Data sanitization services for your data centers and corporate end user devices.

Teraware Data Sanitization Platform, from Iron Mountain, is a world leading enterprise level data sanitization software. Developed to meet the need for industry compliance as related to data disposition on solid state and hard disk drives (SSDs and HDDs), Teraware specializes in the total sanitization of all electronic information from the data center to IT enterprise assets.

Teraware provides guaranteed, forensic-level data sanitization using a single workflow regardless of drive manufacturer or type. For HDDs, user selectable wipe methods are applied for drive sanitization based on your particular requirements. With SSDs, the software will automatically recognize the drives identity and apply appropriate processing to address both the logical and physical sanitization.

Teraware data sanitization services can be performed on drives in racks or laptops. Iron Mountain services include sanitizing loose drives in our facilities. In the data center, there is no requirement to disassemble racks before sanitization. Teraware also has the capability to perform remote data sanitization.
