With two secure, proven methods for permanently erasing data, Kroll Ontrack can provide the data erasing solution that best fits your needs. Data erasing services offer a fast, convenient and 100% reliable method for permanent data destruction.
- Ontrack Eraser services: A convenient, end-of-lifecycle service performed by Kroll Ontrack specialists that offers complete removal of your data using a degausser, a hardware device that destroys data using strong magnetic fields.
Note: The strong magnetic fields used by a degausser device on a hard drive will not allow for re-use of the drive – so this service is suited for devices that have reached the end of their lifecycle and will not be reused.
- Ontrack Eraser verification services: If you perform your own data wiping procedures or utilise a third party for data removal, Kroll Ontrack engineers can provide an extra level of security by attempting to recover data from the storage device. If no traces of data are found, a verification certificate is provided to you for your records.
Why is permanent data erasure necessary?
- An organization’s most sensitive information and intellectual property are often stored on hard drives
- Sensitive information that falls into the wrong hands can lead to loss of business, property, or reputation or lead to civil and criminal liability
- Simply deleting data from a hard drive does not mean that the data is gone forever
- Regulatory requirements for data protection and customer privacy demand complete, well documented data removal
When is permanent data erasure necessary?
- When disposing used PCs and hard drives
- When transferring a PC from one user to another
- When customer data must be removed to meet government regulations
