If you rely on the data stored on your Computer to operate a business or you use a Computer at Home to store your precious photos, that ever increasing music collection or any other type of data and you can't risk losing it you must backup new data every day and secure it in a the Australian designed and manufactured, since 1993, Data Backup Safe.
Data loss via viruses, software problems, power failures and theft are not the only reasons you need to backup your data.
The fact is the hard drive in your Computer / Laptop / Tablet / iPad / Smart Phone will eventually fail and generally without warning. If you do not have a backed up copy of your data you will lose countless days or even weeks trying to recover your data and if you own a business, in severe cases you may lose your business and probably placed into Bankruptcy.
Can you afford not to have a data backup strategy in place to backup your data on a regular basis ?
Think about it...
If a business does not have records of who owes them money how can they collect what is owning to them.
Some very disturbing statistics.
Statistics suggest about 88% of people who use a computer in their business do not backup their new and changed data at the end of each working day and about 93% of people who use a computer for personal use at home NEVER backup their data.
Its hard to believe the news could be worse but statistics also suggest 53% of businesses and personal computer users that do backup their data leave their back-up drive on the desk next to their Computer or in an un-locked drawer under the desk. This is foolish but countless numbers of people do. ARE YOU ONE OF THESE PEOPLE...
If you are...
You need the High Security, Relocatable, Light-Weight but Virtually Indestructible Australian designed, manufactured, patented and SCEC Endorsed Data Backup Safe.
Because up until 1993 the only option to secure backed up data securely was in a Metal Safe specifically made for data as a normal Metal Safe can cause magnetism inside the Safe which in turn will destroy your data.
Data Backup Safe is made from Lexan Polycarbonate and designed in two parts:
Detailed information throughout this Web Site.
In the early 1990's a couple of thousand man hours was invested in the design, material selection, manufacturing techniques and testing of the Data Backup Safe. In 1993 after nearly 3 years of research and development the Australia designed and manufactured Data Backup Safe became available for sale.
Lexan is also used to manufacture:
Install the Docking Station to almost any flat surface on any angle even up side down eg. to the floor under a bed then slide the Data Backup Safe in and lock it with the supplied Abloy Classic or Abloy PROTEC Key. More details in number 5 below.
The Data Backup Safe can be installed in a:
The Docking Station is easily installed to almost any flat surface and at any angle, even upside down, using screws, bolts or ACRYLIC (water based) glue into which the Data Backup Safe slides in and locks with the supplied High Security Abloy Classic Key or Abloy PROTEC Key. Once locked the Data Backup Safe conceals all fastenings used to install the Docking Station eg. screws or bolts.
The lid on the Data Backup Safe locks in or out of the Docking Station with the supplied High Security Abloy Key. This allows the Data Backup Safe to be taken from one location to another without the contents being exposed.
Slide the Data Backup Safe out of one Docking Station then lock the lid then take the Data Backup Safe to another previously installed Docking Station slide it in and lock it with the supplied High Security Abloy Classic Key or Abloy PROTEC Key.
Fitted to the back of the Abloy Classic Lock or Abloy PROTEC Lock inside the Data Backup Safe (also referred to as the mk2 Hide AWay Safe) is a customised heavy duty cam. When the Data Backup Safe Lid is closed and the High Security Abloy Key is turned 180 degrees the cam secures the lid to the Data Backup Safe through a specially designed slot in the lid.
Abloy Classic 6mm Left Hand Security Lock includes a customised heavy duty cam and two Nickel Silver Abloy Classic Keys. It has a possible 33 million different key combinations, it cannot be drilled and is virtually pick proof. Used for individually keyed safes. Note: To our knowledge it has never been picked since it was first sold in 1908.
Abloy PROTEC (Ultra) High Security Lock includes a customised heavy duty cam and two Nickel Silver Abloy PROTEC Keys. It has a possible 1.97 billion different key combinations, it cannot be drilled and is mechanically impossible to pick. It is the World’s First Un-Pickable Lock. Used for keyed alike and individually keyed safes or is an exceptional (cost effective) Master Key System, including Master, Grand Master and Grand Grand Master Keys.
The Data Backup Safe will hold up to 52 CD's or DVD's (this is based on placing each CD / DVD in a clear plastic cover when secured in the Data Backup Safe). Will also secure any other type of backup storage device eg. tapes, up to six 2.5 inch external hard drives.
That is a massive amount of backed up data, enough space for many years of backed up data even for a medium sized business.
The Data Backup Safe is part of the Hide Away Safe range of High Security, Light-Weight, Virtually Indestructible safes, there are two sizes and a number of versions. The Data Backup Safe is the smaller (also referred to as mk2 Hide Away Safe) and the larger mk3 Hide Away Safe is five time the size of the mk2 Hide Away Safe.
Statistics suggest a Computer or Laptop has about 2000 hours of data added to it every year. Multiply that by your hourly rate and the dollars start to add up. Just imaging what would happen if your Computer or Laptop was stolen or the Hard Drive was damaged and you did not have a backup of your Hard Drive. I know for a fact if that happened to me I would be out of business the next day and bankrupt not long after that.
My companies data like most other companies data is a valuable business asset that needs serious consideration and planning for a backup procedure eg. when will you backup your data hourly, daily or weekly.
Then a decision has to be made where to keep your backed up data. About the only choice you have is, an expensive metal Data Safe which are very heavy, cannot be hidden and is 100% not portable eg. cannot be removed by one person, secured in a Vehicle and then taken to another location and secured in seconds as you can with the Data Backup Safe.
