Benefits of Offsite Media Storage

Offside media storage benefit 1


When air gapping is set up and managed properly, it’s virtually impossible for hackers to remotely access your information.

Offside media storage benefit 2


We follow the stringent guidelines of HIPAA, SSAE18, and other regulations to keep firmly in compliance and to keep your data as secure, defended, and protected as possible.

Offside media storage benefit 3


This is the plan for managing local disasters that wipe out multiple copies of data in the same location — so your organization can continue to function with as little disruption as possible.

There’s more than one way to make an air gap

If magnetic tape isn’t right for your business, you can create an air gap with secure, off-site storage of several media types, including:

  • Hard drives
  • Flash memory storage (solid-state drive, USB, memory cards)
  • Disk drives
  • Optical disc drive (DVD and CD)
  • Laptops and tablets
  • Servers

Follow the 3-2-1 Rule of Backups


Keep at least three copies of your data, including the original and two or more backups.


Keep your backup data on two different storage types to reduce the chances of failure. If you have data stored on an internal hard drive, make sure you have another copy in a secondary storage type, like magnetic tape.


Keep at least one backup copy off-site. Local disasters can wipe out multiple copies when both are stored in the same location. Keep a third copy in a secure, offsite location — unplugged. In other words, create an air gap.
