Optimal data security
To comply with regulatory requirements and preserve stakeholder trust, organizations must protect data from unauthorized access and unintentional loss. Tape cartridge portability facilitates remote, offline data storage for superior protection from natural or manmade threats that can impact online or on-site data storage. IBM LTO Ultrium 8 data cartridges are compatible with LTO Ultrium 8 tape drives, which offer device-level data encryption to ensure data privacy and reduce the risk of data corruption due to virus or sabotage. The WORM cartridge model stores data in a non-erasable, non-rewritable format to prevent overwriting of stored data and reduce the risk of data loss due to human error.
