B&L Associates, Inc. develops Vertices® Hard Disk Drive Tracking module to provide comprehensive documentation for federal, industry and legal compliance regarding the destruction of data and hard disk drives.

[The Vertices HDD Tracker module] provides instant access to destruction certificates and a comprehensive paper trail for audits.

A recent MIT study showed that of 158 used hard drives bought online—many of which originally belonged to banks and law firms—over 90% of them had sensitive, recoverable information.

Ensuring the proper destruction of sensitive data is critical to regulatory compliance as well as a company’s reputation. The Vertices Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Tracker module from B&L Associates, Inc. not only provides the peace of mind of knowing when data was destroyed, but it also provides instant access to destruction certificates and a comprehensive paper trail for audits.

“Many of our clients in the financial and healthcare sectors needed an easy way to comply with government and industry regulations concerning the security of data on decommissioned hard disk drives,” said Michael Kramer, VP Sales and Marketing at B&L Associates. “The Vertices HDD Tracker module provides this type of documented, cradle-to-grave data security for our customers.”

With the Vertices HDD Tracker module, every movement of an organization's hard disk drives—from inception to destruction—can be tracked and documented. The result is a complete paper trail, consolidated in an easy-to-use, Web-accessible application and available to auditors with a few clicks of the mouse.

The Vertices HDD Tracker module can also be used by any organization. For those clients that are currently using Vertices, they can simply add the module to their system. For those organizations that don’t have Vertices, they can use the module as a stand-alone unit to track their drives.

“Vertices’ modular design provides our clients with a tailored system that can be managed from almost any online device,” explained Mike Kramer.

Organizations are encouraged to visit the company’s Web site to learn more about the Vertices HDD Tracker Module ( B&L will also be setting up Webinars—both private and public—for interested organizations.
