Data protection as we know it mainly looks at aspects such as physical security and logical security through measures such as encryption, secure locks, access controls and so on. Looking from a Business Continuity Planning spectrum this is only one aspect of data protection. What about issues caused by natural disasters such as fire, floods, earthquakes etc. For the SOHO user there are quite a few solutions out there that provide security mechanisms such as encryption, secure locks as well as access controls; however there are hardly any products out there that look into problems caused by natural causes. No matter how good an encryption mechanism is or how well a device is secured from theft, damages caused to storage devices by fire or water can cause irreparable damage to your data as well as the device.
Today we bring to you a solution from the gufys at ioSafe.com known as the ioSafe Solo External Hard Drive. The ioSafe Solo External Hard Drive is supposed to be Fireproof to 1550° F for ½ hour and Waterproof upto 10 feet of fresh water or salt water for 3 full days. This is quite a remarkable achievement and I am yet to see any competing product that offers the same amount of features for a very afforble price. Lets first dive in and see the list of features the ioSafe Solo External Hard Drive offers.
This rugged USB hard drive makes a great add-on to most business laptops for greater storage space.
