Data subject and data protectors are two entities that are different from each other, though they both have to do with data. First of all, what or who is a data subject? The data subject has to do with any individual personality that can be directly or indirectly recognized via any means of data identifier such as an ID Number, a name, or location details.

It also refers to any individual that can be recognized through some definite factors about the person's physiological attributes, physical identity, genetic, economic, mental, social, or cultural identity. On the other hand, a data protector is a recovery software and automated backup for a single server to organization environments, thereby supporting tape storage targets or disk storage.

It was formerly and popularly referred to as HP data protector. It helps to provide an online, cross-platform backup of data for UNIX, Linux, and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
