Would you trust your

Many data centers are doing this regularly with their
customer's personal, private data.
Studies show that 60% of companies fail to encrypt tapes
before transporting them to storage facilities.
Data managers are playing a high-tech game of Russian
roulette that data thieves are winning with greater
frequency. The standard process of moving tapes to
storage results in a "zone of vulnerability" in
which tapes are subject to loss or theft. This "zone
of vulnerability" can be prevented simply and
affordably with little or no impact on your backup
tape-to-storage process leaves you vulnerable.
Data Solution® provides an easy-to-install,
easy-to-use way of securing tapes and cost effectively
moving to an advanced data backup and security system in
How the Solution works
The Secure Data Solution encrypts tape data before it is
transported and stored. Lost or stolen tapes are no

completely inaccessible to unauthorized parties. Tapes
remain secure even in storage. The Secure Tape Solution
fits simply into large data centers’ process for
creating and handling tapes.
(see figure below).
simplest configuration, where relatively few backup tapes
are generated, the new security method requires only the
addition of a single, channel-attached device that
encrypts tape images, without adding any load to the host
The solution does not disrupt operators’
Other configurations allow writing images directly to
tape without additional host involvement or
transmitting images over a network to tape drives,
DVD robots, or RAID arrays located at off-site
