You may be tempted to throw away your old hard drives, erase, or stockpile them in storage. But data that you think you have “deleted” from these devices can easily be recovered and stolen if you are not using a secure destruction method, leaving your business at risk.
Shred-it’s state-of-the-art destruction technology prevents even the most sophisticated data recovery attempts, permanently destroying any information that was or is on your hard drives.
Shred-it's destruction machines (hydraulic shearer or crusher) are specifically designed to destroy your hard drives so that data can never be retrieved or reconstructed. Shred-it offers two approaches for permanent hard drive destruction that are tailored to fit your business needs:
Slices your entire hard drive into small pieces with 40,000 lbs. of destructive force. The process destroys the drive platters, mechanisms, and electronic components, rendering the data unrecoverable.
Punches irreparable holes through each hard drive with 7,500 lbs. of force pressure, destroying the drive platters, rippling, and fracturing the magnetic surfaces rendering the drive data unrecoverable.
