Lets face it. Email has taken over in a world where everyone has an electronic device at their fingertips.
It is estimated that there will be close to 5.6 billion people using emails by the end of this decade alone!
Now, the eternal question:
Can you afford to risk losing your emails as a result of you being locked out of your own account or your email account being compromised or hacked into by unauthorized users?
We live in age where we have come to this comfort zone of trusting the tech companies with our most valuable and private data thinking that our data and privacy are safe in the hands of these corporations. We just assume or take this for granted. We rely on their assurances and cryptic techie sounding words that very few people understand. We believe it because it all sounds “high tech” and very reassuring. We really do not know for sure what really happens to our data or how they are being handled or their location. They are on the cloud, somewhere! But, in recent times we are now becoming very aware of the fact that there are frequent data and security breaches happening at these tech giants despite their elaborate measures to safeguard their networks and the safety of our data.
We, at Tecbasics are not disputing the technology or the safety features or the good intention of tech companies to safeguard your data privacy and security. But we do however believe that the you should not blindly rely on outside companies when it comes to your valuable data like emails. Given the frequent data and privacy breaches and revelations about accounts being illegally accessed or compromised or locked out, it only makes sense to backup your valuable data to your private home network and avoid losing it on the cloud due to any kind of cyber attach or mishap.
Let's not forget the pains of two-step authentication! You have your mobile phone associated as one of the authenticating devices. One day you lose your phone or move and change your phone number and forget to or unable to update your email account and voila! You are locked out! You will be directed through a "secondary protocol" - fill out the account recovery forms, prove to the world that it is really you. Meanwhile, what about your emails??
This is precisely why we built this device - to help you gain control of your data in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
The Mail Backup Unit is a standalone mail archiving device that does not need your intervention or supervision other than setting it up or if it needs your attention. The device may be accessed by other devices like a PC, laptop, mobile or tablet within your home network making the device a central source of archive for all your family's email as against carrying a backup on a single device like a laptop.
We built the mail backup software application from ground up to keep it downright simple and user friendly. We built and configured the Mail Backup Unit to readily hook up into your home network and be operational within minutes without requiring any elaborate configuration from you. Just plug it, set it up and forget it! The Mail Backup Unit will automatically back up your emails at the designated time that you setup. The device is protected by a built-in firewall that prevents any unauthorized access. The Mail Backup Unit comes with 128GB of space, so there is plenty of space to back up your emails.
The Mail Backup Unit supports the following top email providers:
Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, AOL, Zoho and Mail.com.
The Mail Backup Unit securely connects to these providers using the industry standard IMAP over SSL protocol (IMPAS) to back up your emails safely and securely.
Watch the video on top of this page to see how easy it is to setup and use your Mail Backup Unit.
The device is housed in an well designed compact aluminum case to ensure the dissipation of heat, and it hooks up to your network via WiFi and occupies a tiny space on your shelf! The Mail Backup Unit is shipped with charger cable and a network cable and comes with standard 1 year parts and labor warranty.
We have currently prototyped the unit with fully functional software and tested the connectivity and the actual mail backup with the email platforms. Once we acquire the required funding we intend to roll this into production.
