Keep Your Data Secure with Rimage Encryption Options

Often, it seems as if you can’t read a news article or view a news report without learning about another security breach resulting in consumer data being stolen. Now, more than ever, protecting data is vital to businesses and consumers. Did you know your Rimage system has several different options to encrypt the content that is being recorded?


Rimage offers several encryption features right out of the box, usable through both Quick Disc and via integrations utilizing the API. These encryption options provide the ability to store and distribute content that is safe from prying eyes, utilizing 256 bit high security encryption standards. An added benefit of optical media over sending data electronically is the Write Once feature of optical. You don’t need to worry about someone altering or “hacking” your recorded content.


Rimage offers three encryption tools that are seamlessly integrated into the Rimage workflow, allowing the same automation you can expect from your Rimage system.


  • PDF Encryption – Encrypt PDFs with password protection, so even if the PDF is copied to a hard drive later, the protection remains. Separate passwords can be set to allow access to the file but not access to modify the security settings, so the encryption can’t be removed without a second password.
  • ZIP Encryption – Encrypt any files with ZIP encryption, creating a password protected .zip file or a self-extracting file. Decide which files are encrypted and which files you’d like to leave out; you can even include instructions on how to get the password or other related information.
  • File Encryption – Encrypt individual files, including the file name which may itself contain sensitive information. Customers can then use the Rimage SpanRestore program to decrypt the files for access at a later time.


Rimage began including the first ZIP encryption in Producer Software Suite 8.2, but has continued to add features and the other encryption options in each release through Rimage Software Suite 9.0. Rimage recommends using RSS 9.0 or later releases for encryption needs, as it has the most options.


Whether you are protecting financial statements, health records, or customer data, Rimage systems offer powerful encryption to help keep important and confidential data secure.
