Everything you should know about disk sanitization techniques for HDDs and SSDs!
According to the US Department of Commerce data security breaches cost over $250 billion to US companies per year. This means providing confidentiality implies not only information to be stored properly, but also be destroyed according to certain rules. The article Why_Wipe_SSD is going to illustrate the main peculiarities of irreversible data destruction operation in order to allow a secure storage disposal.
The approach to perform this kind of operation will differ from the type of storage device: HDD (Hard Disk Drive) or SSD (Solid State Drive). The internal architecture of an SSD is very different from that of a hard disk, and the way SSDs store data is very different as well. This means that existing disk sanitization techniques originally used for HDDs won’t work on SSDs.
After some research on the issue, our company has improved our disk wiping technology and can now guarantee irreversible secure data destruction on SSD storage devices without shortening the SSD’s service life.
A package deal of both tools for the price of one available until December 30th, 2014!
