In January of 2016, Synetic was awarded a patent for its data sanitization platform known as the Virtual Data Annihilator, aka Virtual DAN. Virtual DAN sets Synetic apart from other IT Asset Disposition firms. Rather than pay licensing fees to a 3rd party software provider for certified data destruction on each device wiped, Synetic decided to innovate by creating our own platform to deliver Enterprise-class data erasure efficiently and cost effectively which in turn delivers greater value to our clients. Virtual DAN’s infinite scalability, and flexibility to deploy onsite, allows for custom tailored data destruction programs to meet the data security needs of any client.
Virtual Data Destruction, aka Data Sanitization, remains the preferred method for organizations seeking to recover maximum value from their decommissioned and off-network IT assets. While organizations can wipe data themselves, it is often more costly leveraging internal resources instead of a trusted 3rd party, and there is no 3rd party validation through vetted and audited quality control practices that data was fully eradicated to mitigate risk and comply with regulations.
Virtual DAN addresses the limitations and risks of the DIY method efficiently and cost effectively. Virtual DAN also gauges the health and reliability of each device which delivers greater value recovery because the secondary market trusts drives from Synetic. When drives fail Virtual DAN’s health test due to bad physical sectors, there is still the possibility that data exists that can’t be wiped, and the drive is shredded. Synetic offers both Virtual and Physical Data Destruction Services under the Data Annihilator brand.
