Types of Data Destruction and Secure IT Disposal
With regard to physical computer media (such as tape media storage, disk drives, and SSDs), secure IT disposal is a procedure that ensures that data is truly erased or that the media has been destroyed to the point of being unreadable.
Physical Data Destruction
Physical destruction guarantees that your information is irretrievable. We use top of the line shredders to streamline the process as shredding is the most secure and cost-effective way to dispose of all types of storage media. All data destruction is conducted at either our secure location or we can send an on-site shredder. As a result, our clients are insulated from exposure to legal liabilities or loss of corporate assets.Learn More
Magnetic Media Degaussing
Magnetic degaussing, popularly known as bulk erasing, permanently erases all data from magnetic storage media by deleting, formatting and controlling the information on the track. Data tape degaussing exposes equipment to a powerful magnetic field to ensure removal of data from the stored media. This method is perfect for small and medium sized business that are looking for a budget friendly way to destroy retired media tapes.Learn More
