What Is a Secure Erase USB Drive and What Are Its Advantages?

 

USB drives are among the most widely used and recognized forms of storage available. They are extremely easy to use and compatible with a huge range of devices, which is why you can find them in use in so many different applications. Although consumers frequently use USB drives, industrial users rely on them as well for secure, reliable, portable storage that can be used in rugged operating conditions. For all users, however, the risk of having data left on a USB drive is serious, and for industrial OEMs, failing to thoroughly erase a drive can have major consequences. That is where Secure Erase USB drives enter the picture. Continue reading for a look at what a Secure Erase USB drive is and what makes it an essential option for industrial users.

 

Secure Erase USB Drives

A Secure Erase USB drive has an internal feature that allows you to completely erase all of the data on the drive. The data may be thoroughly sanitized so that they cannot be recovered, or they may be completely overwritten with new data to prevent the old data from being accessed. There are several different kinds of technologies available that allow data to be erased from USB drives. When you are selecting a USB drive for an industrial application, make sure you understand the data erasing features and how to use them so that your drive can be wiped thoroughly clean.

 

Why Secure Erase Matters

Industrial users may have sensitive data on their USB drives. Everything from patient information in the healthcare field to classified government information used in military applications may be stored on these drives. It is not safe to simply discard a USB drive that has held this kind of sensitive data without first wiping it clean. Failing to do so can leave your critical data—as well as that of customers and clients who trusted you with their information— vulnerable.
