Data destruction is an important security measure aimed at protecting your company’s interests and your customers’ sensitive information. The information that is stored on your devices is a critical aspect of the day-to-day running of the modern day business thus should be securely destroyed before decommissioning of I. T. equipment. Failure to properly destroy such proprietary information could have an adverse impact on a business, organization or public body leading to more severe problems like loss of revenue and other unforeseen risks.

Why Should you Consider a Physical Data Destruction Service
Physical hard drive destruction is one of the safest and most secure methods of permanently destroying data that offers an extra level of assurance to ensure sensitive information doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. With our physical data destruction services, significant amounts of media can be destroyed simultaneously into tiny pieces through the use of our large mechanical shredders.


There are other methods that can be used to destroy data including erasure and degaussing. Hard drive erasure involves the removal of e-data while retaining the physical hard disk for re-use, redeployment or high remarking value. Data degaussing, on the other hand, exposes powerful magnetic fields to hard drives, disks and media tapes to remove data. Though cost-effective, both methods do not guarantee that the information is 100% non-recoverable. When a drive is erased or degaussed, files and directories are deleted but actual data can be retrieved using some readily available software on the market. The only solution to permanently destroy electronic data and ensure no trace of personal data can be salvaged from the drive is to crush or shred the hard drives. Make sure to entrust the service of a professional as the method can only be effective if done properly.
