Statistics show almost 179 million database records were exposed in 2017. As data breaches become more common, business owners and consumer will continue to seek new ways to protect their data from exposure. While there are numerous ways to safeguard against data breaches, one of the most effective involves hardware-based full disk encryption.
Like with other encryption methods, hardware-based full disk encryption uses cryptography to turn readable data, such as credit card numbers and Social Security numbers, into unreadable data.

Data that's encrypted can technically still be leaked or accessed. However, encryption makes the data unreadable, so anyone who accesses it won't be able to use it.
Hardware-based full disk encryption specifically refers to encryption tools or solutions that use hardware to encrypt all the data on a disk. In other words, hardware-based full-disk encryption doesn't rely on software, and users won't be able to choose specific parts of data on a disk to encrypt. Rather, it encrypts all the data on a specific disk using hardware.
When compared to software-based encryption, hardware-based solutions are considered more effective. Since they encrypt data using physical components, they can't be compromised as easily as software-based solutions. Therefore, many business owners and consumers use hardware-based encryption for their computers and devices.
Hardware-based full disk encryption is just one of many ways to protect against data loss. Considering it's superior level of performance that virtually eliminates the risk of data theft, though, it's expected to become more popular in the years to come.
