Carahsoft, in conjunction with its vendor partners, sponsors hundreds of events each year, ranging from webcasts and tradeshows to executive roundtables and technology forums.
There is a significant difference between software claiming to be “in compliance” with standards and software that is “certified” by recognized security organizations. WhiteCanyon doesn’t believe its customers should have to verify that WhiteCanyon software performs as it claims. As a result, its flagship product WipeDrive is certified by the NSA-sponsored National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) to the EAL 4+ level, higher than any other software wiping tool (see http://www.niapccevs. org/st/vid10395/). This certification took over a year and cost literally hundreds of thousands of dollars. As part of the certification process, Booz Allen Hamilton reviewed the WipeDrive source code and ran extensive tests verifying its efficacy in permanently and securely erasing data. When you see wiping software that claims to “comply” with standards, all it means is that they believe they comply but there is no outside body that has independently verified and authenticated that they comply. Compliance with standards is typically a broad and vague claim that provides no substantiated or regulated statement about a program’s effectiveness.
