Protect your data from ransomware threats with Snapshots

Snapshots are an advanced backup method and are normally reserved for high-end business NAS. QNAP provides snapshots as standard for all NAS – including the TS-216G. Snapshots work by recording the current state of the system, allowing it to be restored back this state at any time - greatly helping in mitigating the threat of ransomware.

1. Back up PCs to your NAS
Always remember to back up! You should routinely (or automatically) back up files and data from your computer to your TS-216G.
2. Take snapshots within seconds
Instantly take snapshots to record the current state of your system and data. You can quickly restore files and data to a previously recorded state by selecting a snapshot version from a specific time point.
3. Back up snapshots
Multiply data protection by backing up snapshot files! Replicate snapshots in the TS-216G to a remote NAS (Snapshot Replica) and only copy the changes made. This helps save time & bandwidth, and can be run manually or on a scheduled basis.
4. Restore data using snapshots
Snapshot content can be quickly restored to a local NAS, or restored on a folder/file basis to a local/remote NAS or cloud storage. You can also conveniently view and restore snapshots from the client side.

Protect your data from malware

The TS-216G provides powerful security measures including firewall, VPN, Security Center, and more to help keep your data and NAS system safe and sound.



Supports IPv6, firewall access lists, and GeoIP filtering to restrict access based on geographical locations for higher NAS network security.

QVPN Service

QVPN Service

Supports creating a VPN client, using TS-216G as a VPN server, and WireGuard® VPN service with an easy-to-use interface for setting up a secure connection.

Security Center

Security Center

A security portal for the TS-216G that proactively detects NAS status, unusual file activity and potential security threats – offering instant protective measures against vulnerabilities to safeguard your system and data.

Sync across multiple devices

You can access your files uploaded to the TS-216G with all your laptops, tablets and phones, and enjoy the immediate synchronization. It’s also useful to improve productivity of workgroup collaboration!

Home and workplace surveillance made easy

The TS-216G can perform as a professional surveillance system for your home and office security – simply install the easy-to-use QVR Elite, a subscription-based smart surveillance software, along with its compatible 8,000+ cameras.
