Brisbane, Australia:  Kroll Ontrack, the leading provider of data recovery, ediscovery and information management products and services, today announced a new subscription-based pricing model for its industry leading enterprise data eraser solution, Ontrack® Eraser 4.0 . Starting at $99.95, the new model offers customers a simple and flexible way to meet the specific data erasing needs of their business by purchasing the solution directly from the Kroll Ontrack online shop.

A 2013 Ponemon Institute survey of small to midsize businesses (SMBs) in the United States revealed that 55 percent of respondents had experienced a data breach, almost all involving compromised electronic records that could have been protected had data been wiped. With the new subscription offering from Kroll Ontrack, companies can effectively erase data and prevent security breaches without the standard pay-per-erasure practice. Under the new model, customers can purchase Ontrack Eraser 4.0 for an unlimited number of users and data erasures for a full year.

“For small and medium-sized companies, the purchase price for data erasure software can be high. This, coupled with the traditional cost per erase model can put corporations over budget very quickly,” said Adrian Briscoe, general manager – APAC, Kroll Ontrack. “By providing our customers with a simple, flexible and affordable do-it-yourself option, we’re able to help corporations of all sizes protect their business.”

Kroll Ontrack is a subsidiary of Altegrity
