Data security is crucial for businesses today — it’s equally important for SMBs all the way up to large enterprise. Furthermore, advancements in memory technology — focused on speed, size, and data density — bring along with them new forms of non-volatile data storage. Protecting our clients’ brands, reputation, and data is core to what we do here at Sipi Asset Recovery.
In an earlier blog, we covered the new wave of high capacity storage devices and the challenges they bring to data security. These are arriving to the marketplace in the form of MAMR (microwave-assisted-magnetic recording) drives as well as HAMR (heat-assisted magnetic recording) drives. Tried-and-true methods of secure destruction for these ultra-high-capacity drives, such as shredding or degaussing, are at least decreasing in effectiveness… and at worst, simply ineffective.
