BuffaloLink Simple and Secure Cloud Access Service
“Being connected to your content is no longer a luxury but a necessity

Available on the forthcoming LinkStation 400 Series, BuffaloLink is a cutting edge service that securely connects users to their digital content for easy management and access anytime, anywhere over the Internet. Users can easily access the content on their Buffalo network attached storage (NAS) device while away from home and consolidate supported Buffalo NAS devices for easy remote access from a single account.

Architected from the ground up by Buffalo Technology, the BuffaloLink cloud relay system was designed to provide the utmost ease of use and performance, promoting an exceptional user experience. Hosted by Buffalo on servers in the U.S., Europe and Asia, BuffaloLink is a free service on supported Buffalo products, such as the LinkStation 400 Series of NAS devices, launching in early 2013. BuffaloLink is easy to set up and manage, with no advanced firewall configurations or membership fees.

BuffaloLink account registration and login to personal content is accessible at one easy to remember URL – www.BuffaloLink.com. Its user-friendly interface provides simple navigation, making it easy for users to register and log in for immediate access to their data. Consumers can easily access multiple supported products from one password protected account rather than maintaining instructions and login credentials for each Buffalo device. While on the go, users can access content from their mobile devices; apps for Apple® and Android™ smartphone and tablet devices expand accessibility, making it even easier and more convenient for users to connect to their content when and where they need it.
