Kroll Ontrack announced the launch of Ontrack Eraser 4.0, a feature-rich enterprise data eraser solution, complete with expanded drive wiping capacity, VMware erasure capabilities and new reporting and security management functionality.
“A 2012 Internet Security Threat Report¹ revealed that 234 million identities were exposed in 2011 because of security breaches, reiterating the importance of effective, secure data wiping,” said Abhik Mitra, product manager, Kroll Ontrack. “Whether you are a company that needs to recycle a large number of drives that are end-of-life or re-deploy a set of machines, Ontrack Eraser 4.0 can handle the specifications of your environment and the scope of your job – all while ensuring proper protocol is being maintained.”
Specific features and functionality of Ontrack Eraser 4.0 include:
VMware Drive Wiping Capabilities: The ability to delete data from VMware machines, ensuring organisations are securely deleting data from their virtual environments and therefore addressing the complete scope of their IT environment.
Enhanced System Performance: The enhanced capacity to perform over 200 concurrent device erasures to ensure the largest enterprise jobs are handled efficiently.
Enhanced System Reporting: New reports that denote the hard drive make, serial number and model number, as well as the wipe algorithm applied to accomplish the job, providing organisations with the appropriate records for recycling centres and compliance requests.
Security and Central Management Capabilities: New system authentication functionality to validate the erasure is conducted in the correct manner by the appropriate individual.
