NEWS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
D3 Granted New Patent for Data Destruction on Optical Media
July 13, 2010 Fort Myers, FL - Digital Data Destruction (D3, Inc.) today announced that it was granted a new patent on its method and process to safely destroy the digital data contained on Optical Discs. The patent award by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, # 7,753,762 adds to four previously awarded US and foreign patents in this exclusive niche. The new technology covered by this optical disc data destruction patent also anticipates a new more stringent National and International standard to destroy digital data due to emerging forensic recovery techniques. This patent covers processes and technology which will continue to insure complete and total destruction of clients’ data in an efficient and economical fashion while addressing the rapidly growing need to comply with the data destruction requirements of HIPAA, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, FACTA and Sarbanes-Oxley Federal legislation and the NIST standard as outlined in SP 800-88.
The patent claims allow D3 to exclusively employ several unique methods to destroy the digital information contained on optical discs independent of where the data resides on the specific type of media. Continuing unpublished work at eTriage and at other organizations has scientifically proven that many alternative processes currently used by commercial interests which rely on an antiquated paper shredding model or dimpling processes, keep significant amounts of data on the discs. Government or commercial interests using unsafe technology invite serious financial and legal liabilities. This new technology from D3 provides the industry with Tier 5 equipment which is beyond forensic recovery.
Dr. Hutchison, President and CTO of D3, Inc., said of this most recent patent award, “D3 continues to innovate and develop new processes and equipment which can be used to safely destroy digital data on electronic media, once that information is obsolete or has reached it’s end-of-life usefulness. ”
