Data erasure on HDDs
The deletion of HDDs is done by physically overwriting all areas of the hard disk. The use of professional software ensures that all protected and hidden areas such as HPA, DCO, FAT etc. are completely overwritten. All data and allocations are overwritten and are irretrievably deleted. As an additional security criterion, a verification of the data carrier as to the applied algorithm and its application is carried out.
Data carriers that cannot be 100% overwritten due to bad sectors or other adverse effects are automatically sent to be shredded.
We offer deletion algorithms at various levels of security such as:
- HMG Infosec with a 1x overwrite
- US DOD 5220-22 M with a 3x overwrite
- US DOD 5220-22 ECE with a 7x overwrite
