if the hardware itself is malicious or contains a backdoor.
