Cloud & Productivity
The majority of people now switch between multiple devices every day, resulting in a dramatic increase in the popularity of cloud storage. Sometimes our entire productive life - working reports, notes, references - relies on the cloud, meaning we need a cost-efficient, high-capacity yet absolutely private cloud solution more than ever. Synology offers all of these, and more.
Data loss is a real danger, no matter what storage device you use. Important files - like your wedding photos or critical work documents - deserve a great backup strategy to protect against unexpected hardware failure, natural disasters, or simple accidental deletion. Let DSM help with robust and flexible backup solutions.
A central entertainment hub for better sharing
Serving as your personal entertainment hub, Synology DiskStation not only allows you to easily organize all the photos, videos, and music, but also share them with your family or friends effortlessly. With TV streaming support and the new mobile apps, DSM provides you the best way to enjoy a richer multimedia experience.
A powerful operating system requires powerful controls, especially when shared among multiple users. DSM helps you configure, maintain, and monitor your NAS in a meticulous manner - and it doesn't take an IT professional to figure out how.
With modern hardware, having a dedicated machine for each specific task rapidly becomes an expensive and inefficient solution. DSM's modular system allows you to install comprehensive applications and services on your DiskStation, whenever you need them. In addition, it’s possible to install software from third-party sources or even create your own.
Both hardware failure and malicious attacks from the Internet can disrupt access to critical digital assets. In businesses where maintaining 24/7 service is paramount, DSM offers advanced high availability and security measures to safeguard you from unexpected server disruption and data loss.

Also, Cloud Sync now offers one-way sync options, making things easier when backing up data to a public cloud or vice versa, while data encryption guarantees files sent to the public cloud remain for your eyes only.

New security features
Protecting your data from prying eyes
Network and system security is an incredibly complicated topic, so Synology is devoted to creating a secure environment for you to safely store and share data, without worrying about it falling into the wrong hands.
SMB 3 encryption for secure transmissions
Support for SMB 3 encryption allows your DiskStation to secure file transfers to Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 or later, reducing the possibility of tampering and eavesdropping when data moves across your company's network. Protect your sensitive information without installing or spending resources on extraneous third-party encryption solutions.
