A NAS Drive offers a secure, reliable way to store your data in a high-capacity storage solution.
Ideal for collaborative work, NAS drives give you the opportunity to create your own server and share files with those you trust. By connecting your NAS drive to your network, multiple users can share the drive, all being able to access files and share information with each other.
Acting as a safer alternative to taking out confidential files with you through physical copies or on a memory stick, NAS Drives offer a secure way to access your files from outside the office.
Being a device that can be connected to wirelessly, NAS Drives can be stored in a different location to your other equipment. This is the perfect solution to businesses with work from home employees or employees that need to travel, as they will be able to access the network from any location.
