BitRaser, a trademark of Stellar Information Technology Pvt. Ltd., announces that its SSD and Mobile erasure software has received certification from ADISA (Asset Disposal and Information Security Alliance), an international accreditation body specializing in data risk management and data protection within asset retirement domain.
ADISA independently tested and validated data wiping capabilities of BitRaser Drive Eraser and BitRaser Mobile Eraser & Diagnostics software that specializes in secure sanitization of SSD and mobile devices respectively. Accreditation for the erasure software is among other coveted test and certifications such as NYCE, STQC and the likes that augment BitRaser as the preferred choice to meet data security and privacy compliance needs in line with CCPA, GDPR, HIPAA and other laws.
“The ADISA certification is yet another milestone for Stellar. This provides added assurance to enterprise service providers, government institutions, SMBs & individuals that our data erasure solutions are compliant with the most stringent & rigorous regulatory standards worldwide and ensure end-to-end security of their information. Globally, there has been a rise in the number of data breaches over the years, and new data protection regulations are being introduced. We are committed to deliver best data erasure solution to meet the rapidly changing data security needs of industries world-wide, ” said Sunil Chandna, CEO, Stellar.
“The Product Claims Test is an independent validation of software overwriting tools. We took a claim made about BitRaser and tested that in a controlled laboratory environment using forensic techniques aligned to the ADISA Test Level 1. The media tested was a SSD and iPhone with no user data being able to be recovered after the test,” said Dr. Andrew Blyth, head, ADISA Test Lab.
ADISA Product Testing & Validation Methodology
The test conducted by ADISA on SSD drive using BitRaser Drive Eraser validates that the software, when used in accordance with the spec (NIST 800-88 standard), sanitizes data on SSD as outlined in ADISA test. The ADISA certification process is multi-tier and requires testing a SSD drive vs. known ADISA data threats and residue after it has been securely overwritten by BitRaser. The ADISA Threat Matrix defines a series of capabilities and risks that various threat agents can pose on the security of a device.
Similarly, ADISA product claims test method was used for testing of BitRaser Mobile Eraser and Diagnostics. The process involved erasure of iPhone 8 by using BitRaser tool in accordance with the specs to wipe mobile devices. The test methodology verified effectiveness of the software vs. data privacy threats posed by a slew of threat actors. ADISA test validated and certified BitRaser Mobile Eraser and Diagnostics as a secure sanitization tool for mobile devices.
It is a tool for erasing SSD, HDD, laptop, desktop, server and mobile devices (Android and iOS) as per international standards such as NIST 800-88, DoD 3 & 7 Passes, HMG. The software generates tamperproof certificates and reports of erasure that are cloud accessible and serve as an immutable audit trail for meeting compliance with global data privacy laws such as GDPR, CCPA, GLB, SOX, HIPAA, ISO27001, PCI DSS. It also brings built-in media diagnostic capabilities to ascertain health and functional state of storage and mobile devices. BitRaser is an innovation by Stellar, data care experts since 1993. Stellar is best known for data recovery, data erasure, mailbox conversion, and file repair software and services. Its solutions are trusted by more than 3 million individuals and Fortune 500 companies globally.
