The Pogoplug is an external piece of hardware that connects to external USB hard drives. In less than 60 seconds, the Pogoplug can be connected and service can be activated so advisors can access all files and data on the USB hard drives through a web browser. Files from the hard drive pass through Pogoplug servers and are fully encrypted and are transferred through the HTTPS protocol. No copies of the files are ever kept on the Pogoplug servers.
So this device, at a cost of just $129.99 on Amazon.com, allows advisors to build their own storage cloud. So any piece of data, whether it be a PDF, Word document, video, or podcast, can be accessed remotely through the Pogoplug service.
Pogoplug's website is filled with informative short videos on how the device works, technical specifications, and examples of techniques to get the most out of the device.
