Think your private data is safe once it has been erased? Think again.

If a device can hold personal, financial or proprietary data, savvy thieves can access it. Damaging hard drives and wiping old thumb drives is not enough. If those items end up in garbage cans or recycling bins they are fair game for scammers. It is not just modern electronic devices that are at risk. ID cards, fax and copy machines, old floppy disks – any device capable of storing sensitive data must be properly destroyed and certified in order to comply with many state privacy laws.

It is vitally important to remove and properly destroy hard drives and media due to the confidential data that remains, even if the machine or storage device is no longer in use. As an example – one 200 GB hard drive can contain up to 40,000 file boxes of information!

We offer all types of destruction services including hard drives, thumb drives, printers/copiers, fax machines, cell phones, media tapes, CD’s, medical equipment, x-rays, microfilm and more. We will disassemble electronic components, recover and destroy the hard drives, and properly recycle the electronics.

Hard drives are processed in a dedicated shredder, with a capacity to shred up to 1200 hard drives per hour. Upon request, we can provide NAID “AAA” Certificate of Destruction and serial number log on all hard drives for your records.

Total data and product destruction is the only way to keep data-storage devices from falling into the wrong hands. We will disassemble all electronics, remove and destroy the hard drives and recycle the other components, and shred or destroy data-storing devices that do not have removable hard drives. Then provide certificates of destruction for your legal records. 

In many cases we provide this important security step when installing new or upgraded hardware on your network. But even existing systems and storage devices should be evaluated for the security threat the pose.
