What Wipes a HDD Completely?

Bluestsoft says neither erasing files nor formating completely erases data from an HDD-- which is why it suggests the use of its DiskDeleter EX EXE client-server solution. 

DiskDeleter runs on Windows from either shared network drive or remote operation tool, and reboots the system while deleting everything on disk. As an executable file, it requires no CD or USB. 

Bluestsoft says it erases 1 disk at 12 sec/GB, and x2 disks at 8 sec/GB-- the more disks it has to delete, the faster it works. 

As it completes the data deletion processors, administrators Read more...

Mixed Results for Network Security Market

The EMEA enterprise network security market shows 7.2% Y-o-Y growth for Q1 2011, with public sector budget cuts and national debt issues continuing to curb W. European investment, according to Canalys' latest report. 

Making up for the public sector is the financial services industry and its current spending increases (in a bid to reduce latency and minise highly-publicised security breaches).

Gartner suggests the adoption of Systematic Workload Reprovisioning (SWR) to counter advanced threats compromising the host OS at deep level, particularly when it comes to dealing with high-risk workloads. 

SWR is relatively straightforward-- it involves the periodic rebuilding and reprovisioning of server and desktop workloads from a high-assurance base image file library. Through workload restoration to a high-assurance state, security professionals can proactively remove deeply rooted malware, making sure undetected intrusions don't continue Read more...

Security Market Secures Rebound

Gartner reports the WW security software market grows by 12% Y-o-Y in 2010, reaching revenues of $16.5Bn (from 2009 revenues of $14.7Bn). 

This was something of an awaited rebound for a security market hit by a sharp fall in 2009 due to a slow economy and tight IT budgets. 

Security products are going through a a period of rapid evolution-- in both their delivery models (security as a service is growing in popularity) and technologies. The current picture portrays key vendors expanding their product portfolios, buying companies (often startups developing Read more...

A Security Vulnerability Reporting Standard

The Industry Consortium for Advancement of Security on the Internet (ICASI) launches version 1.0 of its security report framework, allowing vendors to share software vulnerability data more easily. 

The Common Vulnerability Reporting Framework (CVRF) is a free-to-use machine-readable XML-based reporting standard which ICASI says sorts out the different formats companies use to report and refer to discovered vulnerabilities across multiple product types.

The idea is that vendors adapt the CVRF, thus eliminating the need to translate between incompatible Read more...
