Software-based encryption for backup tapes

  • Description

    Software-based encryption for NonStop backup tapes

    SecurTape provides software-based encryption to secure the data at rest on your NonStop backup tapes. It co-operates with the standard NonStop Tape utilities BACKUP, RESTORE and BACKCOPY, MEDIACOM and BR2, as well the TMF audit & online dump and restore software, transparently adding the encryption and decryption of the data.
