Secure data deletion.
Hello, lovely folks.
Recently I’ve started using Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 in my environment and, truth be told, my skills with it leaves much to be desired at the moment. So, I’d be glad if someone can shed a light on the following:
I’m wondering whether this piece of software is capable of secure data deletion. By “secure data deletion” I mean functionality which is responsible for secure destruction of data on an entire hard disk drive, individual partitions, individual files, etc. We all know that via utilizing specialized equipment, it is possible to recover even repeatedly overwritten information. I’m willing to avoid such a situation, especially with confidential data.
So, can anybody clarify these moments for me? Or is there an additional tool provided by Symantec which is likely to meet my expectations?
