For maximum flexibility and performance, the Media Server Encryption Option (MSEO) encrypts at the media server, thereby avoiding impact to client operations. By providing parallelized and selectable encryption and compression, IT managers can choose what data to encrypt, what level of compression is most appropriate and what level of encryption key strength to use. This allows IT managers the flexibility to customize encryption requirements to align with overall business and SLA requirements. And because it encrypts at the media server, it frees up critical client operations from any CPU overhead.
For "set it and forget it" key management, MSEO offers automated key management that can be centrally located on the NetBackup master server. There is no need to manually track which key was used for which tape because it is automatically tracked.
