Tape encryption solutions

What are the different tools available to take encrypted tape backup of iSeries?
A couple of solutions for tape encryption that I am aware of are Decru DataFort and PA Townsend Tape Encryption. I have not personally used either solution, and I'm sure there are other products out there, as well. I have had experience with another product, Alliance FTP with PGP option, by PA Townsend, and have been satisfied with the product as well as their support.
