eMag Solutions Announces Availability of MediaMerge/TapeSecure; New Software Application Enables the Company's Partners and Clients to Safely Secure Tape Copies at No Cost before Sending Them off-Site for Compliance, Legal Discovery, or Storage.

NEW YORK -- eMag Solutions, a leading international electronic discovery company, today announced the availability of its new MediaMerge/TapeSecure (MM/TapeSecure) software application at the LegalTech New York Conference. MM/TapeSecure enables eMag's partners and clients to securely transport data off-site while maintaining regulatory compliance with data security and privacy laws.

Today, most organizations send their tape copies off-site for discovery purposes or archiving without encrypting the data. As a result, the important data contained on those tapes becomes vulnerable if the tapes are lost or stolen. And indeed there have been many recent high profile instances of companies losing back-up tapes that contain critical customer information.

Through the use of MM/TapeSecure, eMag's partners and clients can encrypt their tape back-ups at no cost during the copy process via a small computer system interface (SCSI) device. In addition, these organizations no longer have to manage multiple proprietary back-up encryption methodologies. Public key cryptography is used to encrypt and decrypt tape data using asymmetric keys. These keys allow a corporation or law firm to use an encryption key for encrypting the data and then provide a decryption key to the vendor for use in decrypting and reading the tape data. MM/TapeSecure users are also able to choose between various encryption algorithms, including 3DES, RSA, DSA, DH, Blowfish and AES.

"By utilizing MM/TapeSecure, our partners and clients can now securely copy their valuable tape back-ups at no cost and confidently send them off-site," said Brendan Sullivan, president of eMag Solutions. "Data owners can now rest assured that even if the tape gets lost, the data will remain inaccessible thus ensuring secure data protection."
