The audit covers the use of Assureon by organizations based wholly or in part in Germany as part of their efforts to comply with German auditing processes. It also enables Imation and its partners to offer Assureon and its best-in-class storage backup and archive capabilities as part of the comprehensive IT solutions they build to store and protect high-value data for end users throughout the nation.
“PS 880 certification enables us to bring the variety of benefits of our Nexsan Assureon solutions to the full spectrum of Imation partners and customers throughout the nation”
PS 880 procedures certify that accounting-relevant products offered for sale and used properly comply with generally accepted German accounting principles. Solutions are audited in detail to test their processing functions and rules, as well as their security aspects such as access protection and data security.
“PS 880 certification enables us to bring the variety of benefits of our Nexsan Assureon solutions to the full spectrum of Imation partners and customers throughout the nation,” said Mike Stolz, vice president of marketing and global services for Imation’s Nexsan solutions. “With Assureon, we provide our growing customer base with a simple platform to securely preserve and access their high-value data and give them absolute confidence that their files will be kept secure and contain the exact same data over time as they did when they were created.”
Imation’s Nexsan Assureon is a family of secure storage solutions that solve these problems and reduce storage cost by offloading and deduplicating data from primary storage that is infrequently used or has aged by policy. Assureon, through policy automation, can eliminate or greatly reduce the size, cost and complexity of backups for primary and infrequently accessed data. Data integrity features like file-fingerprinting and automated self-healing integrity checks ensure that high-value data is protected throughout its lifecycle. Assureon’s security features also comply with corporate and governmental regulatory requirements, making it the ideal solution for medical, financial and government organizations. Architected to be automated and hands-off, the Assureon experience allows administrators to focus resources and spending on primary storage.
