Release Notes August 2021

Release Date: 2021-08-26

Version: 4.30-10.0.el7

Important Notice for all HIAB customers

Last year we changed the way we handle encryption of HIAB backups to increase security, speed and reliability. This has been implemented for encryption and decryption of current backups, however we have kept the legacy decryption function to support older backups.

HIAB Backups have been using the new method since January 2021. If you have not performed a HIAB backup since January 2021, you should perform a backup to ensure that it can still be decrypted successfully if needed.

The legacy method of decryption will be removed in September 2021. If there is a potential issue with this, please contact Outpost24 Support.
