Several aspects need to be taken into account when evaluating the security of a storage solution. In this study, the Best Current Practices (BCP) of the SNIA were followed and then a deeper analysis was performed on the security of data at rest and the risk of intrusion.

The Scality RING solution complies with the SNIA BCP, which consist of more than one hundred recommendations. More than thirty thousand automated tests stressed the Scality platform, and were unable to compromise the security of data at rest. The authentication and access control to the data was thoroughly tested and passed our tests. In the advent of a compromise of a storage node, only partial and non exploitable data is leaked. Of course, this depends on the configuration of the tiering, replication and erasure codes.
