Share Article

Nobody knows exactly how many USB Flash drives are lost, stolen or left plugged into someone else’s computer every year. But they are a notoriously unsafe way to store confidential data. http://www.einsurance.com has teamed up with My Vault (R), a top-tier secure online safe deposit storage service, to promote a safer, more secure way to store and retrieve select private digital assets. Einsurance.com urges clients who are currently storing sensitive information such as insurance policies and insurance applications on USB Flash drives to take advantage of the My Vault(R) “exflasher” 50% discount campaign and store their insurance documents on My Vault (R). The discount is part of My Vault’s recently launched “Flashing Hurts” website that takes an attention-grabbing look at the risky lure of Flash drives and shows how their loss and subsequent data breach affects the privacy of millions.

The Flashing Hurts Campaign for My Vault

"Your insurance documents should be treated with the same concerns for security as your tax returns."
-- Eric Powers

An unbelievable number of otherwise savvy people continue to rely on portable Flash drives to store digital data. Thumb drives are fine for the average PowerPoint presentation or tuna casserole recipe, but not so much for sensitive data or vital documents, according to Eric Powers, CIO of EINSURE Services, Inc., the Chicago-based parent company of http://www.Einsurance.com, an online resource that provides competitive quotes for a variety of insurance products.

“Health insurance documents, for example, often contain highly confidential data including your social security number," said Powes. "Do you really want to risk storing that on something that can be so easily misplaced or stolen? Once that data is breached, the consequences can be disastrous.” That is why his company is recommending that their clients store their insurance policies and applications on My Vault(R), an encrypted online digital safe deposit box service.

“It’s amazing that people purchase insurance but then do nothing to ensure the safekeeping of their insurance documents. Most people just toss that stuff in a drawer. You wouldn’t do that with your tax returns. Secure storage is really the final step in the insurance process and My Vault(R) provides the ideal solution.”

According to Powers, My Vault offers the security and privacy of a bank safe deposit box without the trip to the bank. “If your house burns down at 3 a.m., the bank isn’t going to open up for you. Worse, if you’re hospitalized, your family may have no idea where you keep important documents. With My Vault, all that’s needed is an Internet connection to access your insurance policies and other vital papers.”

Powers added that My Vault also allows users to manage files and selectively share information with others. “With My Vault you have the ability to organize, sort, label and tag stored files. You also have folder-and-file-level-deep deadbolt security. You can securely send select files and folders for pick-up to others of your choosing using My Vault’s link-share functionality. You can even set link passwords and link-share expiration dates. You can’t do that with a Flash drive. And if you’re commitment adverse, you’ll be happy to hear there are no long-term contracts to sign,” Powers said.

“Storage starts as low as $1.99 per month. It’s even less for the first 5,000 users who sign up for a new account at http://www.MyVaultStorage.com and enter the code “exflasher”. As part of My Vault’s Flashing Hurts campaign, they’ll receive 50% off for five months.”

To get the discount on 2GB, 5GB, 10GB or 25GB storage, visit http://www.MyVaultStorage.com, sign up for a new account and enter the promo code “exflasher” at registration. The promotion begins August 1, 2011 at 12 a.m. MST and ends September 30, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. MST. Usage of the discount mandates compliance with the My Vault Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.
