The financial IT manager has continuously growing data storage demands. Protecting data, a company’s most valuable asset, is what Tributary Systems has been doing for many years. The Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) record retention requirements aren’t going to ease up any time soon, making demands on long term data storage space.
Security is critical to the banking/finance industry. Data encryption and compression are built into the lowest levels of Tributary’s virtual tape solutions. Native AES data encryption is supported by Storage Director, without a separate FIPS encryption add-on. The system can compress and encrypt data at ingestion and store it on the disk cache and write it off to tape, encrypted; or it can decrypt and decompress data and write it to tape in the native backup application’s format. Storage Director and ViTAL backup storage solutions are presently running in multiple production data centers at Fortune 20 customers in the banking and finance industries.
