Storage-area networks are a popular and efficient way of building large storage systems both in an enterprise environment and for multi-domain storage service providers. In both environments the network and the storage has to be configured to ensure that the data is maintained securely and can be delivered efficiently. In this paper we will describe Storage Area Networks (SANs) and the benefits as well as the emerging need for them in businesses today. We will discuss the importance of SAN security and why it is crucial for protecting a company’s assets. This paper will touch upon common threats to a SAN and the precautions a business can take to protect itself. The main focus of this paper will be on securing a Storage Area Network by using best practices in setting up a SAN as well as securing the data on a day-to-day basis.
