To further help businesses effectively manage today’s world of risk, we are proud to be associated with a network of high-tech media storage companies across the United States that offer their clients the incomparable protection of a FIRELOCK® fireproof modular vault.
Things like CD-ROMs, tape backups, and microfilm last only about five to eight years if they are not stored in the proper environmental conditions, and right now companies are legally obligated to keep their records for much longer than that.
Legislation such as Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA has attached large fines and even criminal penalties of up to 10 years in prison for failing to protect vital business documents, medical records, and digital media.
It doesn’t take a catastrophic fire to destroy computer media and other valued records; fluctuations in temperature or humidity, dust particles, magnetic fields, and UV light can be just as dangerous and ultimately as devastating.
The complete FIRELOCK® Fireproof Modular Vault assembly endures a grueling 5-hour test under the UL-72 ASTM-119 Time Temperature Curve. The FIRELOCK® vault greatly exceeded previously documented levels of protection.
Fires can begin in the most unexpected places at the most unexpected times. Are you certain your safe or concrete vault or storage room will protect your irreplaceable media and other valuables from fire, water, and smoke damage?
Facts and figures and research notes, among other critical data, are stored on film, CDs, magnetic disks, and paper and other delicate, flammable media. These must be protected against anticipated and unanticipated disasters.
Our client list comprises organizations of all shapes and sizes, from diverse industries ranging from hospitals and pharmaceutical companies to major financial houses and state and local government offices.
