When you consider Drive Wiping there is significant differences between software claiming to comply with standards and actually certifying compliance.
We don’t believe our customers should have to verify that software does what we claim, so the software we use “White Canyon” is certified by the national cyber security centre, the UK’s authority on cyber security.
The Software we choose to use provides the greatest security available.
WipeDrive software is the most highly certified wiping technology on the planet. WipeDrive is the only data erasure software that has been certified to meet the NIAP’s (National Information Assurance Partnership) EAL 4+ Standard.
This rigorous, costly, and time-consuming certification was created by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National Security Agency (NSA) and is the most comprehensive certification currently available.
If you decide not to wipe a drive (for-reuse) and prefer the degaussing option then it is simply not enough to delete, reformat or overwrite sensitive information.
The only solution that guarantees 100% data destruction is to use a degausser this will render the drive totally inoperable but remain intact.
This process is achieved by passing the hard disk through a powerful magnetic field which in turn will rearrange the metallic particles completely removing any resemblance to the original data.
