Remote wiping technology Hard Disks

[For the DCinema business, this isn’t in the direct line of possible solutions…but good to know. The original article is at:
Secure Business Intelligence Magazine: Remote wiping technology introduced for Toshiba products]

The company said that Wipe can automatically invalidate a hard disk drive security key when its power supply is turned off, instantly making all data in the drive indecipherable. Also, copier and printer systems vendors can now use Toshiba’s Wipe technology to securely invalidate sensitive document image data by automatically erasing the SED’s internal encryption key.

This feature can be used prior to system disposal or re-purposing to ensure that private data never leaves the control of the responsible business unit or IT department.
