This NAS server comes embedded with the free McAfee antivirus software, to help protect your data. You can schedule the McAfee antivirus to scan all your vital data at certain intervals of time to protect your NAS from various threats.
The N7510 comes preinstalled with the Thecus OS 5.0 that allows you to access additional functionalities. Data Burn and Data Guard are 2 of these functions. With Data Burn, you can back-up your critical data by burning the content onto a CD, DVD, or Blu-ray disk. This can be achieved by plugging a disk burner to your NAS via the available USB ports.
The Thecus OS 5.0 also supports Data Guard, a total backup solution. It enables you to take a backup of your data on both local and remote machines. Data is usually backed up across RAID volumes, external USB drives, and eSATA. In addition, Data Guard is used to sync data across the network to other NAS and servers. More importantly, Thecus Data Guard is the total backup solution, which makes managing NAS user-friendly and convenient. Additionally, Thecus also provides a cloud back-up solution to keep your data safe.
