ZeroData™ Windows® – Secure, Permanent, Data Erasure
When Reliable, Total Data Cleaning is Required, ZeroData Solves the Need
Increased storage of sensitive personal and commercial data along with the increase in reused or recycled IT equipment, has driven the need for permanent data erasure of hard drives and other storage devices before they are retired, resold or refurbished. Regulations of how companies perform IT Asset Disposal (ITAD) has become stricter, particularly regarding the storage, and wiping of customer and personal information.
A data breach – losing personal or business information for public access – represents a serious and costly threat for any business. Not only from losing the trust of your customers, but severe punishments can result in large fines or even imprisonment. Even if you chose to send your computer hardware for disposal to an ITAD or IT service provider, you must make sure that they conform to data wiping regulations. GDPR compliance have lead the way in criteria for managing and destroying data. ZeroData Windows is the forerunner in recognizing government requirements for controlling sensitive data.

Much information held by operations is sensitive data. This sensitive data could be personal information from an employee file or private information from a medical file. This sensitive data could also be financial information such as credit and debit card account information. Would-be thieves may try to recover deleted financial data. The simple fact of the matter is that companies and organisations of all kinds must ensure that their data is reliably destroyed.
ZeroData Windows offers the flexibility to select from numerous data wiping standards, including specific SSD options. Run as either standalone or an integrated secure data erasure application with existing Windows based workflows, whether they are in Windows or Windows PE operating systems. Erasure operations provide an audit trail where each erasure step is identified using global unique identifiers and a digital signature.
Verification of Erasure and Audit Compliance
It is always a good idea to verify that the drive has been erased; in most situations legislation requires it. Today, it is becoming more common for companies to be able to provide an audit trail of how data is handled and disposed of when retiring or recycling storage devices.
ZeroData Windows hard drive eraser includes a Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART) log check feature to ensure the hard drive is functioning within specified norms before and after the drive is permanently erased. ZeroData Windows also includes full reporting and tamper proof validation certificates. These provide a permanent record of data destruction for compliance and audit purposes.
Today’s workstation PCs and laptops have a combination of traditional magnetic hard drives and SSDs. There are also several other types of hard drives that are used in servers and workstations. These server drives may contain vast amounts of sensitive data. Companies need a drive eraser tool that is compatible with all the hard drives in the organisation.
