Data Erasure Software

The DataSweeper line of total data-erasure products provides a reliable software-based method to completely wipe data from hard drives. The products conform to a total of 13 data-erasure standards, including eight global standards starting with the US Department of Defense protocol. Reliable data erasure is achieved with a user-friendly interface and simple three-step operation. Drives wiped with DataSweeper can be reused.

Incomplete data erasure can lead to many problems, including
  • Leakage of information
  • Compliance violations
  • Loss of trust
  • Unnecessary cost increases

The data on HDDs inside PCs or servers obtained through resale or lease cannot be completely erased instantly using a degausser. Also, due to sloppy management, data erasure is being done with free erasure software that does not completely scrub data or does not generate any record in the form of a clear erasure certificate. Companies are increasingly faced with unnecessary costs because of information leaks and compliance violations, and recently there have been reports of personal or confidential information falling into the wrong hands when second-hand PCs are resold.
