When Is It Important to Keep Records of HDD Duplication and Sanitization Efforts?

by Perry Solomon

Deploying, recommissioning, decommissioning or otherwise managing hard disk drives is an integral part of efficient IT management but the task is not always an easy one. For instance, when computers and laptops are rolled out on a massive scale, tracking which drives have been cloned and which drives are still blank can be challenging. In addition, sanitization as a precursor to recommissioning or decommissioning drives may require an audit trail in heavily regulated industries such as the financial sector, healthcare and government agencies where regulations and penalties for non-compliance can be strict.

An audit trail is a time-stamped record of activities that occur either electronically or on paper, and whether you’re in for a surprise or scheduled audit,producing accurate records of the sanitization process executed, the drive model name, and the drive’s serial number can be the difference between peace of mind and pandemonium.

Since the 1990s, industries have faced new regulations that include accountability for disposing of confidential information properly:

  • Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA)
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
  • Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SBA)

To help simplify tracking, hard disk drive duplicators with logging capability allow managers to automatically track drives by serial number and

process, which can prevent a blank hard drive from being deployed or worse, an un-sanitized hard drive from being deployed, reused or discarded.

Aleratec HDD Duplicators with Logging

Aleratec offers six new hard disk drive duplicators for IDE/SATA and SSD drives with real-time logging to clone up to 24 or sanitize up to 25 drives. Progress monitoring and logging let you view and print records of the sanitization methods used, model names, serial numbers of drives, speed and capacity. The new models include:

1:24 HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA High-Speed WL

1:16 HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA High-Speed WL

1:11 HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA High-Speed WL

Winning Entries of Aleratec’s My Makeshift Charging Hub Photo Contest

by Perry Solomon

Last month, we held Aleratec’s “My Makeshift Charging Hub” Online Photo Contest where we gave educators the opportunity to turn their homemade tablet charging stations into a chance to win prizes. The  contest was not only fun for everyone at Aleratec, but it was a real eye opener as we discovered the lengths educators go through to keep classroom tablets charged and ready for students. We received numerous creative submissions, from simple but messy charging hubs, to elaborate contraptions.  In the end, we left the final decisions up to the voters, and the following entries will take home 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize.

Prevention over Cure

Preserving digital image integrity with Aleratec’s 1:3 DVD/CD Flash Copy Tower

by Perry Solomon

Every so often a controversial photo or video circulates around the internet, only to discover later that the image was altered. Image manipulation is a growing problem because today’s editing techniques are so advanced that even experts are having a hard time discerning between what is real and what is fake. While this may be the source of anxiety for high profile celebrities, there are other areas where altered images can have more devastating effects. In forensic photography, for example, a doctored image could change the outcome of a trial. While there are software programs that can attempt to detect image manipulation, prevention is typically better than a cure and a safer method begins with how the original files are saved and stored.

Aleratec’s DVD/CD Flash Copy Tower stand-alone, multi-functional duplicator copies data stored on high capacity memory cards, such as image files used in professional photography, to non-alterable, non-volatile DVDs or CDs.

Aleratec’s 1:3 DVD/CD Flash Copy Tower duplicator copies documents and images from high capacity USB flash drives and functions as a DVD/CD duplicator with the ability to make a master copy of a DVD/CD and simultaneously duplicate the data on up to three DVD or CDs. One of its most important features, however, is its ability to copy data stored on memory cards, such as image files used in professional photography, to non-alterable, non-volatile DVDs or CDs. The key word here is “non-alterable.”

The 1:3 DVD/CD Flash Copy Tower duplicator is targeted toward fields where the integrity of a digital image is extremely important. Such fields include forensics, medical imaging and military and industrial photography where archived images should be an exact copy of what the Read more ›
