DATA DESTRUCTION SIMPLIFIED

ITAD

IT Asset Disposition goes hand-in-hand with data security and reporting. WipeOS can ensure certified data destruction of all data-containing devices and provides detailed reports cataloging each drive’s serial number by job number, location, or other customizable fields. By wiping and reselling the drives instead of physically destroying them, ITAD companies can maximize value.

 

The WipeOS team can help ITAD companies create a data destruction lab for all types of drives: HDD and SSD 512/520 block size, including all interfaces IDE/ATA, SCSI, SATA, SAS, FC. WipeOS reporting automatically reads the make, model and serial number of the drives to prepopulate a certificate of destruction, eliminating the time-consuming task of scanning each individual drive. By selecting 1-pass, 3-pass or 7-pass wipe, it’s easy can stay in compliance with your internal processes and clients’ needs.

Companies in the ITAD industry appreciate a couple of additional features that WipeOS offers: the drives are tested using S.M.A.R.T. technology, and the number of hours every drive has been powered on is catalogued. Knowing the make, model, condition and hours of each drive makes it much easier to price and sell them.

Data Center

A single WipeOS appliance in a 1U rack space in any data center environment can provide peace of mind about the diagnosis of HDDs/SSDs. It offers the ability to wipe drives prior to decommissioning, and before they leave the security of your data center. Users can view the logs from anywhere in the world with an internet connection while an operator on the ground with clearance to the data center can perform the necessary functions.

 

With proper authentication, users can log into a secure portal to view all the HDDs/SSDs on a single network in a data center. The make and model numbers of the drives, as well as how many hours each drive has been powered on are available for viewing. This makes it easy to see which drives may be in need of replacement so that backup drives of the same type can be ordered. The portal can be organized by location, rack number and/or cage number in a colocation. Multiple WipeOS appliances can be seen from a single portal.

When certain drives are selected to be wiped in the event of upgrades or decommissioning, an authorized operator on the ground can perform the data sanitization from the WipeOS appliance. On the portal, users will be able to see the logs of all the drives that have been sanitized, as well as the S.M.A.R.T. test results to know if the drives can be re-purposed. If a drive fails, it will be highlighted in red and marked “Failed.” A report of select drives that have been wiped can be created, and certificates of data destruction can be generated and printed and/or saved for filing and reporting purposes.

Enterprise

Most enterprise level organizations already have all of their workstations on one network, making a WipeOS appliance compatible by simply plugging it into a network switch. Operators can sanitize data of any one, a select group, or all of the stations on the network and generate a report detailing the make, model and serial numbers of the drives. Reports can be viewed by users from a secure online portal.

 

Most enterprise organizations need to refresh their hardware regularly. Each upgrade frees up the older models to be decommissioned, meaning data is coming off the network one way or another. The alternative to having the data sanitized while still on the network is to have the older equipment leave the organization’s custody with data still on the drives or be stored on-site. Both options are risky; if a drive is stored or transported while still containing sensitive data, there is a potential exposure to loss or theft.

With WipeOS, IT managers have the ability to eliminate those unnecessary risks. Simply select the drives to be decommissioned, whether by department or by individual workstation, and choose the number of passes required to wipe the drives with in order to meet your organization’s security standards. A report of the drives’ wiping logs can be generated for your company’s records. Finally, the number of hours and S.M.A.R.T. test results can be valuable information to aid IT personnel in deciding which drives to keep for backups and which to recycle.

Small Business

With WipeOS, a small business doesn’t need a technician to ensure that all data is wiped clean from devices that will eventually need to be decommissioned. WipeOS offers a cost-effective method for small businesses to ensure that decommissioned drives are thoroughly wiped prior to leaving their facility, eliminating the potential of sensitive data being compromised in transit or storage.

 

Small businesses arguably have the most to lose in the event of a costly data breach. Since most small businesses do not have an IT department or legal team, sensitive company or customer data can be a huge liability. Deleting data or even formatting drives is simply not enough with modern data recovery tools. While many small businesses may not have internal data security protocols, WipeOS can bring a small business’s security to the same level as that of a Fortune 100 company.

WipeOS makes technology and reporting previously available only to large organizations available to small businesses in an affordable and user-friendly package. Now anyone with the most basic computer skills can use WipeOS to ensure that data is properly and permanently destroyed.
