Features

Secure Delete

CrashPlan PROe feature - Secure delete enables customers in private cloud environments to permanently remove archives that have expired from cold storage in a way that meets Department of Defense requirements for data removal. Secure delete also minimizes data remanence on enterprise server hard drives that may be discarded or recycled by a third-party vendor. Administrators can choose from several secure delete options including triple pass of zeroes, ones, and random characters (default); single pass of zeroes; single pass of ones; or single pass of random characters. Full information is available in our Secure Delete article.

Control Alert Emails And Console Display

CrashPlan PROe feature - You can now choose to enable or disable whether administrator alerts are generated and either sent via email or displayed in the administration console under Alerts. In addition, Settings > Reporting has been renamed to Settings > Notifications to better reflect the settings contained on the page.

Multi-User Support For ArchiveResource API

CrashPlan PROe feature - The ArchiveResource API call now accepts a list of user ids, rather than only a single user id, to make scripting easier.

  • When viewing a long list of items in the administration console, selected items now remain selected when scrolling.
