I was hoping for some information and/or recommendations on server encryption.
We have a few clients that are in the financial sector holding confidential and sensitive data.
We currently have the server encrypted with Bitlocker, this is fine however the Windows Server Backup isn't encrypted.
These backup drives get taken off site in rotation each day and the clients are a little concerned that if a drive was to be mislaid (on public transport or something).
I have explained that the files are within a single file (the vhd image backup) and that firstly the person that happened across the hard drive would need to restore the backup to a machine before being able to access any of the files.
I said that I'd try and look in to alternative encryption methods for the backups. We'd like to keep with the full image backup for disaster recovery purposes.
Any ideas or recommendations?
