The Most Highly Certified

WipeDrive is the world's most highly-certified data erasure software

WipeDrive software is the most highly-certified wiping technology on the planet. WipeDrive is the only data erasure tool 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.

Why Is Certification Important

Certification vs. Compliance

There is a significant difference between software claiming to comply with standards and the National Security Agency (NSA) certifying compliance. We don’t believe our customers should have to verify that our software does what we claim, so we are Certified by NIAP to EAL 4, higher than any other software wiping tool. This certification took over a year and cost literally hundreds of thousands of dollars, but they verify that WipeDrive works the way it is designed.

When you see wiping software that claims to “comply” with standards, all it means is that they believe they comply but there is no outside body that has independently verified and authenticated that they comply.

CPA Certification

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is the UK’s authority on cyber security. The NCSC has access to some of the most sophisticated capabilities available to government. Their main purpose is to reduce the cyber security risk to the UK by improving its cyber security and cyber resilience.

NCSC uses CPA standards to evaluate commercial off-the-shelf products, and their developers, against published security and development standards.

A security product that passes assessment is awarded Foundation Grade certification. This means the product is proven to demonstrate good commercial security practice and is suitable for lower threat environments.
