HDD Data Secure Sanitizer
Personal computers and the internet are part of everyday life. We are storing more and more important data on harddisk and solid state drives. This icreases risks of accidental disclosure of confidential data when discarding drives.
To securely erase confidential data without the possibility of it being recovered by specialized software is an important issue for everyone. Information security is a serious matter for all. The news is frequently filled with
stories about stolen personal data, hijacked banking credentials or leaked patient files from hospitals. Make sure you are not the next victim! Many countries, including the Netherlands, have enacted laws to regulate data security for
companies and goverment institutions.
U-Reach Erasers offer the following sanitization methods;
This method complies with the security specification 5220.22M for data removal from U.S. Department of Defense. The 5220.22M data sanitization standard
for overwriting a hard disk means; three times per bit completely overwrite and then verify once (check for result). In addition, the overwrite patterns can be adjusted and a random pattern can be used to improve data security.
Fully complies with the security specification 5220.22M for data sanitization from the US Department of Defense but adds 7 times override to improve
security. This method is the same as the RCMP TSSIT OPS-II standard.
The secure erase method conforms to the
NIST 800-88 (rev1) Guidelines for Media Sanitization and uses the hardware instructions from the hard disk controller to completely overwrite all data, including the data area, HPA / DOS hidden area and other empty areas. This international standard
can be used together with the U-Reach Multi-Core Transfer Technology. This makes it possible to simultaneously overwrite up to a hunderd drives.
