The author emphasizes the importance of data encryption. According to the author, the main reasons for not encrypting are money and key management. However, the author says companies should have to find a way around them if they are serious about safeguarding their data. He adds that even if technical support can get over the cost justification and key management hurdles, encryption will have an effect on other storage management processes.
