Reduce Risk with Advanced Security Features and Reliability
The HPE StoreEver MSL3040 Tape Library provides the ultimate 'last line of defense' protection against the threat of ransomware for medium-sized businesses, as data stored on tape can be 'air-gapped' from the network. This means it is completely inaccessible to cyber attackers.
The HPE StoreEver MSL3040 Tape Library also offers multiple options to safeguard your data in the library or offsite with data encryption, depending on the requirements for policy, regulation, compliance, and centralized key management.
HPE secure manager license provides an additional level of security that lets you control access to the tape library by authorizing specific servers. It increases reliability by blocking disruptive traffic from unauthorized hosts to the library.
High availability path failover uses host drivers in conjunction with library and drive firmware to manage multiple paths across multiple SANs. It presents a single drive or robot path to applications and automatically transfer commands to an alternate path if the original one is lost.
