Encryption Required?

Post by tomnewman »

This probably sounds like a stupid question but I wanted to check my understanding was correct.

If you are doing secondary backups to tape of encrypted primary backups, am I correct in believing there is no need to encrypt the tape backups (as they are basically just copies of already encrypted files)?

Hello,
that's correct. No need for "double encryption".

Best regards,
Hannes
