    Data security breaches can be disastrous for any organization. Unauthorized access to stored credit card numbers, patient information, intellectual property, or other sensitive information can cost businesses and their customers money, ruin reputations, and jeopardize compliance with government regulations.

    What is AES-NI - first answer
    AES-NI are a set of six new instructions introduced by Intel when we introduced the new 2010 Intel® Core™ processor family code named Westmere. AES-NI stands for Advanced Encryption Standard - New Instructions. These instructions implement hardware accelerated versions of certain compute intensive steps used in the AES (RijnDael) algorithm.

    Okay - so what is the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)?
