Let Us Help

Stay Compliant

We provide years of experience in Secure Data Eradication: Your compliance issues are met by our Media Buy Back and Data Eradication processes: Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Electronic Communications Privacy Act, Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act, Computer Security Act, and Sarbanes Oxley regulations as well as D.O.D. (Department of Defense) standards for data destruction.

Ensure Data Security

We Buy Used Tape offers many layers of data security. From pick up to certification your data is protected throughout the process. We utilize scan in and scan out methods when the tape reaches our secure facility, inventorying and tracking each and every tape. The tapes are then transferred to our secure on-site labs where they undergo data eradication procedures specific to each tape format which ensure the eradication of your data.

We do not outsource our data destruction. The tapes are handled in our secure facility during the entire data eradication process. Certified tapes have been independently tested against new tapes and have been found to share the same industry standards as new tape. You will also be provided with a certificate of data destruction which provides you in writing with a detailed inventory of the tapes we received and our written guarantee that your data has been completely eradicated and is unrecoverable.
