We have about 10 users on a SBS network and planning to purchase Symantec Backup Exec SBS and an HP DAT160 External USB Tape device
Now my questions
1. What type of security/password protection will i have on my tape backups. a dedicated person will take the tapes offsite but we want only authorised persons to be able to access backed up data. I have seen Software and Hardware encryption but dont know which one or how, i know the Dat160 Tape device does not supprt encryption? Advice here, i want my data rock solid secure
2. What is the best known backup strategy one can use? Data is crucial and around 100GB in size. We want daily and offsite
3. How long does the tapes last? Replacement time span if any?
