Data Managers Benefit from Fujifilm Data Tape Leadership, SCI Cargo Security Expertise
FUJIFILM Recording Media today announced the immediate availability of the Fujifilm Tape Tracker(TM), a first-of-its-kind wireless tool to help data managers increase security of data by tracking in real-time the location and status of sensitive removable media cartridges while in transit.
Fujifilm is partnering with SC-Integrity (SCI), the world’s most comprehensive covert cargo monitoring, recovery and loss prevention service to provide real-time monitoring and notification for the Tape Tracker using the Fujifind(TM) interactive web application. Based in Bothell, Wash., SCI entered into an agreement in 2006 with the LoJack Corporation to add the power of the LoJack(R) brand to SCI’s well-known theft prevention, investigation, tracking and recovery solution for the global cargo security market. Fujifind is based on SCI’s powerful LoJack InTransit(TM) software platform and provides simple management of multiple Tape Trackers.
“The tremendous feedback we received from customers when we introduced this concept last year made clear – there is a significant desire to maintain visibility and control over removable media during shipment from one location to another,” said Daniel Greenberg, New Product Manager, Marketing, Fujifilm Recording Media. “The ability of tape to store large quantities of data in a cost effective, energy efficient, removable format make it a preferred medium to backup and archive critical business data. The Tape Tracker gives power back to the data managers to maintain a chain of custody for these assets as they move between data center backup, vault or disaster recovery destinations.”
Unique Product, Established Network
The Fujifilm Tape Tracker (patents pending) is designed within a half-inch tape cartridge format, enabling it to fit snugly and discreetly inside nearly any tape media case. The Fujifind application uses the information, tracking, geo-fencing and notification capability of the LoJack InTransit monitoring solution that currently provide corporations and government the ability to track and monitor high value cargo, audit driver activities, and conduct surveillance operations to ensure that their valuable assets are protected, worldwide.
LoJack InTransit uses the largest Law Enforcement Protocol and Dispatch Network in the cargo security business and the SCI Communications Command Center can dispatch appropriate authorities direct to the data tape location to ensure recovery, facilitate resolutions and prevent future losses.
“Data assets are well-protected in the data center and within a vault or duplicate operations center – but there has been no way to maintain continual chain of custody in real time. Now, with Tape Tracker combined with the LoJack InTransit, there is an effective solution,” said Robert Furtado, CEO, SC-Integrity. “If left unmonitored, back up, disaster recovery and archive data assets can become the Achilles heel to any business or an industry – particularly if the data is sensitive.”
Key features of the Fujifilm Tape Tracker system include:
The system will be demonstrated at the Fujifilm booth (#447) at the AFCOM Data Center World Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 1-2, 2008.
The Fujifilm Tape Tracker will be available through Fujifilm resellers in the United States at an MSRP of $150 per month. For more information, go to www.fujifilmusa.com/tapestorage
