The Certus Erasure module is a certified product for securely and permanently deleting data stored in laptops, PCs, servers and storage environments, as well as external media devices (USB sticks and single drives).


The Certus Erasure Web Manager provides a centralized admin console to control and manage the entire data erasure process. It is fully compatible with all Certus Erasure products.


The Certus Erasure module securely and permanently deletes data on iOS® and Android® mobile devices. Each verified erasure provides a tamper proof data erasure certificate.


EraseNow.com has been specially created so users can erase data from any device themselves. The final result is that each user is confident the data has been erased permanently and, as evidence, receives a verified tamper-proof data erasure certificate.
