Helsinki, Finland, September 24, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- This week’s news opened new concerns among the global community of privacy-minded users, as recent attacks have shown how software supply-chain security (https://www.wired.com/story/ccleaner-malware-supply-chain-software-security/) can be compromised. Jetico, developer of best-in-class data wiping software (https://www.jetico.com/products/personal-privacy/bcwipe), reassures BCWipe users by recognizing the importance of this issue.
“For over 20 years, the core of Jetico business is to deliver reliably strong and trusted tools for superior data protection. Yet it’s equally important to set processes and controls to ensure the integrity of our products,” says Jetico CEO, Michael Waksman.
BCWipe contains an added layer of protection to detect unauthorized changes to the modules. BCWipe checks the digital signatures of critical modules, which will not load if they are compromised or modified by an unauthorized third party.
Mr. Waksman adds, “At Jetico we take supply-chain security very seriously - from birth to testing to distribution. Beyond strict access control, Jetico R&D consists of a focused and highly-selective team of our own in-house developers and testers.”
BCWipe is an advanced data deletion utility trusted by the U.S. Department of Defense for DoD wipe requirements, such as for cleaning up classified data spills (https://www.jetico.com/about-jetico/newsroom/828-data-spill-an-everyday-threat-to-national-security). BCWipe has proudly served the U.S. Defense Community for over 10 years - widely accepted as the de-facto standard to wipe files (https://www.jetico.com/products/personal-privacy/bcwipe) beyond forensic recovery.
Jetico’s data protection portfolio also includes BestCrypt, encryption software with no backdoors, along with a trusted recommendation by security guru Bruce Schneier (https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2015/06/04/microsoft-disk-encryption/).
Back in 2013, Jetico formally stated that BestCrypt has never included any backdoors or related weakness to the software, as well as publishing their source code (https://www.jetico.com/support/bestcrypt-development-kit).
