At many organizations, data is the lifeblood of the company. So SQL Server has the responsibility for managing one of the organizationís most valuable assets. Unfortunately, the native SQL Server backup solutions do not encrypt this valuable data. So as backups are written to disk then to tape and eventually sent off site, they leave the door wide open to restore the backups. Protecting the backups with industry leading encryption algorithms is what these products accomplish. So if your backups are on disk, on tape, in a safe or off site, you can rest assured that they are secure.
