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Companies resell or donate outdated computers, reassign them to different departments and personnel, or remove them from operation when they upgrade hardware or migrate to newer operating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 Site licenses are also available for corporate/government users. You can download a free 15-day trial version from the same Internet address.
