Unity Connect Encrypted Messages at rest

Rising star

Existing customer has just been handed the requirement that their Voice Mail be encrypted while at rest.  They are integrated with Outlook today.  I looked through the installation documentation and I do not initially find anything that talks about being able to have the messages encrypted at rest.  There is to have in encrypted in transit.

with integration with Outlook, would it be up to Outlook to encrypt stored messages?

Is there the ability to have Unity Connect to do encryption while at rest?

Self-encrypting drive
Cisco Unity Connection also supports self-encrypting drives (SED). This is also called Full Disk Encryption
(FDE). FDE is a cryptographic method that is used to encrypt all the data that is available on the hard drive.
The data include files, operating system and software programs. The hardware available on the disk encrypts
all the incoming data and decrypts all the outgoing data. When the drive islocked, an encryption key is created
and stored internally. All data that is stored on this drive is encrypted using that key and stored in the encrypted
form. The FDE comprises a key ID and a security key.
