East-Tec DiskSanitizer for Linux

East-Tec DiskSanitizer for Linux is designed to prevent the recovery of sensitive data that you wish to be deleted from a hard disk. Neither simple file deletion, formatting the disk, nor using fdisk is enough to foil attempts to recover previously recorded data from a hard disk. East-Tec DiskSanitizer overwrites every sector of data on a disk to remove all traces of data. Data is removed according with U.S. Department of Defense standards or custom user security levels. East-Tec DiskSanitizer can be operated from a floppy disk to sanitize any drive from the computer, regardless of the file system or the operating system. It also features verification capabilities and full user control during the sanitizing process.
