Monodata offers permanent and secure data wiping from all your electrical devices including hard drives (HDDs and SSDs), servers, mobile phones, and USB flash drives.

For this purpose, we use highly certified software developed in the US, used by many US government bodies and international companies.

The primary purpose of our software is to securely overwrite all data to make any type of data recovery impossible and document the process to comply with all applicable corporate and government regulations.

Data wiping is a software-based method of securely overwriting data from any data storage device using zeros and ones onto all sectors of the device.

Secure Erase is a firmware erasure method built into some drives. When available, a command is sent to the firmware of the drive, and the firmware quickly overwrites every sector with a 1 or 0. Since it is an internal process, it is a very quick process.

Our software has the ability to determine if the drive can do Secure Erase, and will attempt to use that command to wipe the drive more efficiently. If a 3 pass pattern is selected, for example, it will attempt to use Secure Erase during one of the passes. The software generates logs indicate whether a Secure Erase pass has been completed. However, if Secure Erase is not supported, our software does the process manually.

Depending on the wipe pattern chosen, the wiping software will overwrite each sector of the drive with the appropriate data.



Many government and industry standards exist for software-based overwriting that removes the data. A key factor in meeting these standards is the number of times the data is overwritten. Additionally, some standards require a method to verify that all the data have been removed from the entire hard drive and to view the overwrite pattern. Complete data erasure accounts for hidden areas, typically DCO, HPA, and remapped sectors.

The two most widely utilized wiping standards in the US are from the US Department of Defense (DoD) and the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST). The software that we use provides over 20 overwrite patterns in compliance with various government agencies satisfying even the DoD 5220.22-M and NIST 800-88 standard. Our wiping procedures consist of at least one overwrite pass followed by verification. Depending on the wiping standards requirement, multiple passes or more complex values may alternatively be used.

By overwriting the data on the storage device, data is permanently destroyed making any type of forensic data recovery impossible.


Multiple drives are wiped simultaneously within a single device to ensure rapid and effective
hard drive erasure.

Thanks to our advanced hardware, we have the capacity to wipe up to 60 devices at the same time and we are able to complete a wiping task faster.
