Security and Data Protection
Security and data protection refers to the measures taken to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the data stored on the Seagate Backup Plus Portable 2TB USB External Hard Drive (STDR2000101).
The hard drive offers a variety of options for securing and protecting data, including encryption options for data protection, password protection, and access controls. Encryption is the process of converting plaintext data into a coded format that can only be accessed by authorized parties. The hard drive supports software-based encryption options like AES-256 bit which makes it more secure and difficult to be hacked.
In addition to software-based encryption, the hard drive also has a hardware-based encryption option, which encrypts the data at the hardware level, and adds an extra layer of security.
Users can also protect their data by setting a password on the hard drive, which will be prompted for whenever the device is connected to a computer. This feature ensures that only authorized users can access the data stored on the hard drive.
Regular maintenance and monitoring is also important for security and data protection. This includes checking for and installing software updates, running regular backups, and monitoring the hard drive for unusual activity.
It's also important to protect the hard drive from physical damage, such as drops, extreme temperatures, and exposure to moisture or dust. Users should handle the drive with care and store it in a safe and protected location when not in use.
In case of data loss, the hard drive also offers data recovery options such as built-in backup software, cloud storage integration, and the ability to recover lost files using Seagate's data recovery services.

Any IT system manager should have at least one external disk drive where all critical data are backed up. It is a good practice to have both on-site and off-site data backup systems apart from the cloud backup. External hard drives offer a quick and reliable data backup and restore solution after disasters or during emergencies. They are also portable, meaning you can carry them with you wherever you go.
High Data Storage Capacity
The use of external hard drives to backup and restore data has constantly been increasing. That is because of the technological advancement that has resulted in a price reduction of these media storage devices. Currently, you can buy a 2TB USB 3.0 external hard drive for a few dollars. The prices are even expected to fall further in the coming years. And soon, everyone will be using an external HDD for data storage.
Plug and Play System
An external disk drive has been made easy to use. You do not need any IT experience to use them in your system. Whether you are running an extensive data center or just need a backup system for your personal data, you can easily use them without training. You just plug them into your system through the USB port and begin data transfer. No drivers or configurations are needed to integrate an external hard drive into your computer system.
Fast and Reliable
