Seagate (NASDAQ: STX) today announced three additional BlackArmor ® product offerings: the BlackArmor ® NAS 220 storage server, the BlackArmor ® WS 110 external drive workstation and the BlackArmor ® PS 110 portable drive. Joining the existing network attached storage line up – the BlackArmor ® NAS 440 and BlackArmor ® NAS 420 storage servers – these new solutions share the same suite of robust backup applications for business professionals and home office use.
“In challenging economic conditions, small businesses are demanding that high-quality, integrated, reliable IT solutions be delivered in economical packages,” said Ben Woo, vice president, Enterprise Storage Systems Research, IDC. “Providing the flexibility to choose from an array of solutions that support current needs and provide a strategic growth path with minimal additional investment will be very appealing to this market segment.”
Security, Accessibility and Peace of Mind
With features like automated full-system backup and SafetyDrill ™ software , a bare metal recovery feature, the BlackArmor family of storage solutions delivers enhanced data protection. Since BlackArmor external drives automatically create an exact copy of everything on your PC, SafetyDrill software is ready to restore your entire system if a data disaster such as a virus attack, hardware failure, or PC crash were to occur. SafetyDrill software comes preloaded on all BlackArmor products and does not require any additional installation. For increased data protection of backed-up files, the software also features an AES 256-bit government-grade encryption.
