Assureon’s advanced archive and security features make it ideal for primary storage optimization, regulatory and corporate compliance, and the secure, long-term retention of files.
It offloads data from primary storage to free up space for active data and greatly reduces the size, cost and complexity of backups.
Security features comply with corporate and governmental regulatory requirements including HIPAA, SOX and SEC-17.
SECURE ARCHIVE STORAGE
There is some data that is too private to be seen and too important to be lost, important to tampered with or lost, but you have tight budgets and time constraints.
Up to 80% of data on primary storage is unstructured and either never changes or changes infrequently but it’s imperative that you keep and protect this data.
This data can be easily offloaded from expensive primary storage to cost-effective Nexsan Assureon archive storage without any disruption to ongoing operations.
Assureon is designed to be tamper-proof from even the harshest ransomware attacks.

File Serialization - Serial numbers are assigned to each individual file to ensure no files are changed, missing, or inappropriately added.
Secure Time Stamp -Use of a global, redundant, secure time source using Stratum Level 1 hardware time sources to ensure accurate time stamp.
Auto File Repair - Continually verifies against fingerprints and repairs using copies and safeguarded by RAID disk arrays for days or even decades.
Regulatory Compliance - Governmental and Corporate compliance of HIPAA, GLBA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP), SEC 17A-4 and PCI DSS.
Secure Cloud Archive - Files are individually encrypted with its own AES-256 key to provide separation, security, and reporting of data for each client, enabling easy import into billing systems.
Storage Optimization - Archiving unstructured and infrequently used data frees up primary data and dramatically reducing the size, time and cost of the backup process.
Data Longevity - Ensures adherence to guidelines for data retention, disposition, privacy, protection, chain of custody, litigation readiness and risk mitigation.
