Nexsan’s Assureon advanced archive system is ideal for freeing up primary storage, reducing the size and cost of backups, or complying with governmental regulatory requirements including HIPPA, SOX, and SEC-17.
Also corporate regulators have introduced stringent compliance archiving requirements regarding electronic communications in response to the explosive growth of email & instant messaging (IM) as principle business communication tools.
Enforce company data retention, privacy, and data protection policies. Archive data for days or decades in a system that is easy to manage and to use. Single pane of glass management makes it easy to create data retention rules and to apply them to files and folders.
Assureon is quite unique in that it requires no special APIs to be used, and is non-disruptive to users or existing applications.
It is important to note that multi-tenancy features allow service providers to offer archive as a service.
Storage Optimization – offload primary storage to free up space for active data and reduce the size, time and costs of monthly full backups
Regulatory & Corporate Compliance – comply with governmental regulatory requirements including HIPPA, SOX and SEC-17. Enforce company data retention, privacy and protection policies
Long-Term Archive – store managed data for days or decades with unsurpassed integrity and protection in an easy to administer system that resides on-premise, in the cloud, or both.

|Assureon Client||Copies or moves files from Windows onto the Assureon, leaving a small shortcut file behind|
|Hyper speed Restores||Because restores only require the shortcut files to be restored, time is significantly reduced|
|CIFS/NFS NAS Interfaces via Assureon Edge||Easy to use for all Windows and UNIX/Linux users and applications without changes being required. No development or use of special APIs are needed|
|Fingerprinting||When a file or object is archived, it is fingerprinted, so its history and contents cannot be altered after the fact (WORM)|
|Encryption||Each file can be optionally encrypted with a unique AES-256 encryption key to ensure security. Three copies of the key exist: one onsite and two at separate remote managed locations|
|File Integrity Checks||Files are stored twice, and a background process continually scans files and repairs them, using their copies even if they are not being accessed, if necessary|
|Active / Active Replication||Replicated Assureons are active/active, meaning that as long as both are healthy, they can service different requests, providing increased utilization of resources over active/passive architectures|
|Active / Active Ingestion||Assureon allows for ingestion of data at two sites in a replicated configuration|
|Cloud-based Archiving||An Assureon can be configured as a Virtual Assureon. This allows for multiple secure applications, departments or even separate companies to operate with complete physical, logical and encryption separation. It is an ideal cloud platform to offer Archive-as-a-Service.|
|Active Directory Integration||Assureon uses Active Directory integration to authenticate users.|
|Certificate-based Authentication||Certificate-based authentication can be used as an alternative to Active Directory authentication.|
|Powerful Search||Assureon Explorer, a web-based GUI permits easy searches of the entire archive with role-based restrictions. The Assureon Explorer also allows end users to restore their own files, if allowed by access and disposition policy.|
|Management Console||Single-pane-of-glass web-based management with role-based security.|
|Audit Trails||Track all users that were permitted or denied file access.|
|Retention Policies||Assureon makes it easy to define retention policies and to associate those policies to folders that are being archived for compliant and non-compliant environments.|
|Single-instance Storage||Identical files are only stored once, saving disk space and increasing performance.|
|Legal Hold||Assureon provides legal holds that can override retention policies.|
|File Versioning||Assureon can support multiple versions of a file and is configurable by the administrator.|
|AutoMAID®||AutoMAID is the industry’s most sophisticated power management system. Drives containing infrequently accessed data can be powered down when not being for significant energy savings.|
