Data deletion certificate (delete log output)
When you delete data from hard disk, SDD, etc., it is critical to ensure the deletion is complete so that no data will leak from those drives.
Corporate management will require a proof of data deletion, and so do auditors to ensure compliance. Contractors who provide deletion services certainly need evidence to prove their deletion services.
DiskDeleter automatically generates detailed deletion log for each operation and issues a tamper proof deletion certificate.
DiskDeleter log includes date & time, PC identity, software used for deletion, deletion method, etc., and “bad sector report” and #SMART report” function, as shown in detail below.
DiskDeleter Tamper Proof Certificate has been accepted as a proof of deletion in the industry, by auditors and corporate management for many years.
