Default Tool like WD zap for sata?

In the days of IDE I used to use the WD utility zap to wipe the boot
block of a previously used disk to ensure a clean install.

Does anyone know of a similar utility that works for sata drives?

Dban would be fine for a full erase but it takes too long for this kind
of job.
