ATP SECURE ERASE
ATP Secure Erase initiates a block-by-block, data pattern write operation to systematically erase any trace of the original data on SSD’s or flash based storage devices. Secure erase is essentially a series of data deletion commands that provide “electronic data shredding” capability for flash products. There is no need to access the physical drive or to run complicated command procedures found in degaussing, or in the destruction of hard disk drives. The ATP software application ensures that the declassification becomes quicker, easier and more cost effective. Secure Erase is ideal for critical government and military applications with heightened security requirements.
ATP Secure Erase can also recover the file system architecture, such as FAT32, or NTFS. After the secure erase operation has been completed, ATP Secure Erase will automatically re-format the storage device into its original file system, either FAT32, or NTFS. If the storage device has no file system, ATP Secure Erase can create a NTFS system for the device. Ultimately, the storage device can be configured back to its original, ready-to-use format.
Moreover, ATP Secure Erase offers a diverse variety of secure erase protocols, as following:
The variety of secure erase protocols offer different security levels with different process time. The following chart shows the time difference of different security protocols in a 2GB storage device:
