SOX Data Retention Requirements

One of the SOX backup requirements is to keep point-in-time snapshots of technical and financial systems for external auditors. These snapshots must show the status of the financial system of every quarter for a fiscal year, which equates to four full system backups per year. Those backups must then be stored offsite for up to seven years.

Lower-Cost Retention for SOX Compliance

Traditionally businesses have relied on tape for long-term data archiving. Besides the inherent costs of storing physical media offsite for years, tapes are also vulnerable to corruption over time – leading to potentially serious consequences if necessary data cannot be retrieved in an audit.

Archiving with Zetta eliminates a number of the costs and risks associated with tape archiving. Because Zetta backup is an online-only solution that requires no hardware, there are no support contracts, hardware contracts or sending tapes offsite. With Zetta there are no additional costs or fees to archiving, and data can be stored for long periods of time at a significantly lower cost than tape storage.
