Tape Vaulting and Tape Collect Services:
The best choice for the security of your data. Keeping backup media in physically separate locations from your systems is strictly necessary to prevent copies from being lost with the originals in the event of a theft, fire, flood or other catastrophic event.
Secure retention and availability of data has always been a critical issue. Corporate data is vital to the company’s business. It is part of the company’s assets and, as such, should be retained.
When it comes to digital document storage, it’s clear that technological progress has quickly led to the creation of so much digital information, organized in a way that guarantees:
- access speed
- protection from unwanted access
- retention over time
If, for the first two characteristics, you have to rely on a state-of-the-art operating system, for the last one, our partner Laus Informatica provides Tape Collect and Tape Vaulting services that help to organize, manage the transport and ensure the retention over time of magnetic media (off-site backup).
The custody and transport service is customizable according to the criticality levels of your business. The backup tapes are individually stored in envelopes and sealed with specific “anti-burglary” security labels in order to comply with all the requirements of the law on privacy for data processing (Law 196/2003). Handling will be carried out by anonymous means using special security suitcases, equipped with suitable shock-absorbing material and in compliance with the “recommendations for the management and storage of magnetic media” issued by the ECMA (European Computer Manufacturers Association). All vehicles used for transport are equipped with a satellite tracking system (GPS) with automatic request to the operative assistance center in the event of collision/break-ins. The backups of data and configurations can thus be stored in a different place and at a proper distance from the company’s headquarters in controlled environmental conditions with the certainty of the usability of the backup at all times.
The Tape Collect and Tape Vaulting service includes:
- Tape Vaulting
- Collection and delivery service through personalized contracts, n.b.d., 4h, h24
The storage of magnetic media will take place at the vault designed and built in accordance with the “recommendations for the management and storage of magnetic media” issued by the ECMA (European Computer Manufacturers Association) regarding the control of humidity and temperature. The access to the vault is protected by a 15 cm thick Martin Siemens steel door, for a total mass of 460 kg, with either a double bit ISN11 key lock or a self-powered digital combination with six variable numbers. On request, the magnetic media will be indexed in advance by affixing barcodes to allow any search in a fast and reliable way.
The customer will be given the index to facilitate the request of the media for consultation, data reconstruction, recycling of videotapes. The vault is CCTV-monitored and is equipped with a fire-fighting system. Inside the bunker, anti-seismic and anti-intrusion sensors are installed to protect against external attacks.
