Wipe Hard Drives Securely to Keep Your Data Safe
Securely Wiping Your Hard Drive Protects You from Data Recovery
Simply deleting files or even formating your drive doesn’t mean the data is gone. It can still be recovered using freely-available software tools. Only by overwriting the data can you ensure it’s permanently and securely erased. WipeDrive has been certified by the NSA to show that when you wipe hard drive data with WipeDrive is forensically unrecoverable.
WipeDrive’s 3 Pass Wipe Completely Erases Your Hard Drive
For extra assurance your data is gone you can wipe hard drive data multiple times. WipeDrive provides several wipe patterns including the DoD 5220.22-M wipe pattern used by many branches of the U.S. Government.

Major IT shift from physical destruction to software wiping
Most fortune 500 companies still physically destroy their hard drives. This archaic and UN-environmental form of data destruction pulverizes drives into dust. Sure the data is gone but there are major downsides to grinding when compared to wiping your data.
|Data Security||– No data is recoverable.||– No data is recoverable.|
|Secure Chain of Custody||– Chain of custody required and typically includes external employees, increasing risk of data compromise.||– No chain of custody necessary. Wipes can be done remotely without moving the computer.|
|Environmental Impact||– Produces landfill bi-products that are not easily absorbed or re-incorporated into the environment.||– Wiped drives can be easily and securely re-used within the organization or donated to charitable causes.|
|Cost||– Roughly $8-10 per drive.||– Typically less than half the cost of physical destruction.|
|Logistical efficiency||– Drives must be removed and securely transported to the destruction site.||– Drives can be wiped remotely without moving computers or removing hard drives.|
|Secure Audit Trail||– Reports vulnerable to human error and manipulation.||– Reports impossible to manipulate. Audit trail automatically logs comprehensive drive identifiers and information.|
