    While it is possible to perform data encryption using archival software, this typically makes backups take longer or decreases the performance of the client workstation. Where possible, opt for NAS with on-board encryption support as it can perform encryption at much faster speeds, especially so if the device sports hardware-assisted encryption. Encryption is a robust defense against vendors or business partners simply walking away with one of the HDDs.

The threat of data loss is a key concern for IT managers. One simple and time-honed method of ensuring the integrity of business-critical data is to make sure it is regularly backed up. Companies not keen on a cloud-based replication service can employ a network attached storage (NAS) device, but how does one correctly identify the best features for their organization? In this slideshow, Paul Mah highlights the features he considers to be the most important.
