Many recent data bearing IT devices now contain Solid State Media (SSD) as their main storage medium, instead of traditional magnetic hard drives (HDD).
SSD’s have many advantages over HDD – no moving parts, noiseless, faster data access, consume less power – but since the technology is profoundly different from an HDD, traditional overwriting techniques may not work well. Data erasure software that could predictably securely erase an HDD may leave data un-erased on an SSD. The good news is that you can have peace of mind on SSD erasure when using Re-Tek as your IT Asset Retirement partner. Re-Tek use Blancco Data Erasure Software which is certified by DIPCOG, for erasure of SSD storage.
