Unlike some storage companies that look at a hard drive in a closet
as adequate technology for their customers, The Archive believes
in real physical security. The vault is at the core of what we do.
With over 14,000 cubic feet of storage space, The Archive’s facilities
are the largest in the Northeast and among the five largest true
data vaults in the world. Like every aspect of The Archive, each
vault is designed from the ground up with the protection of your
data as the primary goal. Our cutting-edge Firelock vault system
is rated by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) as a
“Class 125-two hour” vault. These Firelock vaults are able to maintain
an interior temperature below 125 degrees Fahrenheit for a period
of two hours with external temperatures up to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
With most source codes stored on electronic, magnetic or optical
media, temperature and humidity control is absolutely critical.
Many of these media often fail or disintegrate at fairly low relative
temperatures. We control and monitor the environmental conditions
of our vaults to ensure the integrity and longevity of your data.
After all, as your source code escrow agent, it is our duty to keep
your data safe and reliable for years to come. That’s why we use
the very latest protection technologies.
Take fire protection for instance. Storage companies claiming fire
protection often use concrete or even gypsum- board vaults. The
latter offer no true fire resistance, while a vault constructed
of concrete will fail to provide a steam and vapor-proof environment
and typically cannot provide temperature resistance for more than
30 minutes. The proprietary ceramic materials that make up our Firelock
vaults are not susceptible to vapor and steam generation and provide
the highest level of fire resistance.
Complementing the vaults are our storage and media management systems:
specially designed containers that provide extra security for your
materials both in transit and in storage. Every container is bar-coded,
assuring accurate tracking and monitoring of every item in the vault.
Optional indexing and monitoring services are also available. Online
updates to vault materials are time and date stamped automatically.
Remote access to records enables you to review an index of your
materials from anywhere in the world, as well as schedule pickups,
categorize and describe your data and request reports.
The Archive’s security technology, such as biometric access control
and coded-key technology, allows you to restrict and prioritize
access to your vault materials. Biometrics access control is an
identification system that uses a retinal scanner to positively
ID the person requesting access to your materials. Access is only
granted to those people you assign. The Archive secures, monitors
and records all entrances to each vault with our experienced staff
and closed circuit television.
Our vault services are available to all customers, regardless of
their organization's size.
