iShredder Mac overview

iShredder (formerly Data Shredder) allows for secure deletion of data from hard drives and external data storage devices. The software meets and exceeds government, military and industry standards for the permanent erasure of digital information. It erases all existing data up to top-secret security level data and enables users to efficiently delete their data in such a way as to preclude reconstruction, even by government agencies.

  • Certified Deletion Algorithms Depending on the edition, Data Shredder for Mac® comes with secure deletion algorithms such as DoD 5220.22-ME, US Air Force (AFSSI-5020), US Army AR380-19, DoD 5220.22-M ECE, BSI/VS-ITR TL-03423, BSI-2011-VS, CSEC ITSG-06, NATO Standard, Gutmann, HMG InfoSec No.5, DoD 5220.22 SSD and others. Each algorithm has been analyzed by authorities and independent organizations to make sure it really does what it says on the tin - data destruction beyond redemption.
  • Drag and Drop without trace: Data Shredder for Mac offering a high level of user friendliness. With the intuitive drag and drop navigation, users can completely delete data from their hard drives or external data storage devices. Drag and Drop files, folders, hard drives or even external devices to the drag and drop area and securely erase it with just a push of the shred button. Securely wipe the freespace using patented security standards, making it impossible to recover any deleted data.
  • Do you know what is still there in your free space? When you delete a file or a photo the operation system just removes the reference to that data, but doesn’t delete the actual files on your memory. It just simply marked as free so that another file can come and use those blocks. With the freespace erase option in Data Shredder for Mac you can wipe the unused disk space securely so that deleted data cannot be recovered.

I urge MU readers to review the excellent commentary made by "MichaelHaeusler" on 10/3/16 for the similar "ShredIt X" app. Still applicable after more than three years. "Military grade" -- please, give me a break, that means NOTHING. Lock down your drives with FileVault 2 and you'll never need one of the zillion copycat "shredder" programs out there. "Disk Utility" will securely erase a drive if you're getting rid of an unencypted Mac. Shredding Solid State Drives (SSDs), assuming it can even be done, will only shorten their lifespan. And TechTool Pro contains, among many other utilities, a "Wipe File" function, and the twenty bucks you save not buying this will go a long way toward buying TTP. And by the way, and we're seeing this for so many products out there these days, the vendor can't even make up its mind what the name of this product is. The title on MU is "iShredder for Mac" but the body text refers to it as "Data Shredder for Mac." When companies roll out new names for their products, why can't they change the name everywhere? I mean, seriously, if you can't do a "Search and Replace" on your own product literature, are we really supposed to believe that you're technically capable of delivering quality software? -SB
