It has nothing to do with buggy operation and laggy performance – Killdisk Industrial works like clockwork, helping SMBs with extensive data erasure demands save money and perform a variety of data recycling tasks in a mind-blowingly effective way.
The recent release by LSoft Technologies sets a new standard in the product niche and it’s full of ambitions to shake the entire industry. Let’s have a closer look at the novelty to figure out its strongest suits and dig to the core of its success.
It’s all about customizability for a particular work scope. KillDisk Industrial comes as a standalone piece of software, but can be upgraded with Destroyinator – a hardware conveyor for erasing information from SSDs, HDDs and various external drives in bulk. The ‘all-included’ configuration is reasonable to be considered from mid/long term prospects, although it has everything on board to pay off in huge one-time data erasure missions. To have a better idea imagine a contract with the data center whereas wiping out is the process for several business days. This is where a several thousands something investment is highly likely to be paid off quicker than you can imagine. Talking about the software application, the price range starts from $30 per slot (when ordering a 60+ slots configuration), jumping up to $50/slot in ‘up to 7 slots’ version. A fair price against the background of competition, largely starting from $80 – $100/slot, looks more than just fair when you take a good look at what features are in store.
Supporting a wide array of international data wiping out standards (including the DoD hugely adopted in the US; 20+ in total) sits on top of the list. Next come simultaneous erasure of 100+ hard drives in conjunction with advanced error handling that guarantee not only quick, but also rewarding performance, enabling to sort out even tough ‘bad sector’ cases. Apart from that, the app provides an ability to diagnose the drives and their attributes with S.M.A.R.T monitoring. With KillDisk Industrial issuing customizable certificates has never been easier – now it’s a matter of a few clicks. The app arms you with hot-swap functionality, disk browsing capabilities and batch operations. Finally, all the functions KillDisk Industrial supports can be automated for a lightning speed performance: you may even configure the system to kick off a wiping out procedure as soon as the hard drive is connected. For advanced management you may want to upgrade your order with a preconfigured Live USB bootable drive for using an external monitor.
KillDisk is becoming widely adopted at data servicing companies as well as organizations having large data erasure requirements (financial institutions, IT departments at banks and processing services and many more). It is designed with the most widely spread e-recycling requirements. Does it leave something to be desired? It might have been cheaper, but taking into account the alternatives, you should definitely give it a green light.
