Secure protection of your company data

You collect all the internal information, such as customer data, accounting and sales on your company servers. Even accumulated information gathered by regular backups over the years is stored in them. The volume of this data may therefore constitute an unmanageable risk. So please make sure that all data on your disused servers and computers are permanently removed before their disposal or return to a leasing

Six methods for your security

Choose from six different deletion methods depending on your needs. The methods of deletion differ in their number of runs and the overwrite process itself. Besides standardized deletion methods used by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) you can choose a complex mathematical method (Gutmann-Method), which is in line with the highest security requirements.

Permanent deletion of:

  • Files, folders and individual partitions

Migration to a new operating system
