ZapDrive is a standard USB flash memory device with a built-in secure erase function. Click a button and ZapDrive completely wipes its entire 4 GB of flash memory. ZapDrive erases memory at the physical level – any file that is, or ever was, on the drive is erased, unrecoverable even by the best forensics analyst.
Use ZapDrive to move files between systems, and when you’re finished - zap it! With the push of a button, erase not just the files, but the memory itself. Nothing is left, even for the best forensics experts to find.
ZapDrive’s Secure Erase capability truly and irrevocably deletes your data.
Did you know deleting a file from a standard USB drive leaves the contents of the file in the flash memory? Even when you re-format the drive, the memory is unallocated but not erased - all of the personal, proprietary and restricted information you ever transferred to the drive remains… unless it was overwritten by other equally sensitive information!
For example, suppose you transfer a private document to your flash drive:
When you finish with the file, being security-minded, you delete the file from the flash drive AND you re-format the drive’s file system. Now the file is gone, right? Sure, but the contents of that file are still on the drive! Anyone who later uses the drive can read the contents of the deleted files with a simple hex editor.
Some tools may claim to overwrite or “shred” your drive’s unallocated memory but these techniques cannot guarantee the contents of your files are gone. The ONLY way to erase your files completely and forever is with ZapDrive.
Don’t leave behind remnants of private information - tax returns, photographs, personal correspondence – on a USB drive that can fall into the hands of someone who will exploit it. Don’t expose your company’s proprietary information – bid rates, strategies, research – to potential competitors by leaving it on a USB drive that is easily misplaced, lost, or stolen. And if you are concerned with HIPAA, PCI, and PII compliance, eliminate potential data breaches. Use ZapDrive to transfer your files and then ZAP IT and your USB drive is cleaner than factory fresh!
