How Kroll Ontrack Is Revolutionizing the Data Erasure Process

While some may be under the impression that their data is inaccessible after deletion, some files may still be recoverable by prying eyes, malicious computer users and would-be identity thieves. In fact, removing all traces of a file from a hard drive is anything but a straightforward process. That’s exactly where the team with Kroll Ontrack enters the picture. Offering a comprehensive Hosted Erase platform, Kroll Ontrack is able to ease any concerns of deleted data while eliminating any lingering remnants of sensitive corporate or customer information.

Todd Johnson, vice president with data recovery operations at Kroll Ontrack, spoke about the complexities of data erasure and management in the 21st century. He was quoted as saying: “Data erasure is critical to sound data management, but it is one of many solutions and processes for IT to manage. Whether carrying out a sanitization project on old devices before recycling, disposing of them or safely removing data before reusing a set of devices, businesses want a secure and certified erasure solution that is easy to deploy and manage. Kroll Ontrack hosted erase does just that. It takes the setup and maintenance burden off of businesses while also ensuring that no trace of company data resides on the devices in question.”
