28 Apr 2012

Jetico’s military-grade wiping technology now built for your Mac

HELSINKI, Finland - March 28, 2012 - Jetico has announced the release of a natively Mac-friendly version of their military-standard data wiping software, BCWipe. Fully integrated for simple use in regular workflow, BCWipe for Mac is a powerful utility to securely erase all traces of any file beyond recovery - including commands to wipe free space and wipe file slack.

For over a decade, Jetico’s BCWipe has been the preferred choice of top defense industry organizations as well as personal users seeking to permanently delete files. For Mac users, the possibility of using BCWipe means they'll now have access to the most powerful and trusted utility to wipe files.

Highlighting the advantages of Jetico's new BCWipe for Mac, CEO Michael Waksman stated that "Despite its industrial strength, BCWipe is still very easy to use. With its native Mac look and feel, BCWipe presents an appealing user-friendly interface that brings military-grade wiping technology right to your fingertips."

Compared Mac’s own ‘Secure Empty Trash’ feature, BCWipe offers the following added benefits:

  • Permanently delete files selectively with military-grade procedures
  • Wipe free space and file slack on your Mac to remove all traces of previously deleted files
  • Wipe a whole drive or partition mounted on your active computer (including external USB flash drives)
  • BCWipe Task Manager to conveniently manage wiping tasks and logging

BCWipe wiping commands can be run from Mac Finder, BCWipe Task Manager or by simply dragging any file onto the BCWipe icon in the task bar.

Mr. Waksman adds, “The Jetico Team is proud to continually expand our ability to serve our customers, from top U.S. defense contractors to small businesses and personal users across the globe. The addition of BCWipe for Mac reflects our drive to deliver innovative, industry-leading products for data protection on a variety of operating systems."

Engineered for a wide range of users, the power of BCWipe offers peace of mind to Information Assurance personnel clearing classified data and basic users at home protecting their privacy. The program comes built with U.S. Department of Defense (DoD 5220.22-M) and U.S. Department of Energy (DoE M 205.1-2) standards, plus a number of other popular wiping standards.
