Hardware: N/A
Software: No (Pivot3); Yes (HyTrust)
Hardware: N/A

Software: Because Pivot3 Acuity data encryption is a platform-native solution, encryption of data takes place after data deduplication and compression.

Because HyTrust is an end-to-end solution, encryption is performed at the start of the write path and some efficiency mechanisms (eg. deduplication and compression) are effectively negated.
