Why do you need data wiping? If not thoroughly cleaned, residual data known as Data Remanence, continues to exist after common activities, such as ‘deleting’ or moving a file.


Top Security Organizations Trust Jetico

Standard file deletion only removes references to files while the contents remain intact on your hard drive in various places like free space and file slack. Confidential files you intended to erase could easily be restored with widely available undelete tools.

Wiping is a term used to describe the process of shredding contents of a file or disk space beyond recovery. Routine use of wiping tools can remove the pain of Data Remanence and truly protect your sensitive data from unwanted eyes.

Keep your data safe and out of the wrong hands… Contact us to get started today!

How to Permanently Delete Files with BCWipe

BCWipe by Jetico is the most powerful and trusted data wiping utility, engineered for a wide range of users: from experts at large organizations handling national security to people at home concerned with personal privacy.

Wiping solutions from Jetico securely erase all traces of unwanted data beyond recovery.

Use BCWipe to wipe files selectively on active systems, such as for cleaning up data spills.

Selective wiping with BCWipe surgically removes unwanted files while still preserving your operating system and other data you want to keep. Residual data, known as Data Remanence, continues to exist after common activities, such as ‘delete’ a file. Be forensically clean with BCWipe.

Use BCWipe – Enterprise for central management of wiping. The remote data wipe feature allows admins to run wiping tasks using a simple web browser - all without end-user intervention.  

Use BCWipe Total WipeOut to erase entire hard drives before disposal, decommission or repurpose. 

Run from a bootable disk (CD/DVD or USB), BCWipe Total WipeOut completely wipes out all hard drive data – including boot records, filesystem structures, operating system files and service areas like Host Protected Area (HPA) and Device Configuration Overlay (DCO).

BCWipe Total WipeOut – Enterprise includes remote wiping and ability to wipe unlimited hard drives. Jetico's solution can generate tamper-proof Certificates of Erasure (CoE) for compliance and auditing purposes.
