How to Wipe Away Sensitive Files from Mac OS X

stellar-wipe-mac_148958Mac OS X has been designed with advanced features and technologies to constantly monitor and update your Mac. However, with the free availability of an OS X Mavericks upgrade, security has become a challenge. With organizations which use Mac for running their business, security is an ever-increasing concern. Issues like virus attacks, unauthorized access, and mishandling of such devices cause some serious concern. In addition, issues like stolen systems could prove to be a nightmare if the system contains some confidential data.

In such a situation it becomes very important to ensure data safety. You can avoid such security threats by securely erasing files from Mac that contains confidential or sensitive information.

Call Me a Dinosaur!

touchpcPC technology is truly amazing.  Apple has just released its watch computer with virtually every app you might want, and others that you may download.  Everyone has a tablet and is coveting an iPhone 6, in order to be fully “computerized” wherever s/he may be on the planet.  We can draw, paint, develop a graph or chart in a minute, and have complex statistical formulas spit out data and analysis within seconds.  Voice commands allow disabled individuals to write and email, and Siri is an amazing personal assistant.

I love the new technology and have participated in it almost as rapidly as it has become available.  I have read and viewed amazing text and videos about technology of the future and am an avid follower of all technology “shows” that present the newest innovations.  It’s exciting!
