O&O SafeErase 5 Workstation and Server Editions: Data security was never so quick
Berlin, 22nd March, 2011 – Using internationally recognized methods, O&O SafeErase deletes sensitive data so securely that a reconstruction, even with special software, is no longer possible. In the new version 5, an analysis function has also been integrated which searches a PC’s volumes for data that was deleted non-securely and for other potentially risky files, such as internet history and cookies. Upon completion of the analysis the server or workstation can be cleaned with just one click. SSDs are also automatically detected and deletion procedures set in motion through TRIM commands.
O&O SafeErase 5 Workstation and Server Editions are optimized for use in companies. The advanced report system and managing of lists for oft-used deletion procedures, as well as the simultaneous deletion of numerous volumes enhances the user-friendliness of O&O SafeErase yet further.
New and enhanced functions
Integrate Scripts: The command line version enables O&O SafeErase to integrate Scripts that can be run automatically. It is particularly suitable when using oft-repeated deletion procedures.
Delete an entire computer: All files, settings, applications and operating system are deleted so that a recovery is impossible. It is possible to delete the entire computer including the system partition without boot media. After restarting the system the deletion process begins automatically.
Delete numerous volumes simultaneously: For the very first time, O&O SafeErase 5 Workstation and Server Editions can simultaneously delete free disk space and partitions on different physical storage volumes. The deletion procedures occur parallel, unlike with the Professional Edition where they occur one after the other. This saves businesses much time and stress, especially when deleting large volumes.
Six deletion methods: Writing over data with zeros means less sensitive data can be deleted at great speed. In addition, O&O SafeErase offers a further five methods of deletion, each one differing in the amount of procedures and the type of overwriting employed. Along with standard deletion procedures used by the U.S. Departments of Defense (DoD) and the German Bundesamts für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik (BSI), the Gutmann Methods are also available, matching the highest security requirements and writing over data 35 times.
Internet Security: O&O SafeErase lists per browser all the stored information – such as cookies, form data and Internet histories – which can be safely deleted either individually or combined. Once deleted, no one can trace the Internet activity, and online accounts are protected from unauthorized access.
Support for multi-core processors: Deletions are hugely speeded up here as the program takes advantage of the entire performance resources of the computer.
Use O&O SafeErase without installation: For using O&O SafeErase on different servers and computers of a company, we recommend the Administrator Tool O&O BlueCon. O&O BlueCon contains O&O SafeErase and a variety of system rescue and security programs that an administrator needs daily. In addition, O&O BlueCon and all the programs contained in it can be run directly from CD. Since the Start CD from O&O BlueCon is based on Windows PE, not even a functioning Windows environment is required to use the product.
