Secure Wiping

In some circumstances it is actually the intention to securely erase data: Selling old appliances, a former employee leaving the company, etc .;
It is important to delete company-sensitive data in a forensically correct way so that they can no longer be recovered with specialized techniques.

This process is also called “wiping” or “shredding” within the Digital Forensic world. A “wipe” is followed by a forensic verification of this process to check whether data¬†effectively can no longer be recovered.
From this moment on, it is safe to use the media bearer again without the risk of company-sensitive information leakage or where industrial espionage is possible. The media bearer is returned to a new state without a file system or operating system.

If desired, we can bring the media bearer back into operation by placing a file system of choice on it or even provide it with an operating system. A so-called ‘clean install’.
