In a digital environment that has recently been under seize by viruses and hackers, more and more vendors are stepping up. For example, IndiSoft’s WipeOutoffers the financial industry the protection of a secure data destruction application. WipeOut enables administrators with the proper credentials at banks and other financial institutions to use the tool to effectively and efficiently destroy client-sensitive data from hard drives in a secure environment. This allows them to protect consumers as well as comply with federal regulations that require banks to destroy data in a specific way. WipeOut ensures this requirement is effectively met.
Management at IndiSoft, an ISO certified organization, understands information security and WipeOut ensures securely remove unwanted data without leaving any traces.
“Financial institutions have such an important role in the lives of consumers as well as the health of the general economy that requires them to provide the peace of mind that sensitive information that is no longer needed is destroyed properly,” said Keith Boyce, vice president of business development. “With WipeOut financial institutions can comply with federal regulations, protect consumers’ information and now have the option of recycling the hardware to the communities they serve.”
WipeOut has DD2345 certification from the U.S. Department of Defense under the U.S./Canada Joint Certification Program and is patented technology that features a secure log of when it is accessed by users so system administrators can determine and review what is being erased, when and by whom. Users can properly remove sensitive data that is no longer needed from the hard drive of a server, PC or laptop, which then can be donated, all while knowing no customer information still remains active or accessible.
General response to WipeOut has been positive and users say it works as expected. The application gives any financial institution a method for complete data destruction efficiently and without the possibility of accidentally erasing needed data.
