Off-Site Data Storage & Hosting

As our reliance on computers and electronically generated data grows, our vulnerability to IT disasters escalates.

The scope and scale of such disasters are constantly evolving.  Many companies have already experienced power surges, theft, hard drive crashes, data corruption, computer viruses, sabotage, natural disasters, espionage / hacking and human error to name a few. Docufile provides a comprehensive solution in a dedicated and high-spec off-site storage Vault facility.
