ReStor Lab, the first SSD, and HDD Repair Company in India with ISO certification, recently announced that it has entered into an exclusive partnership with YouWipe, the leading certified data erasure software organization.
Following the partnership, Restor Lab has enhanced its service portfolio and will now offer Data-Erasure-As -A-Service (DEAAS) to businesses in India. Restor Lab will also provide s/w licenses at competitive prices to its partners such as waste refurbishers/ ITADs, and Corporate value added resellers, enabling them to provide Data Erasure services to customers.
Talking about the partnership, Sharad Srivastava, CEO and Founder, Restor Lab Pvt. Ltd., stated, “We are thrilled to provide Indian ITAD Centers, as well as Corporate and Public agencies with exclusive Youwipe Certified Data Erasure technology.”
He further explained Youwipe is a software-based method that ensures 100% of data on HDD, SSD, Flash, and mobile devices are destroyed as well as rendered uncovered by any existing technology. “Once data is erased, a digitally signed, temper proof certificate of erasure is provided for a detail audit trail to comply with internal or external auditing requirements,” added Sharad.
Throwing more light on the partnership, Ariel Figueras, CEO and Co-Founder, YouWipe, reiterated, “This collaboration will give the Indian market the ability to reach the highly certified and NATO Accredited data erasure technology and solution to reduce electronic waste.”
Youwipe is simple to use and integrated s/w that carries out secure data erasure/data sanitization based on certified standard methods/algorithms that have gained global recognition. Same integrated s/w is needed for HDD (all interfaces and class), data center storage, Solid State Drives (SSD), mobile phone (iPhone & Android phones) & flash drives. After the secure erasure, s/w generates a report comprising details of the hardware and storage device model as well as the serial numbers. A detailed configuration and test report of each component of the system will also assist the rental leasing business.
YouWipe has been certified by governments as well as independent security companies, including NATO, the Common Criteria (EAL +3), the UK National cyber security center (NCSC), TUV Saarland, the Dutch General Intelligence and security services, the Finnish National cyber security center (TRAFICOM), and ADISA ( UK asset Disposal and alliance security alliance), among others.
