“We are pleased to team with storage industry leader Western Digital to offer our KeepVault cloud storage service for the WD Sentinel DX4000, which can help save a small business hundreds of dollars per year compared to competing services,” said Tom Aebli, AuthenTec Vice President of Software and eCommerce. “KeepVault has been uniquely designed to work with the new Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials, operating system powering WD Sentinel, protecting the Microsoft backups to secure offsite storage and enabling quick data recovery and system restoration.
