The Atlantic.Net Cloud Platform encrypts customer data stored at rest by default with no additional action required by the customer. This is accomplished through industry standardized encryption mechanisms.
Atlantic.Net believes encryption of customer’s data at rest shouldn’t be an optional feature and is now a requirement of all computing. That’s why our world-class encryption is implemented in a transparent manner, with no further need for configuration by the user.
- Data is automatically encrypted prior to being written to the disk.
- Data is encrypted using Advanced Encryption Standard 256-bit (AES-256). This encryption standard is the only publicly accessible encryption cipher approved by the National Security Agency (NSA) for top secret information.
- Each encryption key used to encrypt data is itself encrypted with a set of master keys.
