Data Shredder for Mac 2017 Offers Military Grade Data Deletion

No Comments

Miami, Florida – ProtectStar today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Data Shredder for Mac 2017, their new military grade data deletion tool for macOS. The app allows users to drag-and-drop files, folders, hard drives, (even external drives) to the app’s shredding area and securely erase the data with just a click of the “Shred” button.

Using the same data shredding techniques as their popular Data Shredder for iOS app, ProtectStar’s Data Shredder for Mac securely and efficiently deletes data using methods that meet and exceed government, military, and industry standards. The app eliminates any chance for data reconstruction, even by government agencies.

“Many users believe that when they delete files from their Mac’s hard drive, that they’re gone for good. The truth is, the files can be recovered using any one of a number of macOS disk utilities. That’s due to the way computers ‘delete’ files. They don’t really remove the data, they simply mark the files as deleted,” says Chris Bohn, CEO of ProtectStar. “Files aren’t really gone forever until that storage space is overwritten using secure deletion algorithms. Data Shredder for Mac securely overwrites the ‘deleted’ files using patented security standards, making it impossible to recover any deleted data.”

Data Shredder for Mac is available in two versions. The Professional Edition offers 11 different data shredding methods, completely wiping all free space and overwriting the storage area, to completely shred all of the stored data. The Data Shredder Military Edition offers 18 erasing methods in total, while also offering advanced deletion reports.

Data Shredder Professional Edition Features Include:
* Compatible with all Mac models
* Deletes files, folders, hard drives, external drives, USB Sticks, SD cards, and more
* Secure data deletion up to the top-secret security standard level
* A detailed deletion report provides evidence of deletion
* Compatible with Solid State Drives (SSD) and Flash memory
* Full Drag & Drop support
* Includes 1 year of technical support and free upgrades
* 24/7 support via e-Mail

Data Shredder Military Edition Includes the above features, plus:
* Advanced deletion reports
* Enhanced military deletion methods

Data Shredder for Mac Professional uses certified deletion algorithms, including: DoD 5220.22-M ECE, Peter Gutmann, DoD 5220.22-M, HMG Infosec No.5, German BSI-2011-VS, US Army AR380-19 and more. Data Shredder for Mac Military Edition uses those same algorithms. Plus, it makes use of enhanced military deletion methods like NATO standard, US Navy NAVSO P-5239-26 (MFM & RLL), USAF AFSSI-5020, BSI TL-03423 and CSEC ITSG-06. Each algorithm has been analyzed by independent authorities and organizations to ensure it really does what it promises, which is destroy data beyond any hope of restoration.

Both editions have integrated the high-secure Advanced Secure Deletion Algorithm developed by ProtectStar Inc. in 2017. The new deletion method also encrypts the blocks completely using the 256-bit AES (Advanced Encryption Algorithm) and uses high-quality random numbers generated based on Feder Information Processing Standards (FIPS).

Data Shredder for Mac 2017 is one of the easiest to use, yet most secure ways available to completely erase files from any Mac drive, allowing users to remain secure in the knowledge their data can never be recovered by anyone. Drag-and-drop, and press a button. It doesn’t get much easier than that.

System Requirements:
* Mac OS 10.11 or higher
* Supports macOS 10.13 macOS High Sierra
* 64-bit processor
* 50 MB

Mapdiva releases Ortelius 2 – Pro Map Design Software for the Mac

No Comments

Indianapolis, Indiana – US-Australia-based developer Mapdiva today releases Ortelius 2 creative map design software for the Mac. This unique professional creativity app is a hybrid that lies somewhere between a vector drawing program, such as Illustrator(TM) and a geographic information system (though it’s decidedly not GIS). Ortelius adds tailored functionality for cartography, such as connectable track tools, powerful style engine, library of expert styles and map symbols, and robust templates.

If you’ve ever tried making a map in a standard vector drawing program, you know how tedious it can be. Or, perhaps you’ve lamented how difficult it is to make publication-quality map graphics in a GIS. Ortelius automates many of the tedious tasks in manual cartography with a clear eye towards high-quality graphics, so you can focus your creative energy on content and design.

Ortelius offers three workflows for map-making:
1. Design hand-crafted maps using expert styles, symbols, and special cartography drawing tools.
2. Create maps from beautifully designed world, regional and country templates to customize and make your own.
3. For advanced users, build maps from shapefiles as a starting point for your next creation.

“We’ve modernized Ortelius top to bottom,” say geographer and co-founder, Dr. Jill Saligoe-Simmel, “from under-the-hood performance to forward-facing features like connectable tracks and automatic junctions.” For Mapdiva’s more advanced users, Ortelius 2 includes the highly-requested ability to align layers when importing georeferenced shapefile map data.

Ortelius uses layers to organize your map’s content. Draw roads on a roads layer, rivers on another layer, points of interest on another, and view them all stacked together. Layers are expandable and can be easily reorganized.

From cased (think double-line) roads to patterned fills, Ortelius’ powerful style engine lets you build expert stacked styles which can be as simple or complex as you desire. It comes with a library of over 1800 pre-built styles and map symbols, and these can be copied or cloned to use as a starting point for your own creations. Since it’s a full-fledged vector drawing program, you can even create your own graphics and map symbols, and save them to your user library to use again with future projects. Ortelius’ workflows are thoughtful and efficient, and features like ‘Global Styles’ let you quickly make changes across multiple objects at once.

Importantly, Ortelius lets you draw to scale. For example, 1-inch on your drawing canvas can equal 1-ft or 1-mile/km on the ground. That’s perfect for maps, landscape plans, floorplans and even technical drawings. Beyond crisp maps and graphics, it also has the ability to import and edit raster images. You can export vector PDF and a variety of image formats at a multiple scales and resolutions. Export your entire map, portions of the map in “slices”, individual layers, or selected objects.

Ortelius 2 is available today from Mapdiva.com for $149.99 (USD)/yr annual license or $399 (USD) perpetual license. It is made exclusively for MacOS. A free trial, get started videos, tutorials and multi-lingual user guide are available on their website.
