Ontrack Data Recovery, a provider of data recovery and legal technologies products and services, has launched Ontrack Eraser, an easy-to-use, flexible software tool that permanently erases all data following deployment.
Helping companies protect against security breaches and comply with laws and regulations regarding data retention and privacy, Ontrack Eraser deletes all traces of information stored on targeted media, making recovery impossible.
While many companies are good at protecting their data with firewalls, antivirus software, encryption and network passwords, these same companies forget to erase their data before discarding, selling or giving away PCs. This move reveals a major security breach that can be avoided.
Ontrack Eraser reduces the risk of lost business secrets, a diminished reputation and liability.
Just because data has been deleted does not mean it is gone from the hard drive, even if all the drives files have been put in the recycle bin and the hard drive has been reformatted, the data could still be recovered.
Ontrack Eraser is an effective erasure method because it permanently deletes information by overwriting all the data on the hard drive.
Ontrack Eraser is easy-to-install, easy-to-use and has good reporting capabilities. Installation and configuration is performed with a simple, intuitive administration tool.
Moreover, Ontrack Eraser is equipped with a powerful reporting tool that captures a record of all the erasures performed on a network or a single PC.
Verifying that all data has been erased down to the unit level, a report is delivered to administrators via email or in .xml format.
