Crypto Complete offers native backup (tape) encryption for IBM i (iSeries) customers that wish to protect their sensitive backup media. This encryption is provided by commands in Crypto Complete which can encrypt and save entire libraries or individual objects. Symmetric keys or passphrases can be used to protect the encrypted backups.
AES encryption is implemented to provide strong protection for your backups. AES follows standard (non-proprietary) specifications as published by the United States National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Crypto Complete supports key lengths of AES128, AES192 and AES256.
Additional benefits of Crypto Complete's backup encryption:
Crypto Complete's backup and restore commands can be entered on the IBM i command line, placed in CL programs, incorporated in BRMS and used in job schedulers on the IBM i.
