Encryption protects your data stored to tape
The SPHiNX provides optional data encryption by using strong AES-256 encryption and a robust key management infrastructure to satisfy regulatory compliance and strong company security policies. With SPHiNX all data at rest is considered to be data at risk thus data stored on SPHiNX disk is encrypted and any data written to physical tape can remain encrypted. If you backup to disk and archive to tape, then you can rest easy knowing that if the tapes are compromised in transport or the data gets into the wrong hands, you can avoid the enormous cost of a data breach notification.
Depending upon your business data archival policies, SPHiNX can completely remove physical tape from your environment while enabling immediate access to your data. With the support of optional data replication, SPHiNX is able to synchronize data copies between one or more sites by replicating data over the WAN between one or more SPHiNX systems. SPHiNX optimizes available network bandwidth by supporting bandwidth limit settings, multiple replication streams, and data reduction by transmitting only the delta changes over the network or WAN Acceleration which can drastically reduce latency and network overhead when transmitting data over the wide area network (WAN).
