AMERICAN FORK, UTAH (PRWEB) November 14, 2012
WhiteCanyon Software Inc. today announced the launch of WipeDrive 7, the first and only NSA EAL4+ certified hard drive erasure software that makes it easy for IT professionals to securely and permanently erase hard drives. WipeDrive is the industry’s most trusted hard drive erasing software and is used exclusively by the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Air Force, as well as leading private sector enterprises such as Deloitte and Humana. This seventh major release of the WipeDrive product focuses on simplifying the complexities that enterprises face in protecting their confidential corporate data and customer information when retiring or recycling computer hardware. The release gives enterprises the ability to wipe computers located in remote locations such as branch offices that may not have a dedicated IT staff.
“WipeDrive 7 aims to change the traditional standard for hard drive erasure software by making it simple for enterprises to securely wipe any computer they manage, in both local and branch offices, all from a single location,” said Nathan Jones, VP of Business Development and Sales at WhiteCanyon. “Our remote wiping technology revolutionizes the wiping process by allowing IT staff to remotely wipe any computer on their network without ever having to touch or move it. This new feature has large implications for companies, such as banks and pharmacies, who want to securely manage their branch computers from a centralized location.”
For many companies that store business, medical, or personal financial information on hard drives, simple deletion will not protect the data when disposing of the equipment. While the operating system cannot reference a deleted file, file recovery programs can continue to locate the ‘deleted’ data. This makes companies and their customers vulnerable to identity theft issues, data loss, and intellectual property crime. Federal laws such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Graham-Leach-Bliley or other state laws can also lead to legal liabilities and even criminal penalties. As a result, enterprises rely on products like WipeDrive to permanently and securely erase all hard drive data to protect their private information and give them the option to recycle and reuse computers and other devices.
“Our customers include leaders in industries, such as healthcare, military, and finance, where protecting personal information is of paramount importance,” added Jones. “The customer trials with the new WipeDrive 7 release prove that the product not only permanently erases all sensitive data but makes it easy for IT teams to manage the hardware retirement process, regardless of operating system, hardware type, language, or Internet connectivity. It is a critical component of any I.T. security program.”
