Digital Photocopiers Loaded With Secrets

8th December 2010 11:16:08

Data on digital copiers need to be secured, FTC warns

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is advising business not to overlook information security measures for their digital copiers.

In a recently released brochure, the FTC advises businesses to expand their information security plans to include protecting data contained in digital copiers. "If the data on your copiers gets into the wrong hands, it could lead to fraud and identity theft", the agency warned.

Digital copiers made for businesses usually have hard drives that could contain sensitive information, the agency said.

"The hard drive in a digital copier stores data about the documents it copies, prints, scans, faxes or emails. If you dont take steps to protect that data in can be stolen from the hard drive, either by remote access or by extracting the data once the drive has been removed."

The consumer protection agency recommends that businesses take a number of steps to secure the data on their digital copiers.

First, a business should inform its IT personnel that they need to manage and maintain the copier as they would a computer or a server.

Second, when a business buys or leases a copier, it should evaluate the options for securing the data on its hard drive, including the encryption or overwriting features that will be used. A business should take advantage of all of the copiers security features. This should include securely overwriting the entire hard drive at least once a month.

Third, when a business returns or disposes of a copier, it should investigate whether it is possible to have the hard drive removed and destroyed, or to overwrite the data on the hard drive. Generally, it is advisable for a skilled technician to remove the hard drive to avoid the risk of rendering the machine inoperable, the agency said.

SSD family to offer increased ruggedness and reliability for mobile and desk-based users

Wareham, 16 February, 2010, Stonewood today launched its solid state drive (SSD) family, including an external Eclypt Freedom drive and an internal Eclypt drive, both of which will offer increased ruggedness and reliability for mobile and desk-based users. Customers can now choose between either rotating or SSD drives depending on their needs and individual requirements. The encrypted hard drives are the only ones which are CESG approved for use by the government.

"With 29 million people affected by data loss in 2009 and this figure set to increase this year, encrypting data has never been more important. SSD technology offers customers increased ruggedness, as with no moving parts it is inherently able to withstand more extreme conditions than rotating drives," commented Chris McIntosh, CEO Stonewood. "Our Eclypt internal and external drives are the only hardware solutions to offer CAPS accreditation for military and government use, thus making them the most secure and reliable SSD family available. By launching this range we are providing an essential capability for our customers and it will undoubtedly be of particular interest to our military community." Other advantages of SSD include fast data access, low power consumption (generating little heat), lighter weight, longer battery life and faster start-up. The external drive is available with capacities of 160GB and 256GB and the internal drive is available in capacities of 128GB and 256GB. The drives are manufactured by Intel and Toshiba.

The Eclypt drives are the first in a range of SSD products. Stonewood is developing an even more rugged member of the family for use in extreme environments that will be released later in the year. This product will be tested fully to industry standards with full verified vibration, temperature and shock specifications.

The internal Eclypt SSD drives are available immediately. The external Eclypt Freedom SSD 160GB drive is also available immediately with the 250GB drive available later this month. The SSD family pricing starts from

SanDisk G3 SSD Family

29th April 2009 14:17:31

SanDisk G3 SSDs means Greater Speed:
Users of PC applications equipped with SanDisk G3 SSDs will notice the significant difference from the moment they power up their machines. The great speed manifests itself in a number of ways: Reading and writing data, booting the operating system and launching applications. Not only do users of laptops with SanDisk G3 SSDs get started faster, they keep going in the same way. SanDisk G3 SSDs stand to get five times as fast as the fastest 7,200 RPM HDDs, clocking in at up to 40,000 vRPM(2,5) and anticipated sequential performance of 200MB/s read and 140MB/s write4. Three key features developed by SanDisk enable this exciting performance: ExtremeFFSTM, a new SSD algorithm, allows random write performance to potentially improve by as much as 100 times over conventional algorithms; reliable 43nm multi-level cell (MLC) all bit-line (ABL) NAND flash; and SanDisks new SSD controller, which ties together the NAND and the algorithm.
