Ensure data wipe from disks



Is there a way to ensure data wipe from the disks to meet some regulation requirements.

For example after we delete a bin?


When you delete a bin its removed from the index. At some point later, it will get defragmented and overwritten. There is no way to fully “purge” the data off the disk during a deletion operation. Would encryption at REST fit your requirement?


This is what the encryption at rest enterprise feature is for. It satisfies this kind of regulation requirement.


copy cat…


Almost copy cat :slight_smile: … --> EE feature only. CE users can encrypt their data at the client level in the bin on their own, decrypt back on read, store as BLOBs. Achieves similar compliance.
