EAST Technologies launches new east-tec Eraser 2011 privacy software

November, 2010 – With the growing economic concern and the threats to the global security, the need for a solution that offers individual protection from online traps and removal of online traces of one’s computer is more imperative than ever. Understanding the value and importance of keeping your photos, documents and valuable data private, EAST Technologies brings once more a software product meant to help you sleep without any worry that someone might use your information against you. The program protects all of your confidential information and data from online predators and represents a complex, yet easy to use tool, which removes all evidence of your computer and online activity.

Whether you’re a business person who needs to ensure that colleagues and customers cannot view sensitive information on your computer, a network administrator who wants to prevent prying eyes from viewing financial, competitive, or other private information on company machines, or a home user who wants to keep the kids from snooping at their parent’s files, east-tec Eraser 2011 has the tools that you need.

Many PC users are unaware of the fact that – without your knowledge or approval – Windows stores revealing information about you in temporary folders, Windows swap files, Internet history directories, cookies, deleted email messages and the shadow copies that are automatically turned on when Vista is installed . This information contains words and images that tell which web sites you’ve visited, which Instant Messaging conversations you’ve held, which chatroom conversations you’ve participated in, and lots of other information that you may not wish to become public. east-tec Eraser 2011 finds this information, and destroys it. Used regularly, east-tec Eraser 2011 can prevent identity theft, as well as bring you peace of mind by ensuring that your private information remains private. The program meets or exceeds all U.S. Department of Defense standards for permanently removing information from computers.

Different Internet browsers store private information in different places. east-tec Eraser 2011 works with all popular browsers, including Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, Mozilla Firefox, America Online, MSN Explorer, and Opera. It also works with all of the popular peer-to-peer programs, including Kazaa, Kazaa Lite, iMesh, Napster, Morpheus, Direct Connect, Limewire, and Shareaza. In addition, east-tec Eraser 2011 supports ICQ, Yahoo Messenger, Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, Microsoft Office, Google Toolbar, and many other popular programs. The program knows where your computer has stored sensitive information, and deletes it, permanently.

Other new features in the latest release include a new graphical interface, support for dozens of popular applications (over 250 complex, added, updated or replaced applications). east-tec Eraser 2011 also lets you import and export options, making it easier to configure the program on multiple computers. You can opt not to show the files and folders being cleaned while the program is erasing your files. There are also additional ways to protect specified folders from being erased.

Whether you’re an inexperienced PC user or a power user who knows exactly what he wants from his security software, it’s easy to begin to benefit immediately from using east-tec Eraser 2011. You can either use the built-in Wizard – who walks you through the steps needed to protect your privacy and sensitive information – or just as well create user-defined erasure methods. Filters can be set to prevent specific data from being erased and the more advanced user can implement a password-protected system of permissions for each computer user. Critical folders (such as Windows or System32) are protected by default, against accidental erasure.

east-tec Eraser 2007 runs under Windows Vista/XP/2003/2000/NT/Me/98, costs $49.95(US) for a single-user license, and may be purchased securely online at www.east-tec.com.

east-tec Eraser 2005 featured in Sarasota PC Monitor

east-tec Eraser 2005, a software solution designed to remove all evidence of your computer activities beyond recovery (web sites visited, e-mail read, images or video clips viewed, files deleted) using US Department of Defense methods, was featured in Sarasota PC Monitor, a journal of the oldest PC User Groups in Florida dedicated to providing educational information to all users, in their September 2005 issue.

Their review says that “deleting files with Eraser is the essence of simplicity. On installation the erase command becomes an item on your rightclick context menu in Windows Explorer. You need only to select the files or folders you want permanently gone and click the command in your context menu which reads ‘erase beyond recovery’. With no further ado you need never worry again about its complete and total elimination.”

Prevent Dangerous Information Leaks with Computer Disposals or Returns

Oradea, Romania, European Union – July 15, 2009 – EAST Technologies has released east-tec DisposeSecure, a powerful software application that completely and securely removes all data from hard drives or disk partitions before return of leased assets or computer disposal.

The latest release adds network support that will cut corporate users’ work loads when securing their computers. DisposeSecure runs over the network. Simply install the program on a server, network boot all of the computers that you want to erase, and the program will remove all data from the hard drives. You can create filters to select computers by MAC address. All sanitizing logs from all machines are sent to the server, where you can manage them easily.

Companies resell or donate outdated computers, reassign them to different departments and personnel, or remove them from operation when they upgrade hardware or migrate to newer operating systems. Private users resell or give away their obsolete systems after upgrading to newer and faster computers. But nobody wants to give away the entire history and data from that old computer, although this is exactly what happens if you don’t take extra precautions.

Deleting files, formatting the hard disk or even using the FDISK utility will not destroy data. It will only prevent the operating system and normal software from accessing it. This is not enough to stop even a simple recovery utility from retrieving valuable corporate trade secrets, business plans, personal files, confidential letters, or traces of Internet or newsgroup activity.

Running east-tec DisposeSecure on a hard disk before giving it away will help avoid the risks of sharing sensitive information with people that will have access to that computer in the future. The program removes all traces of software and data from the computer hard disk, by overwriting and destroying every sector and every bit of information.

Data is removed according with U.S. Department of Defense standards, but the user can also use custom security levels, including the maximum security Gutmann standard.

east-tec DisposeSecure is operating system independent and supports any version of Windows (7/Vista/XP Home/XP Pro/2003 Server/2000/NT/Me/98/95/3.1), Linux (any distribution), FreeBSD, Solaris, SCO UNIX, UNIXWARE, OS/2, BeOS, etc. Prices start from 24.95(US), and the product may be purchased securely online at www.east-tec.com. Site licenses are also available for corporate/government users. You can download a free 15-day trial version from the same Internet address.

east-tec Eraser 2007 Protects from Vista’s Shadow Copies

EAST Technologies has extended the data security and privacy protection of east-tec Eraser 2007 to cope with Windows Vista’s new “Previous Versions” (also known as “Shadow Copies”) function. Vista lets you create and store shadow copies of your files. Unlike other third-party file erasing programs that only remove the original copies of your files, east-tec Eraser 2007 gives the option to also erase shadow copies.

Oradea, Romania, European Union – March 08, 2007 – Many Vista users are unaware of how the new operating system threatens their privacy. As a default selection, the new shadow copies are automatically turned on when Vista is installed. Your computer is storing copies of your computer activities, as well as information about your Internet surfing. Erasing this information doesn’t ensure your privacy because the shadow copies remain intact. east-tec Eraser 2007, however, permanently removes both the original and shadow copies, and protects your privacy. Used regularly, east-tec Eraser 2007 can prevent identity theft, as well as bring peace of mind by ensuring that private information remains private.

New features in the latest release include support for dozens of popular applications, including the communications and multimedia programs that you don’t want people to know about. east-tec Eraser 2007 also lets you import and export options, making it easier to configure the program on multiple computers. You can opt to not show the files and folders being cleaned while the program is erasing your files. There are also additional ways to protect specified folders from being erased.

Without your knowledge, Windows stores revealing information about you in temporary folders, Windows swap files, Internet history directories, cookies, and deleted email messages. This information contains words and images that tell which web sites you’ve visited, which Instant Messaging conversations you’ve held, which chatroom conversations you’ve participated in, and lots of other information that you may not wish to become public. east-tec Eraser 2007 finds this information, and destroys it. The program meets or exceeds all U.S. Department of Defense standards for permanently removing information from computers.

Different Internet browsers store private information in different places. east-tec Eraser 2007 works with all popular browsers, including Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, Mozilla Firefox, America Online, MSN Explorer, and Opera. It also works with all of the popular peer-to-peer programs, including Kazaa, Kazaa Lite, iMesh, Napster, Morpheus, Direct Connect, Limewire, and Shareaza. In addition, east-tec Eraser 2007 supports ICQ, Yahoo Messenger, Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, Microsoft Office, Google Toolbar, and many other popular programs. The program knows where your computer has stored sensitive information, and deletes it, permanently.

It’s easy for inexperienced users to begin to benefit immediately from using east-tec Eraser 2007. The built-in Wizard walks you through the steps needed to protect your privacy and sensitive information. You can schedule the program to run at regular intervals, automatically securing your privacy. You can even drag and drop files onto east-tec Eraser 2007, and the program will permanently erase them so that they can never be recovered. Critical folders (such as Windows or System32) are protected by default, against accidental erasure.

Power users can employ command-line parameters to set the program’s options, integrate the program with Windows Explorer, and create user-defined erasure methods. You can run the program in stealth mode, completely invisible to other computer users. Set filters to prevent specific data from being erased. You can even implement a password-protected system of permissions for each computer user.

Whether you’re a business person who needs to ensure that colleagues and customers cannot view sensitive information on your computer, a network administrator who wants to prevent prying eyes from viewing financial, competitive, or other private information on company machines, or a home user who wants to keep the kids from snooping at their parents’ files, east-tec Eraser 2007 has the tools that you need.
