What would YOU do if you lost everything? World Backup Day – 31st March 2019

  Posted on March 21, 2019

So, what is backup?

Creating a backup refers to making a ‘copy’ of the data (e.g. images, videos, important documents) or ideally two copies, and keeping both copies in case something happens to the original. Transferring your holiday or wedding pictures from your camera to your memory card or hard drive to free up space in your camera is not backing up – the idea of a back­up is to have spare copies saved on other storage devices in case something happens to the master files.

The downlight will primarily be used for general lighting in working areas such as offices or reception areas, but also corridors, foyers, hotels, restaurants, display rooms and shops.

Keeping your data secure with Verbatim’s keypad entry encrypted HDDs and SSDs

  Posted on January 29, 2018

In today's world, the security of your confidential data is of the utmost importance. Imagine losing your personal files or highly confidential information from work and knowing that anyone can access the data because it was saved on a standard unencrypted storage device. To prevent this from happening, Verbatim has launched two military-grade hardware encrypted storage devices – the Store‘n’Go Secure Portable HDD (1TB) and the Store‘n’Go Secure Portable SSD (256GB).

Using AES 256-bit hardware encryption, the Verbatim drives mandatorily encrypt all the files loaded onto the drives in real time. With a built-in keypad for PIN code input, the drives do not store passcodes in the system's volatile memory making them far more secure than drives using software encryption.
