Protect your privacy with secure background wiping of sensitive files.

With the wide use of encryption systems, an attacker wishing to gain access to sensitive data is forced to look elsewhere. One way to attack is to try to recover supposedly erased data from a hard disk or random-access memory. Shred Agent is designed to protect your privacy. When you delete files in Windows it is possible to un-delete or recover them using various file recovery utilities. If you want to make sure that the file you delete cannot be restored by any means, Shred Agent is the right tool for you. To make sure nobody else has access to your private files, you might use some encryption software. But encryption is useless if the original plain text can be recovered. Wiping is the process of writing some information directly onto the space where the old file was located. Shred Agent works on the hardware level, wiping the files completely, and eliminating any possibility of ever recovering them. What makes this different from other file wiping utilities is the capability to control the wiping of files in the background. For example, you can configure the filters to wipe temporary file created by office programs. If Shred Agent is installed on a server and a remote user is trying to delete a file from the "Include" list, Shred Agent will wipe the file via network. Shred Agent can be customized to suit your needs. Configure filters to wipe only files with certain extensions or belonging to a specific directory. Make sure Shred Agent is launched every time you switch on your computer. Record all the information about the files being wiped to a log file.
