Built-in (native)
Pivot3 Acuity 10.6 introduced native data encryption capabilities for storage volumes, however encryption keys need to be generated by 3rd party security tools (currently only HyTrust KeyControl is supported).

With Acuity data encryption volumes can be encrypted on creation through policy configuration. Pivot3 designed its data encryption algorithms to leverage Intel Xeon CPUs AES New Instructions (AES NI) to ensure minimal performance impact and low overhead. However, as encrypting a volume does cause a small degradation in performance, Pivot3 recommends encrypting only those volumes that contain sensitive information.

Data encryption can also be established using 3rd party security software.
