11/26/2007: Extraordinary Use Case Demonstrates Need for Data Encryption

Extraordinary Use Case Demonstrates Need for Data Encryption

Backup without encryption will not make you happy. With the EMA E-Mail Archive Appliance®, ARTEC has stated this thesis for a long time. The fact that the backup specialist Iron Mountain gives us involuntary assistance is a remarkable irony of everyday life.

SearchStorage.de reports that a truck driver from Iron Mountain has severely damaged the reputation of the company. The cause is not something like a traffic accident, but the loss of a backup tape. The Problem: The information contained on the tape was not encrypted and is now freely available to any person that gets their fingers on it.

Once again, it is evident that the practical orientation of the EMA E-Mail Archive Appliance® pays off. ARTEC provides its customers with an appliance that delivers a sophisticated concept, which can prevent disasters such as this one right from the outset.
