ZERO1’s building has a state-of-the art electronic media vault for your off-site media storage needs. It has a 4-hour fire rating and is equipped with a dedicated pre-active fire protection system and monitored electronic key-card entry. The fire protection system allows for more than one extinguish should the fire re-ignite and will only extinguish in the specific hazardous area. When there is no longer detection of smoke or fire, it shuts down. Temperature in the vault is kept at a constant 68-degrees with 50% humidity by dedicated HVAC equipment.

We’ve been HERE for you. Since 1988.

Choose a Local Company that you have Trusted for Almost 30 years!

ZERO1 Data Protection is not a start up company…. We are a subsidiary of Chicago Records Management, Inc. – a data management company started back in 1988.

ZERO1 is also more than a website. We have multiple physical locations, including a large warehouse containing a fire rated tape vault, a fleet of delivery vans to support your tape rotations, a presence in a major Tier III+ Data Center in Oakbrook, IL, and local staff to support all of it.

The focus of ZERO1 is to provide local service and support to Chicagoland organizations. When you need assistance, you will talk to people living in your area in your timezone – not an offshore call center.
