What Is WipeDrive?

WipeDrive is an advanced data erasure tool. It uses the latest technology to ensure that your sensitive data cannot be retrieved or recovered in any way, even with forensic methods.
It is suitable for businesses of all sizes, personal use, and government entities.

It works on hard drives, removable storage, mobile devices, and remote devices.

It meets or exceeds stringent global security standards, such as:

  • NIAP's EAL 2+ security standard

  • Sarbanes-Oxley Act

WipeDrive And The Data Lifecycle

WipeDrive plays a key role in the data lifecycle. It seamlessly enables:

Freeing Of Resources
long-term archival of data consumes vast resources, including hardware, media, personnel, and time. Securely erasing this data with WipeDrive frees up these resources, so they can be allocated to the next dataset.

Protection Of Future Data
You need to be able to rely on your data throughout the lifecycle. Completely wiping storage media with WipeDrive is essential in removing all old data, malware, and other programs which may taint future data.

Security Of Obsolete Data
Archived data is a manget ofr attacks, which can lead to security breaches and loss of privacy. When you erase with WipeDrive, you're making sure sensitive data can't ever be accessed by bad actors.

A Complete Audit Trail
Data must be tracked across the lifecycle to guarantee that it is doing its job correctly. With full reporting tools, fine grained administration options, and the ability to manage data wipes remotely. WipeDrive makes maintaining an audit trail easy.

The future is in big data, and managing its lifecycle properly is more important than ever. If you're concerned about how your data will be accessed and used, make WipeDrive the cornerstone of your security. For maximum-grade data erasure that won't let you down, visit WhiteCanyon.com.
