Backup encryption to tape

By StorageGeek ·
Many of us in the storage side of IT are facing a new challenge with tapes falling off trucks and new legislation requiring the protection of the data contained within.

I thought I would start a topic related to encrypting tape backups and get others to join in with their experiences and lessons learned.

Currently I;m working on such a project and have looked at hardware solutions from Decru, NeoScale and Kasten Chase and software solutions from Veritas ( my current gig is a Veritas..Symantec.. shop), PGP and IBM's Encryption Facility (IEF).

From left field I have Falconstor's VTL with tape encryption option and so on.

Anyone want to share their trial and tribulations feel free to jump in!

VTL solution in lieu of Falconstore

by carlosreyes2k In reply to Backup encryption to tape

Check out Sepaton's VTL solution.
It's a good one with a lot of emulations.
Back up apps just think it's another tape system.
