Keep Your Data Secure

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:


Snapshot - Snapshots are the perfect complement to your secure backup strategy by providing a hassle-free, short-term backup and restore method. A snapshot essentially creates a copy of the system data at a given point in time; when needed, you can use a snapshot to revert data to the state when the snapshot was taken. Snapshots can be easily created and restored from during normal business operation, without any downtimes or system disruption. Snapshots can also help you combat ransomware - in the event malware encrypts your files, snapshots can help save the day by allowing you to immediately recover those files to an earlier point in time, before the infection, effectively saving you the time and money to have to perform a full restore.

*Snapshot is only available on TeraStation 6000 devices.

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.

Boot Authentication

Boot Authentication

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, 3020, 5010 and 6000 series Network Attached Storage devices.

Front Panel Lock

Front Panel Lock - The front panel lock included on our TeraStation desktop products helps deter unauthorized users from removing the hard drives.

Ransomware solutions

Ransomware solutions - 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

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.

Kensington Security Slot

Kensington Security Slot - Many of Buffalo storage devices include a Kensington slot that securely connects your storage device to a particular location, preventing removal.
