Keep Your Data Secure
Storage Solutions from Buffalo Add Extra Layers of Defense
Losing sensitive data due to theft or damage to a physical device can crush an organization. At the same time, cyberattacks have become more frequent and sophisticated, forcing organizations to proactively protect hardware and information assets. And, if you’re in certain industries, like healthcare or financial services, you’re also under pressure to secure information to better meet compliance mandates like HIPAA compliancy and avoid hefty fines.
We build multiple layers of physical and digital security into our solutions that help you better protect your hardware assets and the valuable information stored on NAS devices. Here are some of Buffalo’s security solutions that will help strengthen your security posture:
Lock Down Hardware Assets with Physical Security Measures
Kensington Security Slot
Many of Buffalo storage devices include a Kensington slot that securely connects your storage device to a particular location, preventing removal.
Front Panel Lock
The front panel lock included on our TeraStation desktop products helps deter unauthorized users from removing the hard drives.
This security measure requires users to authenticate—via password or authentication server before the system boots up and information on the hard disks can be read. This helps prevent information from becoming compromised. Boot authentication is currently available on TeraStation™ 3010 and 5010 series NAS devices only.
Safeguard Information Stored Digitally
AES 256-bit encryption (Advance Encryption Standard)
Information stored on hard drives is encrypted until proper authorization is received. An additional deterrent when encryption is enabled prevents hard drives from one NAS device being used in another if removed or stolen. This is an optional feature that must be turned on for use.
Buffalo TeraStation NAS enables you to limit access to backups and establish read-only permissions for some users as part of your back-up solution. This way you can still access backed-up information in case of a ransomware attack.
Optional: Trend Micro Antivirus
The Security anti-virus service scans files on a scheduled or in real-time, protecting the data on the TeraStation from the threat of virus.
