Mireth Technology released ShredIt X 6, its file shredder and hard drive cleaner software for Mac OS X.
ShredIt X can be used to erase files, folders, disk free space, previously deleted files, hard drives, external drives, network drives and CD-RWs.
It comes with a wide range of features, including built in safety features along with advanced shredding features such as, government standards compliance and a configurable overwrite pattern.
Because throwing data in the computer trash does not remove the file contents from the hard drive, the data can be recovered by someone else. Many users want to erase sensitive data to mitigate the risk of it being recovered.
In addition, users who need to dispose of confidential data on an ongoing basis need a fast way to shred files without having to erase their entire trash can or entire hard drive. Users who want to erase the contents of a hard drive before disposing of a computer need an easy way to erase the drive so that they can do the job successfully.
ShredIt X is available starting at $24.95. Registered users of previous versions of ShredIt X can take advantage of an upgrade discount.
