It is often thought that the era of tapes is far behind us. However, nothing seems less true. A data tape remain an unprecedentedly safe storage medium, of very high quality. Combined with the increasing use of the cloud, the demand for offline data storage is increasing rapidly. Especially with the increase in online security vulnerabilities, cybercrime, NSA spying practices and uncertainties surrounding national data security laws, more and more companies are seeking that extra bit of security. Offline data storage offers a great degree of certainty. On the basis of data classification, companies often choose a mix of storage mediums.

What happens if there is no online connection? With TeamDrive, you have various options for storing and synchronizing data offline, i. This brings with it important advantages. On the one hand, it protects the data from external intervention and makes the data backup even more effective during a failure of the IT infrastructure in the company or the router failure at home. You can access all data in the TeamDrive Spaces at any time once they have been synchronised. Since a local copy of the data is always created, it is always available for processing, regardless of the online status. The data is then synchronised as soon as there is an Internet connection and you start TeamDrive. This usage scenario is useful if very sensitive data is stored on a particular computer. Then you can use TeamDrive as a backup solution. The data is therefore only transmitted securely end-to-end when encryption is required.
