Robot/SAVE 11.0 encrypts critical system i data for more secure backup and recovery.

Robot/SAVE 11.0 offers many more advantages than other data recovery software, including data encryption -Help/Systems, developer of the Robot Automated Operations Solution for the IBM System i, announces the release of Robot/SAVE 11.0, the newest version of its backup software. Robot/SAVE 11 now allows users to encrypt data as it is saved to tape, making it unreadable if the tape is lost or stolen.

“Robot/SAVE 11.0 offers many more advantages than other data recovery software, including data encryption,” said Tom Huntington, VP of Technical Services of Help/Systems. “This alleviates the concern of liability or damages incurred should back-up tapes be lost or stolen.”

If backup tapes are lost or stolen, a company could be liable for millions of dollars in damages. Data encryption prevents unauthorized access to critical personal, financial, and confidential data that’s stored on tape. Encryption also allows users to secure data as a requirement of privacy laws or government regulations, such as PCI, Sarbanes-Oxley, and HIPAA.

Robot/SAVE provides four encryption levels:

  •      Low encryption (uses an internally-defined algorithm)
  •     Medium encryption (uses the Data Encryption Standard)
  •     High128 encryption (uses the Advanced Encryption Standard)
  •     High256 encryption (uses the Advanced Encryption Standard, with a 256-bit key)

Robot/SAVE data recovery software also maintains a secure cross-reference file of the encryption keys used to encrypt data.

“Because any encrypted data cannot be restored without the correct encryption key, files are safe should they fall into the wrong hands,” said Huntington. “Even so, the simplicity of Robot/SAVE makes the encryption process a seamless part of an overall backup strategy.

Robot/SAVE backup software offers the following protective features:

  •     Automated backup and recovery
  •     Online guided restoration
  •     An object archive system
  •     Error-free tape management
  •     Data encryption
  •     And more…

Robot/SAVE is the most comprehensive backup software available today for the IBM® System i™ (System i5™ and iSeries™). It offers automated backup, online guided restoration, object archive, error-free tape management, data center management, Domino online backup, and now data encryption. In today’s world, maintaining the security of backups is crucial. With Robot/SAVE, users can feel confident their data is safe.
