Affected Products:

Encryption Hierarchy:

  1. Highest Priority - Self-Encrypting Drives
  2. Next priority - Hardware-Crypto Accelerator

Note: User and Common encryption will be applied with any of the above encryption techs and is not impacted by any priority.
Note: Whenever an endpoint has Hardware-Crypto Accelerator and Self-Encrypting Drive installed and enabled, the policy to encrypt both may be enabled by the Dell Data Protection | Enterprise Edition, Self-Encrypting Drive will take priority over Hardware-Crypto Accelerator in this scenario.
