The majority of businesses don’t use a professional service to physically destroy old hard drives, USBs or other hardware that contain confidential information. Physical destruction is a sure way of ensuring that the data on an old hard drive is completely destroyed.
If your hard drive disposal process includes erasing, reformatting, wiping or degaussing old hard drives, you and your customers are still vulnerable. In fact, as long as the drives are physically intact, private information can still be retrieved.
Shred-it applies the same proven, state-of-the-art, chain of custody protocols for hard drive destruction as we do for document destruction, ensuring safe, secure destruction of your media.
Shred-it's destruction machines are specifically designed to destroy your hard drives so that data can never be retrieved or reconstructed. Only complete, physical destruction will ensure that your digital data is permanently destroyed.
Punching an irreparable hole through each hard drive with 3,400 kilos of force pressure. Completely destroying the drive platters, rippling and fracturing the magnetic surfaces and rendering the drive data unrecoverable.
