Why Certification Matters

Permanently Remove Data, Making Any Data Recovery Impossible

There is a significant difference between software claiming to comply with standards and the National Security Agency (NSA) actually 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. Our software was designed with our most risk-adverse customers' input to create a disk wiping tool that is highly effiecient and provides the greatest security available.

Wipe Hard Drives Securely to Keep Your Organization's Data Safe

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.

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.

What is WipeDrive?

WipeDrive is the world leader in secure data destruction. WipeDrive allows corporations and government entities to permanently and securely erase data from hard drives, removable media, and mobile devices, providing a cost-effective, secure, and socially responsible way of recycling and retiring computer storage.

The world's most highly-certified wiping software

WipeDrive is the only wiping software in the world that meets NIAP's EAL4+ security standard and is approved by the U.S. Department of Defense. According to the NSA, data deleted with WipeDrive is "permanently destroyed as to make any type of forensic data recovery impossible."

WipeDrive meets or exceeds all major national and international regulatory and technical standards including:

  • Sarbanes-Oxley
  • HIPAA
  • Common Criteria Evaluation
  • FACTA standards
  • NIAP's EAL4+ security standard
  • U.S. Department of Defense 5220.22-M
  • CSEC ITSG-06

How can I use WipeDrive?

  • Manage your corporate storage hardware end-of-life cycle.
  • Multiple deployment methods allow you to wipe storage on individual computers, via a PXE configuration, or remotely.
  • Erase drives on computers in branch or remote locations before moving them.
  • Erase data center servers and loose drives
  • Erase copy machines/copiers

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.

Erase Hard Drives With WipeDrive

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 NIAP's EAL4+ 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.

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.

Wipe Copiers

Did you know many modern copiers store digital copies of the documents they process on internal storage? Hard drives in digital copiers pose a serious security risk. WipeDrive Enterprise solves this problem by erasing the data stored on digital copiers.

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.
