Relying on third-party encryption tools results in a lack of awareness of the content and context of your backups. In fact, most data reduction algorithms break when they hit encrypted data streams.
With Veeam, end-to-end encryption is built-in and Veeam data reduction technologies like compression, deduplication and WAN Acceleration maintain their efficiency when used with Veeam encrypted backups.
For most organizations, a lost password means lost data. You don’t have to be most organizations. With Veeam, end-to-end encryption gives you lost password protection of your encrypted backups without compromising security.
How does it work?
With Veeam’s AES 256-bit encryption, you have the ability to secure your data:
You also have flexibility over when and where you choose to encrypt backups. For example, you can leave local Veeam backups unencrypted for faster backup and restore performance, but encrypt backups that are copied to an offsite target, tape or the cloud. You can also protect different backups with different passwords, while actual encryption keys are generated randomly within each session for added backup encryption security.
