EX2 to EX2 Remote Backups

Hello! I would like to sync or backup (which ever is more secure) my files between two EX2 units over the WAN. I have two questions:

  1. Will there be an encrypted connection between the EX2 units over the WAN?

  2. How do I secure my files at the remote location (strong password, disk encryption)?

I want the remote files to be very secure in case the unit is stolen. Security is my number one priority.

Thank you.


I haven’t try this yet. As a recommendation, please contact WD Support for direct assistance on this case.

WD contact info:

According to the user manual, encryption is available depending on the region.
See page 89 for detailed information about setting up the encryption.

Thank you. Yes, I did see that I can encrypt the data over the wire, but I
am also concerned if I can password protect my data on the remote server? I
am not sure that part of the equation.
