For confidential data, Arkeia's Encryption Option for Backup Agents is ideal. This option allows data to be encrypted on the source data computer before it is transmitted over the network to a Backup Server.

Encryption on the source computer protects both file names and file contents during transmission and storage. This strategy also makes use of CPU resources on the source computer that are often otherwise unused, shortening the overall backup window.

Files remain secure on media attached to the Arkeia Backup Server or after replication using Arkeia's Backup Replication features. Of course, encryption can complement the use of any Arkeia Backup Agents for applications, databases, and virtual machines.
