PGP Shredder for Linux servers?

 One of our customers wants us to use PGP Shredder to destroy 
sensitive data of theirs when our support people are finished 
with it.  I looked this up and found that PGP Shredder is 
part of the PGP Desktop product for Windows. PGP Shredder 
overwrites a file with random bits in multiple passes before 
actually deleting the file. 

The customer data is centrally managed from a Linux samba 
server, though, and I need a way to do the same type of 
file destruction on the server. What's the recommended 
equivalent command-line software for securely deleting files 
on Linux?
