How to use Securaze Work Verifier macOS

Securaze Work Verifier macOS is the newest addition to Securaze array of tools and products carefuly designed to assist you with your data erasure, R2V3 compliance, and asset management.
Here are the steps on how to use it on Mac machines (Intel and Apple Silicon).

 Instructions

  1. To use the Securaze Work Verifier macOS, you will require the bootable drive you created to use Securaze Work for. The steps for creating the bootable drive can be found here.

  2. Plug in the Work macOS bootable drive into a Mac, and boot from it. Once it is up and running, quit the Work application (it starts automatically upon boot on Mac Intel machines), and then open Safari.

  5. In Finder, navigate to Applications, then Utilities folder, and open Terminal.

  6. In Terminal, type in the following commands:

    sudo -s
    enter

    admin
    enter

    cd Downloads/SecurazeWorkV
    tab
    enter

    ./full.sh
    enter

  7. The Work Verifier macOS will now start, and allow you to perform verification of erasure.

It is a requirement that Work Verifier (macOS) is always started via Terminal with full disk access, as described in the steps above. Otherwise, the erasure verification will immediatelly fail with status “ERROR”.
