Tabernus Receives Military Approval for Solid State Drive Erasure Solution

LIGHTNING RELEASES — TX, August, 2014- Data Erasure software provider, Tabernus, has announced that the United Kingdom Ministry of Defense (MOD) group has formally approved the use of Tabernus software for erasing and complete removal of data for solid state drives (SSD).

Defence InfoSec Product Co-Operation Group UK (DIPCOG) approves products and services as being suitable for use specifically by the Ministry of Defence. DIPCOG recommended products are also used by end users in government, public, and private sectors. DIPCOG has formally approved the latest version of Tabernus Solid State Drive Erasure software revisions v7 series.

After the successfully passing solid state testing in fall of 2013, this really validated our assertion that erasing solid-state drives is a solvable problem. However, this recent approval from DIPCOG endorses Tabernus’ ability to successfully erase solid state drives for consumer level and enterprise level applications,” comments Joe Mount, Vice President of Global Sales.

Over the past year, Tabernus has submitted its erasure solution for solid-state drives to testing methodology offered by ADISA (Asset Disposal Information Security Alliance) and performed by the Information Security Research Group University of South Wales. The SSD claims testing from ADISA is the culmination of industry and government experts working towards a common test methodology that is robust and repeatable.

With the growth of SSD products in the market, Tabernus continues to invest in more development along with certifications and approvals to authenticate our secure Solid State Drive Erasure Feature. This stamp of approval from DIPCOG makes our SSD feature the most approved and secure feature in the marketplace,” continues Mount.
