What would YOU do if you lost everything? World Backup Day – 31st March 2020

  Posted on February 25, 2020

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.


Build up your 2020 New Year Resolutions with Verbatim

  Posted on December 4, 2019

It’s that time of the year when, after weeks of excess booze and food consumption, we turn our attention to self-improvement with New Year resolutions. Whether this is to cut down on drinking, start eating healthily, reduce spending or to become more environmentally friendly. However, once the novely of a fresh New Year wears off, resolutions are usually broken within the first few weeks.

So why not set resolutions that are achievable?


USB-CTM Multiport Hubs and Adapters to Compliment the Latest Laptops and MacBooks

  Posted on September 30, 2019

USB-C™, the new standard of USB, is already included in devices such as the latest laptops, MacBooks, phones and tablets, and will spread to pretty much everything that currently uses the older, larger USB connector.  USB-C™ is a natural evolution with many strong features including fast charging, data transfer speeds of up to double that of USB 3.0, and a smaller connector shape that is reversible making it easier to plug in.

To enable people to link these latest USB-C devices with peripherals that have other connectors – including HDMI, Ethernet, VGA, SD / microSD Cards and regular USB-A – it is likely that a USB-C adapter will be needed.  To support this demand, Verbatim has launched a range of elegant multiport hubs and adapters that provide the flexibility and convenience to connect to a wide selection of peripherals.

Verbatim launches Fingerprint Secure Hard Drive with 256-bit Encryption

  Posted on June 17, 2019

The new Verbatim Fingerprint Secure Hard Drive uses a combination of AES 256-bit hardware encryption and biometric technology to seamlessly encrypt all data on the drive in real-time ensuring that any data saved on it is safe from unauthorised access if ever lost or stolen.  The external hard drive is quick and easy to use and is compliant with GDPR requirements as 100% of the drive is securely encrypted.

The built-in fingerprint recognition system in the Verbatim HDD allows access for up to eight authorised users and one administrator. Once set up, users can lock and unlock the device in seconds by just using their registered fingerprint.  The hard drive does not store passwords in the computer or system's volatile memory making it far more secure than software encryption.
