CTDI’s exclusive Data Erasure Tool
Before a repaired and/or refurbished smart-phone returns to the customer, all personal data is deleted and the device is reset to factory default settings. In the past, this was done by erasure tools from external suppliers. Now the MCE engineering teams of Malsch and West Chester developed a CTDI exclusive data erasure tool named “BLITZ” (from the German for Lightning). BLITZ has various deletion methods including "Random Overwrite" and can safely remove all customer data at lightning speed. "This is a further step towards independence because we are no longer dependent on external suppliers," says Mario Huber, Lead Engineer MCE in Europe.
