Secure Storage / Retrieval

Our secure storage and retrieval solutions strike the optimal balance between security, accessibility and cost, offering accredited UK infrastructure and secure network management with flexible monthly billing.

ARO’s secure document storage and retrieval solutions leverage UK datacentre storage facilities and secure network retrieval to deliver on-premise levels of access control and security, with the redundancy, flexibility and scalability of our cloud platform.

The capacity challenge

On-site secure data storage can be a drain on resources, taking up space, management time and capital investment.

With ever-growing volumes of data, increasing cyber threats and proliferating data protection and data privacy laws, secure record storage has become central to secure information management strategies. Meanwhile, business users rely on flexibility, ease of access and secure data retrieval.

Which is why most businesses are moving some or all of their data storage off-premise.

Secure data storage is storing digital information in a way that protects it from unauthorised access, alteration, or loss.

Secure data storage protects sensitive information and prevents unauthorised disclosure or tampering. Due to its level of security, data loss from security breaches, accidental deletions, or system failures are also minimised, helping businesses comply to data protection regulations and industry standards.

Secure data storage implements various security mechanisms such as encryption, access controls, regular backups, secure protocols and physical security. All these features combined create a safe and secure environment to store sensitive information.

Secure data retrieval is the process of accessing stored information in a way that maintains the established security measures. This involves retrieving data while preserving its confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

Data can usually be retrieved through methods such as authentication, application interfaces, and access controls. For example, role-based access controls help to define permissions and restrictions, allowing only authorised users to retrieve specific data based on their roles. Authentication can also be proven via usernames, passwords, or multi-factor authentication.
