Secure your data against physical theft with Barracuda’s hardware-encrypted purpose-built backup appliances to prevent sensitive and critical data from falling into the wrong hands if disk drives are lost or stolen.

  • Barracuda Encrypted Backup allows organizations to quickly and cost-effectively deploy hardware-encrypted backup appliances in their environment to protect encrypted sources and meet regulatory requirements.
  • Barracuda Encrypted Backup appliances help secure against data loss if disk drives are lost or stolen. The encrypted data on the disk drives is inaccessible when separated from the backup appliance – making sure it cannot be used maliciously when in the wrong hands.
  • Barracuda Encrypted Backup appliances use hardware encryption, avoiding the significant performance and efficiency degradations that plague software-based approaches.
    • Encryption models protect data with hardware-based encryption, including a Trusted Computing Group (TCG) Enterprise_A, TCG with FIPS 140-2 certification, Level 2.
    • Communication between the RAID controller and the hard disks uses AES 128-bit encryption. However, data is stored on the hard disks using AES 256-bit encryption.
    • The Barracuda Encrypted Backup appliance ships with a default security/encryption key. Once you enter a new encryption key during the initial configuration, the key is known only to you; Barracuda cannot retrieve your key.

    • The Barracuda Encrypted Backup appliance also provides the option to configure a power-on password for additional security.
