Freedom To Modify Custom Config Files

WipeDrive is the global leader in drive erasure. Deployed throughout the world in many environments, WipeDrive can be customized to work specifically for a customer's internal requirements. This customization provides a strategic advantage for WipeDrive. Many competitors in the data sanitization industry provide locked custom builds that only the vendor can modify. WhiteCanyon has found this causes multiple customer delays and is a source of major frustration for IT managers and ITADs.

Customizations allow clients to make efficiency improvements that save on cost and redundancy in their process. Access to custom builds has been limited by many data erasure tools but WipeDrive Enterprise has opened the customization file to allow client's modification and distribution. This will allow you to edit all settings; from language settings to RAID options.

The ability for clients to configure WipeDrive is included with the Enterprise license and the custom options are provided to each client. Here small number of the WipeDrive Enterprise customizations:

The freedom to change custom configurations in WipeDrive will allow you to have faster turnaround times and get builds out to your locations faster. You'll have full access to all the custom configurations – just a small sample are listed above – so you can deploy custom builds immediately throughout your organization.

Distributing Custom WipeDrive Isos

When you've made changes to your custom build it can be rebuilt into an ISO and distributed throughout your organization. The ISO can be distributed on an internal network or mounted to CD and USB for easy distribution to technicians and global locations. This will ensure wipe processes are standard across your organization with the correct build which ensures your data security policy is accurately implemented.

Secure Data Erasure Policy

Internal data erasure policies mature over time. As technological advances and new methods of data attacks occur, it is important that the data erasure policy continually improves to meet these new threats. The erasure software tool selected to fulfill the policy must also continually improve. WipeDrive Enterprise uses cutting edge technology to be compatible with all new devices, ATA standards and NIST requirements. WipeDrive also provides the user the ability to make changes to their custom builds so organizations can stay lean and effective without delays from 3rd party vendors.
