for your company data

Anyone who has experienced the dismay of discovering that an archive has become unreadable, or that video surveillance system recordings are damaged and unusable, recognizes the importance and necessity of having a data backup and a disaster recovery plan.

At times, nothing is more valuable than the ability to recover your data, whether it is contained in data storage, magnetic tapes or hard drives.

A proper business risk analysis and management must take into account a disaster recovery plan that includes a remote backup system or off-site tape vaulting service in a delocalized location (at a reasonable distance in order to avoid disastrous events affecting both sites) in relation to the production site.

Data Storage Security is your ideal partner for protecting business and corporate data in accordance with the strictest risk management policies.



should you keep and where should they be stored?

Data Storage Security’s Media Off-site Storage service responds in a timely manner to the requirements defined in international best practices on disaster recovery and long-term retention, according to the 3-2-1 rule, which became famous thanks to Peter Krogh, an American publisher known primarily for his work in the field of digital asset management.

The 3-2-1 rule divides people into those who have already experienced the loss of digital data and those who will experience it in the future.

To prevent this scenario, you should organize the backup of your data according to this policy:

• Create at least 3 copies of the data.

• Store copies on at least 2 different media.

• Store at least 1 backup copy off-site.

Media Off-Site Storage:

a 360-degree service

Data Storage Security works closely with its customers to set up the Media Off-Site Storage service, starting from the collection of magnetic media containing data to be stored, transporting them safely and confidentially to armoured vaults, and returning the magnetic media containing “expired” data on the dates stipulated by the customer.

Data Storage Security’s vaults are constantly monitored using video surveillance, while access is authorized only to qualified personnel with swipe cards. An active climate control system eliminates temperature changes and humidity peaks, ensuring optimal conditions for the long-term storage of magnetic media. All storage rooms are equipped with an inert gas fire-fighting system to deal with fires without making any archived documents, tapes or cassettes wet, which would damage them irreparably.


has ensured Data Storage Security’s reputation as the most reliable remote backup company in Italy.

Data Storage Security has been operating in the data recovery sector since 1983, and now has over 300 customers, collecting and delivering over 50,000 boxes containing backup tapes each year, which are stored in its own storage rooms.

The vehicles used are exclusively dedicated to the transport of digital media and paper archives. They are equipped with active and passive security tools capable of ensuring data protection from the moment of collection at the customer’s location until delivery to Data Storage Security’s vault.
