Securely Wiping Your Hard Drive Protects You From Data Theft.

Simply deleting files or even formatting 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 as wiping software that makes data forensically unrecoverable.

NIST Wipe Pattern

WipeDrive’s “NIST 800-88r1 purge/clear” wipe pattern follows the guidelines outlined in “NIST Special Publication 800-88 Revision 1” for supported media types. This includes doing the following:

  • Removing any device configuration that prevents access to the full drive, including Device Configuration Overlay (DCO), Host Protected Area (HPA), or Accessible Max Address.
  • Wiping the media with the strongest wiping technique available on the drive.
  • Verifying at least 10% of the media (spanning the entire drive) to ensure that the wiping technique succeeds.
  • Categorizing the wipe as “Purge”, “Clear”, or “Unknown”, based on the strength of the wiping technique that is used.

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.

Completely Erase Your Hard Drive For Information Security

WipeDrive erases 100% of your data, operating system and programs. Erased data is impossible to recover, even with the most advanced tools. According to the NSA, data erased by WipeDrive "is permanently destroyed as to make any type of forensic data recovery impossible."

Highly-Certified Hard Drive Erasing Software

WipeDrive is the only wiping software in the world certified to EAL 2+ criteria. Certified by the Common Criteria Standard, WipeDrive meets most major national and international certifications and standards. Simply put, it's the best wiping technology available today.

WipeDrive’s NIST Pattern Completely Erases Your Drive

The NIST 800:88 R1 erasure pattern implemented by WipeDrive will securely erase every byte/sector on your storage device. The NIST erasure pattern has been certified by Common Criteria and ADISA. And is the only pattern compliant with solid state drives (SSDs) and flash-based storage mediums.

Wipe SSDs (Solid State Drives)

Need to wipe solid state drives? Since 2011, WipeDrive has been a market leader in comprehensively wiping SSD drives by removing security freeze locks to ensure there are no hidden or locked areas of the drive that are missed. Erasing SSDs is a priority for many companies because they retain their value better than traditional platter hard drives allowing them to re-coupe part of their cost or re-use the drives internally. WipeDrive can wipe any SSD drive that is free from manufacturer defects.

Cost Savings

WipeDrive is typically a fraction of the cost of physically destroying hard drives and other storage hardware. We'll even match or beat the price of competitive software offerings.
