Ensure data wipe from disks


#1

HI,

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

For example after we delete a bin?


#2

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?


#3

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.
