ioSafe External Hard Drives

Safeguarding data is essential for businesses to maintain operations and security measures. Installing an ioSafe® external hard drive ensures that the data is backed up as well as protected from theft, accidents, and forces of nature. Advanced features make these drives an ideal addition to a workplace, whether it's an office with a few employees or a large corporation with advanced IT departments. Staples® carries several drives from ioSafe and other reputable brands to offer peace of mind.

Wide Array of Features Improves Efficiency
Most drives from ioSafe work with a USB 3.0 interface, which offers universal compatibility across devices with built-in ports. This ensures quick transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbps. Some have backward compatibility for use with USB 2.0 ports, which offer a transfer speed of up to 480Mbps. Select models allow you to backup files to your personal cloud to share with others who have permission and to have the data in more than one place for added security.

Hardy Exterior Protects ioSafe External Hard Drives
One of the main features each ioSafe external hard drive has is a rugged exterior that's designed to withstand emergency situations such as fire, water, and chemical exposure. Desktop models undergo rigorous testing to conform to ASTM E-119 certification, which renders them safe in temperatures of up to 1550 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. Some models, such as the ioSafe SoloPro, have a hydrosafe body that safeguards data against fresh and saltwater, 10 feet deep for 72 hours in the event of a flood. Those with Chemsafe certification can withstand immersion in chemicals such as aircraft and diesel fuel, oils, and hydraulic fluids.

What Type of Theft-Proof Features Does an ioSafe External Hard Drive Have?
As they're designed to eliminate theft and destruction, the drives come with a wide array of security measures. Most models have a Kensington security slot which lets you tether the unit to a desk, wall, or table. Some come with a floor mount so you can bolt it to the floor to reduce the chance of physical theft.

Do ioSafe Solo and SoloPro Models Come With Data Recovery Services?
Yes. While most units come with a one-time recovery free of charge, you can opt to pay for the service through the company to maintain protection on your data for as long as you desire. Additionally, ioSafe offers financial reimbursement for data recovery that's required when forensic evidence is at risk.

What Operating Systems Do ioSafe Drives Work With?
Shoppers can find a solution for nearly any type of operating system, whether it's Windows, Mac, or Linux. Additionally, they work with mobile devices that utilize iOS and Android operating systems to offer protection for smartphones and tablets. Each drive has its own system requirements so it's important to read the specs prior to purchasing to ensure optimum performance.

Does ioSafe Make Portable External Hard Drives?
Yes. If you're always on the go, it's necessary to have information readily available. Portable models have a crush-resistant metal exterior in a lightweight package which makes them ideal for traveling. They fit in small compartments for added convenience and offer the same features that desktop versions do in a smaller model.
