Storage is an integral part of business continuity. The explosive growth of digital content requires a technology that delivers high availability, scalability, reliability, which are prime requirements of today's business. The storage area network (SAN) is one promising solutions to handle storage demands of enterprise storage requirement. One of the major challenging task while designing SAN is addressing the security concerns. Since, SAN keeps the information in a centralized place, it is necessary to keep proper security measures to handle the internal and external attacks. This research paper discusses SAN architecture, various levels of threats, risks; security approaches and recommends an enhanced data security framework for the implementation of SAN as an enterprise storage solution.
