With the release of WipeDrive 9.7, it is easier than ever to assure your company’s sensitive data remains secure even when your IT assets are repurposed or leave the company.
Simply deleting your business’ files or performing a factory reset on your devices is no longer enough to guarantee your data have been removed. In most instances, your secure information is still easily accessible with readily available tools and software. Deleting your data only removes the directory reference, making it no longer visible in your folders or on your desktop. Even emptying a ‘recycle bin’ does not entirely eradicate the trace of your data.
Files and data leave a physical imprint on your hard drive, and it is through these shadows that skilled computer hackers can gain access to your confidential data. Even using more thorough data erasure methods may not be enough to protect your data from falling into the wrong hands.
WipeDrive: the world’s most highly-certified data wiping software
With WipeDrive’s leading software, your data is completely erased and unrecoverable. By using military-grade wiping technology, your data is overwritten multiple times using Department-of-Defense-approved wipe patterns. Even with the most sophisticated tools, your data is unrecoverable.
How can WipeDrive protect your data?
Increase the security of your data destruction with the latest release of WipeDrive’s hard drive wiping software. WipeDrive 9.7 is a new and improved version of the same highly-certified and globally-trusted software, with the following new features:
Drive Life Estimation
WipeDrive can now provide a life expectancy for each drive by running both the diagnostic data and SMART data through analysis. Drives will then be categorised from Imminent Failure to Over 1,000 Days or anywhere in between. This brand new feature will help ITAD’s reduce RMA costs and provide customers with assurance on how long their refurnished drive will last.
PostgreSQL Database Compatibility
WipeDrive is now compatible with PostgreSQL – the world’s most advanced open-source relational database. With 30 years of active development, PostgreSQL is becoming an increasingly popular choice. Now you can rest assured that WipeDrive 9.7 can insert erasure reports directly into this management system.
Slot Mapping Configuration Utility
WipeDrive now has the utility to allow uses to configure any custom-built erasure machine with assigned drive slots. This update will enable customers to find and remove bad drives easily and simplifies the process of configuring a new wire appliance.
VNC Support for WipeDrive PXE Server
Virtual Network Computing (VNC) is now a popular choice for companies allowing their employees to work remotely. This new feature for WipeDrive allows customers using a graphical desktop-sharing system to connect and view the WipeDrive PXE server from any location.
Failed Log Troubleshooter
With WipeDrive 9.7, the addition of a failed log troubleshooter increases efficiency by allowing the troubleshooting to be adjusted per log task without needing to reconfigure other logs.
Raid-Auto Option Now Available in HBA Mode
The raid-auto option has also been revamped and now applies when reconfiguring supported raid controllers into HBA (host bus adapter) mode.
The updated and improved hard drive destruction you can trust.
