Wipe Technology allows users to have hardware encryption keys invalidated or all data automatically erased when the drive's power supply is turned off or when connected to an unauthorized system
Toshiba has launched five new self-encrypting hard drives which include automatic data invalidation technology
The accidental loss or deliberate theft of notebooks with drives full of sensitive information is not just the cause of red faces (or worse) for government or military officials around the globe, as the world of business has also been touched by such security breaches. Self-encrypting drives have done much to help lock down important files, but Toshiba has gone a step further by developing a technology that securely erases data rather than let it fall into unauthorized hands. Originally announced last August, Wipe Technology has now been incorporated into a new range of self-encrypting hard drives which will go into mass production at the end of June.
