Fire safes for data very different to paper ones !

by | Feb 18, 2014 | General News

I could write much about fire safes for data but I will try and keep it short, but I am happy to take calls or emails about them. I saw my first fire safe for data almost 34 years ago. It was big, real big and only big institutions bought them as they were the only ones that needed to protect the huge tapes from fire. Data safes or data cabinets are effectively high grade document or record protection cabinets. Paper starts to char at around 150 Celsius but data which includes tape drives, hard drives, jump sticks, usb sticks, DVD’s etc. However 50 -60 degrees is the temperature that data mediums start being affected by heat so if you were to put your backup in the fire resistant filing cabinet and there was a fire the paper records would be okay but the backups useless.

There are so many ways to back up data but having a up to date data copy in your possession is a nice feeling and we have become a bit complacent with all our records and if there is a fire any backup is better than no back up. Around 70% of all businesses that have a fire go under. We were affected by the 2011 Brisbane floods and I assure you that was easy (even though we had 4 meters of water through our workshop) compared to the speed and destruction that a fire will do. Data safes come in many sizes but we find only 2 sizes are popular. A five litre data safe will fit an enormous amount of household records such as DVD’s hard drives and USB sticks, the larger 50 litre data safe is more popular with small to medium businesses.

Data safe are NOT designed to protect the contents from criminals armed with pry bars and hammers and your average criminal isn’t generally after data backups because they can easily be protected by password encryption. A criminal who was after the contents of a data safe for blackmail or for commercial espionage is a different matter and whilst rare we can help with this specific risk. For more info simply call 1300 556500 or send an email from the side of this page.

I called KGB security to get a quote on a safe for my business. Being an... expensive purchase I had done some research on the cost beforehand. During the call I simply asked the male staff member if they price matched. I received a sharp, curt reply that I should buy the safe elsewhere and was hung up on. In all, the phone call lasted about 1-2mins. Does that warrant this sort of treatment of potential customers?read more

I would HIGHLY recommend KGB Security. We have used them twice (so far) and... BOTH times have been a pleasure. They are extremely helpful, very professional and went above and beyond to ensure our matters were dealt with promptly. They are super friendly, easy to talk to and easily talk through steps over the phone. Their expertise was greatly appreciated!read more

Called KGB security about my heavy timber pivot door, to install a door damper... to stop it from slamming. Kel asked me to send photos of the door mechanism. He called back shortly thereafter to advise me that we have a door damper already, so no need to waste money for one. He taught me how to adjust the damper - 'tramsom closer'. It worked! My door doesn't slam any more. It only took me a few minutes and a screwdriver. He saved me lots of money. They are the most ethical and professional locksmith. I'm very grateful.read more

I cannot speak highly enough about this company!I have an old fireproof... cabinet that I was concerned about and gave KGB a call for some professional advice.Not only did I get information on the issue at hand, but I even got the contact number for someone that worked at the now long deceased company who could give me more detailed information.I would recommend them for anything to do with safes, cabinets or anything to do with security!read more
