Press Release - CEA Sustainability Report
CEA Recognizes Aleratec for Sustainability Efforts Alongside Google, Microsoft, Intel, Dell, and Hewlett Packard Among Others
Chatsworth, CA – September 18, 2013 – Aleratec Inc., a leading digital duplication technology manufacturer with customers worldwide, today announced that the company has been included in the CEA 2013 Sustainability Report, a comprehensive report generated by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® that illustrates the consumer electronic industry's overall progress in advancing environmental initiatives. Aleratec is one of several industry leaders named in the prestigious report for their sustainability efforts, including Google, Microsoft, Intel, Dell, Hewlett Packard, Sony, Samsung Electronics, Panasonic, LG Electronics, Best Buy, and Nintendo.
Aleratec has redefined sustainability by allowing consumers to safely shred electronic data while also protecting sensitive information such as financial records, social security numbers, and medical files. As the report states:
"Aleratec's hard disk drive duplicators permanently delete sensitive information from used hard drives. Using Secure Erase or third-party-certified overwrite technology, the data are completely sanitized, thus preventing confidential information from falling into the wrong hands. And the duplicators offer a more sustainable alternative to hard disk drive destruction."
With both sustainability and data security in mind, Aleratec first began building disk drive sanitizers in 2004 and is the only manufacturer of such solutions to have third-party certification of data destruction by one of the leading independent computer forensic organizations. This method of data destruction and erasure also meets the criteria of the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Computer Security Center 800-88 initiative which was sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security.
"Our company's commitment to sustainability and security has always been and will continue to be one of our top priorities," said Perry Solomon, president and CEO of Aleratec. "We are incredibly honored that the Consumer Electronics Association has recognized our continuous efforts to create green alternatives for consumers, and we take great pride in our environmentally progressive solutions."
