Nevertheless, Autonomy is providing two distinctive services to the financial company that are HP Data Protector and HP StoreOnce Catalyst Furthermore, the former one is designed to effectively encrypt the data in order to minimize the threat of hacking and the other one serves as a mean for speeding up the process of data storage and access.
