O&O SafeErase Professional is a reliable solution for secure and permanent deletion of your sensitive files, making them impossible to recover, even by the best file recovery solutions. By using powerful algorithms O&O SafeErase offers you the ultimate protection of your privacy, you can be sure that no data gets into the wrong hands by hackers and data spies.
Your personal photos and confidential documents can easily fall into the wrong hands when you sell, give away or dispose of your old PC or hard drives. Identity theft is now a widespread security threat. This is because clicking on “Delete” does not mean your files are permanently deleted. Even formatting the hard disk is not enough to permanently delete data.
O&O SafeErase allows you to choose from among six different deletion methods. The methods of deletion differ in the number of runs and the type of overwriting process. These methods ensure maximum security, whatever your requirements. In addition to standardized deletion methods of the U. S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) you can also select a complex mathematical method (the Gutmann method), which complies with the highest security levels.
In this scientifically approved method of data deletion, corresponding areas of the hard disk are overwritten 35 times using precisely defined rules along with fixed and random values. In this way, O&O SafeErase exceeds even the requirements of the DoD and the BSI. Quick deletion can also be made by just overwriting data with zeros. O&O SafeErase is just as useful for the home user as it is for a company looking to protect its security by deleting data on its workstations and servers.
