As new data recovery technologies become more sophisticated, confidential information stored on malfunctioning hard drives has never been more vulnerable to third-party exploitation. Typical warranties request failed hard drives be returned to the manufacturer during replacement.

This leaves customers with a difficult choice to make: risk sensitive data falling into the wrong hands or keep your hard drive a practice that may violate many existing standard warranty agreements.

BCDVideo is now offering a Keep Your Hard Drive warranty to give customers from small businesses to large agencies complete control over their data and hard drive disposal while preserving all the benefits of the BCDVideo standard hardware warranty on failed hard drives. While still possible to return your drive, the Keep Your Hard Drive warranty waives the requirement to return failed drives.

Key Benefits

  • Greater Security– Your sensitive data and hard drive never have to leave your control. Retaining physical possession of a failed hard drive is an effective way to help ensure the security of classified, proprietary, or sensitive data. Tracking failed hard drives in-transit becomes a non-issue. Covers multiple drives in a system and multiple failures.
  • Compliance Enablement– Help comply with current data privacy regulations and internal company policies by ensuring sensitive information on your hard drives is not compromised.
  • Risk Mitigation– Proper control of sensitive data can mitigate the risk of expensive civil liability by helping to prevent potential exposure of confidential customer data or intellectual property.
