The SecureCopy3 system offers a fast, efficient and straightforward means of converting an existing stock of unencrypted archive tapes to a secure archive without the need for any system connection.
The SecureCopy3 can also be used for off- line encryption of tapes from multiple systems, to allow them to be shipped off- site to a DR facility. Tapes can then be restored using either another SecureCopy3 unit, or direct to a system using Paranoia3 units.
The SecureCopy3 offers a complete stand-alone solution to allow users a simple and fast way to convert an archive of tapes including SDLT, LTO-3, LTO-4, LTO-5 tapes to be converted to secure encrypted tapes. SecureCopy3 is fully compatible with the Paranoia3 units, so allowing tapes stored in an off-site vault to be converted in-situ, rather than taking the risk of transporting unencrypted tapes.
SecureCopy3 can also be used to convert between different types of media, i.e. connect a SDLT as input and LTO4 as output to enable a complete refresh of media to encrypted tapes.
The SecureCopy3 system requires no reconfiguration to handle different formats of tape media from varying software packages and simply converts block- for- block, as well as handling the encryption and compression.
For ease of use the source tapes must be write protected before the copy is enabled, ensuring a simple operation without the chance of accidentally overwriting the source tape.
The SecureCopy3 comes complete with all necessary configuration software, which simplifies and controls the operation, as well as offering certain audit trails to be printed. The design ensures that only write protected tapes are considered as the source.
What others say about us
“Without the professional and expert support of Life IT, we wouldn’t have had the quality product we now have. They gently but insistently pushed the boundaries of our assumptions during the analysis phase, getting us to challenge our mind-sets and think outside the box. They then worked seamlessly as part of our team and delivered to time and to budget – no mean feat”.

“As we’d already invested significantly in Lotus Notes and Domino, a solution that built on our existing investment and skills was ideal. Life IT understood what was important to us and delivered a solution that met our needs. We’ve already seen the number of ‘distress calls’ to the sales office reduce as our sales managers can easily access customer data off line wherever they are and we’ve had positive feedback all round about the ability to update their call reports instantly on the road.”

“The Life IT solution has provided us with a significant reduction in support and maintenance costs and is an easy to use, more resilient and more easily maintainable system. As a business that handles thousands of transactions a day from 12 different own brand or white label websites it was vital that the whole process was seamless and, with the renewal of the support and maintenance contract from our existing supplier looming, it was also vital that the project came in on deadline. Life IT achieved this and more as they provided us with additional MI functionality and supported our staff whilst transferring their skills.’
Head of IT Development—DLR
“Life IT are doing a great job providing a very professional and efficient service. They are almost silently efficient and just get things done – only escalating issues when necessary. Their expertise in the AS400 is a key strength ensuring a real depth to their service and they keep us up to date with advances in technology too. So from an AS400 perspective I have very little to worry about.”

“After the restructure I was left with a critical resource gap which quickly needed filling, having worked with Life IT before I gave them a call. Their response was swift and efficient. They now work as a virtual Center Parcs help desk team providing a strength and depth of support. Their flexible working based on a time bank system is real value for money. So not only do I get an expert and efficient service, I have reduced my resource costs!”

“We wanted flexible support to ensure 24/7 cover and Life IT worked with us to deliver this. Life IT has become integrated into the Bentley way of working and their role has expanded into looking at the technical side of the application as well as the support. “Our relationship has been built up over a significant period of time and both sides have worked hard to develop a supplier/customer relationship that can be used as a model throughout Bentley. We are now in the position where we have a pro-active partnership, Life IT are treated as part of Bentley, and that is a credit to them”.
