Question from Jeromy : I run a business that deals with some pretty sensitive customer data that I would really prefer not to have stored in the cloud.
I know that cloud storage is supposed to be encrypted and secure, but with all the hacking going on these days I just don’t trust it.
Right now we’re using dual 2TB external USB hard drives to back up all of our data but I’m worried that a fire could wipe it all out.
What I’d really like to get is a 4TB external hard drive that’s fireproof. Do you know where I can get one?
Rick’s answer: Jeromy, a company called ioSafe makes awesome hard drive enclosures that are not only fireproof, but waterproof as well.
As you know, much of the damage that results from a fire is actually caused by the water that’s used to douse the flames, so you can see why this is important.
ioSafe makes a fantastic device called the ioSafe Solo G3.
This 4TB fireproof and waterproof drive will hold all of your data and protect it from being lost due to fire or water damage.
I hope this helps Jason. Good luck!
Update from Jeromy: This is exactly what I was looking for Rick. I ordered it this morning. Thanks for your help!
