Kroll Ontrack, a provider of data recovery, information management and e-disclosure, announced the launch of Ontrack Eraser 4.0, an enterprise data eraser offering.
The firm said it has expanded drive wiping capacity, VMware erasure capabilities and new reporting and security management functionality.
"A 2012 Internet Security Threat Report¹ revealed that 234 million identities were exposed in 2011 because of security breaches, reiterating the importance of effective, secure data wiping," said Abhik Mitra, product manager, Kroll Ontrack. "Whether you are a company that needs to recycle a large number of drives that are end-of-life or re-deploy a set of machines, Ontrack Eraser 4.0 can handle the specifications of your environment and the scope of your job - all while ensuring proper protocol is being maintained."
The firm said the VMware Drive Wiping capabilities mean the ability to delete data from VMware machines, ensuring organisations are securely deleting data from their virtual environments and therefore addressing the complete scope of their IT environment.
Enhanced system performance now offers the capacity to perform over 200 concurrent device erasures; there's also enhanced system reporting and new system authentication functionality to validate the erasure is conducted in the correct manner by the appropriate individual.
