Jetico BCWipe 18.104.22.168 | 5.78 Mb
Use military-grade procedures to surgically remove all traces of any file. BCWipeTM data wiping software enables you to permanently delete selected files so that they can never be recovered or undeleted. BCWipe embeds itself within Windows and can be activated from the Explorer FILE Menu OR from the context (right-click) menu OR from BCWipe Task Manager OR from a command-line prompt.
BCWipe complies with U.S. Department of Defense (DoD 5220.22-M) standard, U.S. Department of Energy (DoE M 205.1-2) standard and a set of other standard wiping schemes. You can also create and use your own customized wiping scheme to wipe sensitive information from storage devices installed on your computer.
New Features in BCWipe 4.0:
Jetico is introducing a higher level of protecting deleted information from unauthorized recovery - BCWipe's Transparent Wiping. After Transparent Wiping is easily activated on your computer, BCWipe will automatically wipe all contents of any file or folder that is deleted. So, you no longer need to worry about securely erasing all traces of every single sensitive file you've been working on - BCWipe's Transparent Wiping will always be there to take care of it!
The primary advantage for users running Transparent Wiping is that it eliminates time-consuming processes to wipe free space, wipe temporary files or wipe old file versions. These tasks are typically necessary because while running an application - such as editing an Office document or browsing the Internet - it creates temporary files, cache objects or other special system files that may contain confidential information.
Transparent Wiping intercepts all ‘delete' commands sent by the user or by the system and securely wipes the data files. And all temporary files created by Windows or by any application will be wiped when they are no longer needed. When a Word document is closed, the temporary copy of the file will immediately be wiped.
