Hard Drive, Tape, and Storage Media Destruction is a Secure, Efficient, and Economical data security process. Electronic Media Destruction services allow you to remain in compliance with National Data Security regulations such as:
THE HEALTH INSURANCE PORTABILITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY ACT (HIPAA)
THE GRAMM-LEACH-BLILEY ACT (GLBA)
THE FAIR AND ACCURATE CREDIT TRANSACTIONS ACT (FACTA).
All hard drives and storage media are physically destroyed. A detailed report is generated for each project that includes asset type, asset serial number, and asset tag (if applicable). Physical destruction is accomplished by crushing or shredding a hard drive. We offer three physical destruction services:
01 / Hard Drive Crushing: Lowest Cost Solution
Step one: Hard Drives are first degaussed (data is permanently erased and forensically unrecoverable. The degausser erases magnetic media (Longitudinal and Perpendicular) including all standard hard drives (laptop, desktop & network) & storage tapes (DLT, LTO, DDS/DAT, etc.). SSD Drives are not degaussed, only destroyed.
Step Two: each hard drive is then crushed/destroyed. Up to 150 Drives Per Hour. SSD Drives are not degaussed, only destroyed.
02 / Standard 20mm – 30 mm Shred
Depending on the size of the project, either a mobile shredder (stand-alone) or a mobile shredder transported by truck will be required. Ideal for large projects over 2,000 drives.
03 / 2mm shred
Requires specialized equipment that shred the storage media into minute particles. Because of the size, this is the slowest process meets US National Security Agency standard for destruction of SSD-based storage media – – requires mobilization of specialized destruction device transported by truck.
