Acronis Drive Cleanser Adds Vista Support

March 14, 2007, Burlington, MA — Acronis, Inc. (www.acronis.com/en-us/), a technological leader in storage management software, announced that award-winning Acronis Drive Cleanser 6.0, a disk wiping and security application, now supports Microsoft Vista.

"Acronis Drive Cleanser has been honored on multiple occasions as the best disk wiping application on the market," said Walter Scott, CEO of Acronis. "The addition of Vista support means that now users of virtually all versions of the desktop Windows OS can, with complete confidence, delete the data from any partition or the entire hard disk and know the data will never, ever be resurrected for purposes such as industrial espionage or identity theft. The product is used by corporate customers and consumers to wipe an old hard disk before it is disposed of or repurposed as additional storage."

The program supports multiple data destruction algorithms, which define how and how many times data is overwritten. They include several national data destruction standards:

  • American: DoD 5220.22-M
  • American: NAVSO P-5239-26 (RLL)
  • American: NAVSO P-5239-26 (MFM)
  • German: VSITR
  • Russian: Russian Standard, GOST P50739-95

Two additional, more powerful, pre-defined algorithms are included. They were developed by top information security experts Peter Gutmann and Bruce Schneier. In addition, the program makes it possible for IT managers to create their own data-wiping algorithms.

Acronis Disk Cleanser is available directly from the Acronis Web site and from selected resellers. Suggested list price is $49.99
