Formatting SSD/HDD within a business.

Hi all,


I need some help with methods of fully wiping SSD and HDD on machines.


The business I currently work for has a contract with an external company so when our devices are refreshed they buy them off us but before hand we remove all HDD/SSD from the machine and destroy them securely.

Will our current batch being recycled we can not remove the drives as they are soldered on and due the the contract in place we have to sell these devices to the external company. Due to the drives being soldered in place we are reluctant to sell them on before we know all data is fully wiped.


Does anyone know of any software we could use to wipe the drives without the need to remove the drive that would completely wipe the drive and also be acceptable in security audits.


We have both Macs and Windows machines only.


Thanks for you time.
