Data at rest is subject to threats from hackers and other malicious threats. To prevent this data from being accessed, modified or stolen, organizations will often employ security protection measures such as password protection, data encryption, or a combination of both. The security options used for this type of data are commonly referred to as data at rest protection (DARP).
