Data Destruction Solutions for Government
Trusted by the U.S. Government
WipeDrive has become the leading data-destruction partner within the U.S. Government because it provides a solution that is secure, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly. Simply put, it's the best way for government agencies to securely and permanently erase data on their retired or recycled storage hardware.
Government agencies are held to a particularly high standard of data security practices. WipeDrive is the only disk-wiping technology that has been certified to NIAP's EAL4+ standard. In addition, WipeDrive meets or exceeds all major certifications and standards including HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, and the Common Criteria standard. According to the NSA, data deleted with WipeDrive is "permanently destroyed as to make any type of forensic data recovery impossible."
Using WipeDrive to erase data is a fraction of the cost of physically destroying hard drives – the method historically used. Not only is the hard cost per drive lower, you also achieve labor savings since disks don't need to be transferred to the location of physical destruction. With WipeDrive the process is fast, efficient, and effective.
Environmentally and Socially Conscious
One of the reasons government agencies are moving away from physically destroying hard drives is the environmental impact. Computer hardware contains toxic metals that, when placed in landfills, can leach into the ground water. By wiping drives, you can recycle hard drives instead of trashing them. This not only helps the environment but allows you to donate hardware to schools or charities.
