Professional Data Destruction

Why USE DATA DESTRUCTION?

The reality is, that unless your data is professionally wiped or destroyed, even when you delete something it is usually extremely easy to recover it. Unfortunately, stories of people’s bank accounts, email accounts and other sensitive data, falling into the wrong hands, can sometimes be traced to old hard drives falling into the wrong hands.

Formatting does not delete data – instead it simply removes the file reference table so data appears deleted, it usually still exists on the drive. 

With many different types of storage media on the market, it’s important t use the correct data destruction method for your specific device. 

We use a multiple methods, from degaussing to crushing, and shredding to sanitisation. When it comes to your data – we have you covered.

Physical Destruction – DATA CRUNCHER

The Crunch 250 HDD crusher is a powerful and fast SSD and hard drive destroyer which renders a wide range of storage devices unusable. Simple and safe to operate, destruction of media is guaranteed

Physical destruction renders the drive completely inoperable.  A powerful hydraulic arm snaps the drive platters, read head and controller board. This is also suitable for SSD and NVME drives with the use of a special adapter.  The adapter destroys individual data chips, snapping them into fragments and snapping the PCB in multiple areas.

Our erasure log software records all operating and degaussing information, which can be saved and printed, giving hard copy evidence of complete erasure for reporting and auditing purposes. Media erased is identified with automatically printed self adhesive label with degaussed details, including media serial number..

magnetic destruction – DATAGAUSS

The Datagauss s a state-of-the-art pulse technology degausser, with a unique eraser log software, which provides a reporting tool and a record of media degaussed.

The Datagauss is  powerful, compact, continuous degausser for hard drives and backup tapes. Media that can be securely erased includes both hard drives that use perpendicular and longitudinal recording techniques, including 5000 Oersted’s and all common backup tapes.

Our erasure log software records all operating and degaussing information, which can be saved and printed, giving hard copy evidence of complete erasure for reporting and auditing purposes. Media erased is identified with automatically printed self adhesive label with degaussed details, including media serial number.

 

SECURE ERASURE

For storage that can not be removed, such as phones and tablets, or devices that need to be reused, we offer a secure data erasure option. 

We use a certified product that securely and permanently deletes data stored in laptops, PCs, servers, and storage environments, as well as external media devices (USB sticks and single drives).

Each verified erasure provides a tamper-proof data erasure certificate, showing the following information:

  • Document ID
  • System Hardware
  • Storage Device
  • Erasure Statistics
  • Compliancy
  • S.M.A.R.T parameters

Software is compliant with GDPR and NIST 800-88. It also meets national and global data protection regulations. Using Wiping Software is a way of taking social responsibility, as this secure, cost effective, eco-friendly product makes it possible for IT equipment to safely be reused to help keep the planet green.

Certified Destruction

We also offer certified destruction to all our customers. This is a document, linked to your hard drive, containing detailed information, such as the serial number of your hard drive and the exact type of wipe that was performed on it. It gives you extra assurance that your data is gone. For business donors we offer this completely free of charge – all part of our promise to you – that your data is safe with us.
