How does Barracuda Networks Manage Returned Device Drives?

Solution #00006382

Answer:
When a Barracuda Networks product is returned through a RMA, through the upgrade process, or by other means, Barracuda Networks erases data on all incoming disk drives, conforming to the United States Department of Defense Standard (DoD 5220.22-M). Barracuda Networks utilizes WipeDrive Pro v5 to permanently and securely erase data from hard drives.


WipeDrive Pro v5 is also used by the United States Department of Defense, and is an approved compliance wipe disk tool for HIPAA, Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the Patriot Act, and the Identify Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act. Additionally, Barracuda Networks employs a Garner HD-2 Data Elimination Degaussing System to eliminate dead drive data.
