MITIGATE RISK AND MAINTAIN STORAGE COMPLIANCE

Have the Capability for Secure Data Erasure Services
Managing the Compliance Business Challenge

In the ever-challenging business of the compliance climate, security of confidential information is a real challenge, and the penalties of failure are substantial – financially and legally and in many cases, it can be emotional. Reciprocal Data Erasure Services reduce the risk of data loss, disclosure, or unauthorised use throughout the information lifecycle.

New regulations, requirements, and customer loyalty means that every piece of information must be protected through its entire lifecycle. Compliance means following the rules and being able to prove it. Responsibility doesn’t end when your lease ends or a drive replacement is required – your confidential data is at risk any time you add to, move, or change your storage environment. These scenarios include:

  • Preparing assets for retirement or end-of-life
  • Repurposing or relocating information assets
  • Reallocating storage in shared storage environments
  • Returning equipment at lease end

 

SERVICE DESCRIPTION

Reciprocal’s Secure Data Erasure Service uses techniques and industry tools to help you protect your information – securely – and with an Audit trail.

Designed around business requirements, our Secure Data Erasure Service can be used to securely erase entire storage arrays and x86-based servers alike.  Our full array erasure services are available for virtually all storage arrays that support iSCSI, including Dell EMC, Hitachi, IBM, NetApp, and HP as well as EMC Centera.

Once the erasure process is complete, Reciprocal provides a certification that the drives have been erased and the level of erasure used. Reciprocal Secure Data Erasure Services use industry-leading tools which have been verified and validated by an external third party to ensure that the data is thoroughly overwritten so that it cannot possibly be recovered after the process is complete.
