After evaluating its IT system, Hand Picked Hotels, a collection of 17 bespoke country house heritage properties, dramatically improved its business efficiency by switching to a Buffalo TeraStation 5400 NAS device.

The TeraStation 5400 has helped Hand Picked Hotels to cut costs and increase efficiency. Employees are no longer required to maintain the system and IT support costs have been reduced. Having achieved three product awards, our TeraStation 5400, was definitely a winning choice for this prestigious hotel group.

Buffalo TeraStation range expanded

We’ve recently announced a series of exciting developments to our business-class storage devices, with the launch of our first Anti-Virus devices (TS5000V) and new TeraStation 7000 enterprise range.

TeraStation 5000 Anti-Virus


Buffalo TeraStation with Trend Micro Anti-Virus software

With Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) currently overhauling the IT landscape, our new TS5000V devices enable IT managers who must abide by strict corporate security rules to implement a NAS storage system that meets their security needs. Viruses from personal and external devices are prevented and only authenticated users can access the network, protecting corporate data.

The Anti-Virus devices provide SMBs and enterprises that are planning to strengthen their current security methods with a simple and reliable security system. The anti-virus function is validated on purchase and there is no need for extra configuration after setup, giving users a hassle-free advanced level of security.

The new 4TB TeraStation 5200 Anti-Virus, 8TB 5400 Anti-Virus and 16TB 5400 Rackmount Anti-Virus devices are pre-installed with Trend Micro’s Anti-Virus software, and are the only models of their kind to support real-time scanning. This assures businesses that their data is constantly monitored and, in the case of a virus, an alarm is immediately raised and infected files are automatically removed and saved to a protected folder to prevent the virus spreading.
