When you back up the data from a Teradata database to external storage media, the data may be vulnerable to attack. You can use BAR encryption solutions such as Quantum Scalar Key Manager to provide secure key management for the BAR system and restrict access to a few administrators. The Teradata BAR encryption solution integrates with the Teradata BAR Server and with a wide range of backup devices and Open Teradata Backup (OTB) compatible platforms, including:

  • BakBone NetVault 7.1 or later
  • Symantec NetBackup 5.0 or later.
