Which Data Sanitization Standard Is Right For Your Data Center?

Of course, your industry or field of operations may have specific standards that will vary, depending on the type of information your enterprise data center stores and distributes. Using a certified solution will also ensure you meet these industry standards and government requirements:

  • Securely managing protected health information (PHI) in compliance with HIPAA regulations
  • Protecting customer financial information to comply with the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) and Payment Card Industry Security Standards (PCI)
  • Meeting accounting standards for data protection including Gramm-Leach Bliley (GLB) and Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX)
  • Protecting consumer data to comply with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Should Your Organization Be Using A Certified Wipe Drive Solution?

Some businesses have the legal ability to weigh the risk of a data breach against the cost of avoiding one, and they choose a less secure software to erase data. However, when affordable software solutions offer the same level of security and reliability that the industry standards require, there may be little reason to settle for a low-budget solution and accept the risk of being held responsible for failing to prevent the theft of sensitive data.

Many data destruction software products will claim to comply with these high standards, but they do not go through the rigorous process to achieve certification. In order to be sure that your software solution does meet current standards at the enterprise level, WhiteCanyon Software's WipeDrive has been certified to Common Criteria EAL 2+, which is the highest level of any data wiping software on the market today.

Why accept any level of risk when creating an enterprise-level data erasure procedure? Many government agencies and the largest data centers choose WhiteCanyon Software's WipeDrive Enterprise to eliminate security holes and pass the highest audit standards. By meeting these same standards, you open up future opportunities and contracts with the largest customers in the data market.
