By now, you’ve likely heard the incredible statistics around E-waste: one of the largest and most complex waste streams in the world, having devastating consequences on everything from sustainability, to health, to geopolitical implications shaping our world.
Whether for work, study or leisure, computers have become an indispensable part of everyday life. But intensive use can consume a lot of power, and with rising...
Once again, we are proud to tell you that our program Securaze Mobile has added further exceptional features on top of its current ones, attempting to provide you with more possibilities to use it and to better support you.
Insecure erasures with the risk of sensitive data remaining on the device or the recovery of this data?
Microsoft Windows. Everyone knows it, everyone has probably worked with it at some point.
While Microsoft and OEMs have good intentions, data sanitization isn’t their core competency. Additionally, they lack the necessary certifications and audit trails requisite to reassure users and organizations their data is truly unrecoverable.
Updates, updates, updates, ...
Faster, safer and more reliable - simply better.
After months of hard work, we had the pleasure of introducing our new product Securaze Mobile for secure data erasure, specifically designed for end-of-life devices, to you about 2 months ago. And we are happy to inform you now that we have continued to work hard to provide you with more new and innovative features to use, which we have already succeeded in doing!
Numerous different accounts with various passwords, and in the end: absolutely no overview of which one belongs where. Well, not with Securaze! We support you and allow you to memorize one password less. But how does it work? Find out in this blog!
Work Diagnostics is a part of the Securaze Work software program designed for testing the functionality of various parts of a technical device. The diagnosis improves and enriched reports and the authenticity of Securaze products and helps in the efficient and thorough classification of reusable and resalable items. With Work Diagnose, you have a detailed overview of your assets and can make projections of potential revenue when considering what to repair and sell or dispose of. Customers then buying these used items receive a certificate confirming the status of the equipment, adding value and making it more trustworthy.
The diagnosis can be run automatically or manually after Work boots up on a device, depending on which tests you want to run. Tests of RAM, battery, motherboard, Bluetooth and WiFi are performed automatically in the background and do not require any further attention from the operator once started. When the tests have been completed, the user receives a pop-up window with information about their completion and whether any errors occurred. USB, screen, webcam, keyboard and mouse are tested manually and require the user's intervention.
USB ports are tested by connecting a device in order to list all detected ports. When testing the screen, the first thing to do is to select a test type, as shown in the picture below, and afterwards the screen changes colors from red, to green, to blue, to black and white squares, to white only, to black only, and then back to screen displays. In case of screen problems, the part of the screen being damaged can then be selected.
Why traditional sanitization methods as specified in DoD 5220.22-M are not sufficient for SSD erasure and can leave recoverable data behind.
The DoD specification was set long ago, when rotating magnetic media hard drives ruled the IT world. To erase these drives, overwriting all data with zeros or random patterns - whatever the standard offered - was enough. But the world changed and entered the age of digitalization, and with it came new hard drives like SSDs (solid state drives).
