Unlike degaussing and physical destruction, which render the storage media unusable, data erasure removes all information while leaving the disk operable.
Data erasure is a software-based method of overwriting the data that aims to completely destroy all electronic data residing on a hard disk drive or other digital media by using zeros and ones to overwrite data onto all sectors of the device. By overwriting the data on the storage device, the data is rendered unrecoverable and achieves data sanitization.
In fact, data erasure should take place before physical destruction processes to ensure no data fragment can be recovered – as being required by top security standards.
Permanent data erasure goes beyond basic file deletion commands, which only remove direct pointers to the data disk sectors and make the data recovery possible with common software tools.
To Achieve Data Erasure, the Software Must:
Data Terminator make sure data erasure process meet highest security standards. To achieve such commitment, we partner with best providers whose products and solutions are certified with:
DT provides work processes which are ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001: 2004 certified, for high quality Secure Electronic Data Erasure Services on any storage media such as PATA, SATA, or SCSI. There are many options of erasure. One of it is Software Erase, by overwriting the sector of the disk with a new value with certain amount of passes to ensure that the data is harder to recover. But we also provides a better option than software erase, “Secure Erase” which initiate the drive internal secure erase command, security erase unit, based on the ATA specification by 18+ Certifications and Regulatory Bodies.
