Credit Card Company Implements Remote Disk Wiping for Computers Located in Multiple Branch Offices Around the World.


M Credit Card Company requires a new disk wiping system. M Credit Card Company has many branch offices, and they need a solution that can wipe disks in different locations around the world.

Due to a high number of branch offices, data disposition service companies cannot cover all of them easily. Therefore, computers must be transported to the headquarters, and this option poses a huge security risk.

  • Ability to wipe multiple disks simultaneously
  • Detailed reporting and monitoring of wiping process
  • Easy implementation and deployment

Secudrive offers a remote disk wiping solution that is incredibly easy to implement, deploy. and initiate. The system fulfills their requirement for a solution that can wipe their disks in remote locations while monitoring the process through the network. They only need one person to wipe hundreds of disks simultaneously with only a couple of clicks.


Disks must be wiped throughout M Credit Card Company’s multiple branch offices and the company wants a convenient way to manage the process from a centralized location. M Credit Card Company wants to wipe all decommissioned computers immediately, without having to physically move them while containing confidential data. Wiped disks then can be moved safely to storage or to service companies for permanent disposition or recycling.


The customers can wipe their machines themselves before they send them to L Co. for recycling or permanent disposition. This takes risk of misplacing disks and of data theft, out of the equation as the entire process is internal. The solution is incredibly easy, and can be implemented remotely.


M Credit Card Company needs to have detailed reporting, in addition to monitoring capabilities, especially if they plan to wipe from a centralized location. Since the data contained in these machines are comprised of private and business information about financials and personal information, M Credit Card Company will require confirmation that the data has been completely wiped before they reuse, recycle, or transport the disk for permanent disposal.


The entire installation and deployment process can be done remotely by using an Active Directory (AD) GPO. The disk wiping software is then installed remotely onto M Credit Card Company’s machines, allowing the administrator to wipe them when ready. The administrator requires neither log-on to the machines nor a BIOS set-up before the disk wiping process.
