Vantage provides the following features to enhance data protection:

  • By default, the logon string is encrypted to maintain the confidentiality of the username and password used to log on.
  • Optional data encryption of messages maintains confidentiality of the data transmitted to and from Vantage.
  • Automatic integrity checking insures that the data is not corrupted during the encryption/transmission/decryption cycle.
  • Optional BAR and DSA encryption provides confidentiality of data backups between the BAR server and the storage device.
  • Optional SSL/TLS protection for systems using LDAP authentication with simple binding, including:
    • Encryption of the LDAP authentication sequence between Vantage and the directory server.
    • Advanced TLS protection, which requires that Vantage authenticate itself to the directory or that Vantage and the directory mutually authenticate.
