1. Tape Mgmt Systems (again)

I recently made a posting, to this newsgroup and others, requesting
info on what (if any) tape management software folks out there are
using or have looked at.

One of the replies mentioned 'Secure Tape Interface'. This is not
familiar to me. Can anyone point me at the supplier, or offer any
useful info about the software, please?

Also, if anyone who didn't respond yet to my original request for info
still wants to, it's not too late. Thanks to those who have already done so.
I'll post a summary of results back to the same newsgroups when the survey
is completed.

The original questionnaire follows. Again, please respond by email, to
