Luminex Software Inc claims to have implemented its DataWARE Channel Gateway mainframe tape encryption solution at a leading US bank to help protect sensitive client data.
Luminex offers mainframe enterprises solutions for securely protecting, storing and distributing their business-critical, sensitive and confidential data. The software vendor says the bank selected its solution after an extensive evaluation process which included mainframe encryption solutions from other major industry vendors.
According to Luminex, by implementing the solution, the bank demonstrated its commitment to protecting client data. The Channel Gateway is said to have enabled the bank to secure data for its off site backup and recovery tapes without changing its backup and recovery process or modifying any of the existing backup and tape applications.
Luminex’s President, Michael Saunders, said, The installation demonstrates the true value of mainframe channel-based gateway and encryption solutions. The Luminex Channel Gateway installs quickly, supports existing tape library infrastructures and in the case of the bank delivered a net increase in tape backup performance. This includes the encryption process.
