ProtectStar Data Shredder for Microsoft Windows

ProtectStar Data Shredder for Microsoft Windows

ProtectStar Inc., an independent, globally operating IT and communications security company, has launched the final word in secure data removal from hard drives.

Almost everyone has heard the stories of sensitive private and corporate data found on apparently erased hard drives, stories that have become increasingly common in newspaper headlines, calling data security officers into the picture.
Although these hard drives had been deleted, reformatted and overwritten, sensitive info such as account balances, credit card numbers, business concepts, passwords, personal documents and even highly private minutes from general meetings were easy to reconstruct.
The result has been astonishment and dumbfounded reactions from those involved.

ProtectStar Data Shredder v1.0 is represents a new generation of data erasure programs. Other programs on the market may “delete” the data, but do not remove it permanently. Usually, only the contents of the file-allocation table (FAT) or the corresponding file header attribute on an NTFS partition is set, but the files and programs are still physically in place on the drive, and can still be recovered and accessed.

ProtectStar Data Shredder allows users to erase data permanently and irrevocably from hard drives and other media. This ensures that personal and confidential data can no longer fall into the wrong hands.

The main features that distinguish ProtectStar Data Shredder from other products:

• Secure erasure by recognized procedures
• Complete “ProtectStar Secure Deletion Algorithm” integration
• Complete integration in Windows Explorer and Windows recycle bin
• Secure erasure of free disk space
• Secure erasure of encrypted files and volumes
• Secure removal of temporary system files, internet cache, cookies etc.
• Data files are destroyed completely, not just marked for deletion
• Simple operation with intuitive, modern menu control
• Support for FAT32 and NTFS
• Compatible with Windows 98, NT, 2000, 2003 Server, XP, Vista

Specifically developed for ProtectStar Data Shredder, the ProtectStar Secure Deletion Algorithm runs through fifty erasure routines, and is completely integrated into this security solution.

ProtectStar Data Shredder v1.0 will be available on the market in February 2007.

ProtectStar™, the independent IT- and communication security expert active worldwide with corporate headquarters in Bradenton, USA and global representative offices offers services to its customers as a partner providing comprehensive IT security, consulting, and advice.

The ProtectStar™ Test Center, which has achieved world renown through the "ProtectStar™ AWARD", carries out thorough ongoing in-depth testing on security solutions offered by leading manufacturers. Due to their comprehensive specialist information, detailed test reports have already been made public at international road shows and via specialist publications.

ProtectStar™ is the first global IT security company to focus its attention on mobile terminals such as PDAs, cell phones and smart phones, as well as on their security testing and evaluation. ProtectStar™ is continually improving its security hole and defect detection measures in mobile terminals.

This has resulted in the emergence of ProtectStar™ Mobile Firewall. A highly efficient firewall for Windows mobile terminals. The ProtectStar™ Communication Suite has been conceived as a security communications programme with chat function. The final stage of the Programme will allow the direct transfer of highly encrypted chats, files, videos and speech from one computer to another, eliminating the need for a server switching between the two.

In order to improve its net product, ProtectStar™ set up the independent Intelligent Quality Management and Marketing (IQMM) department in London in 2005. This tests current and forward-looking IT security solutions using innovative quality controls and an effective sense-and-respond system.

The establishment of the charitable ProtectStar™ Foundation (www.protectstar-foundation.org) and Pixels4Help (www.pixels4help.org), the two most recent projects, round off the company's activities for the 2006/2007 financial year.
