An immeasurable amount of data is kept on magnetic media storage devices. The days of rummaging through stacks of paper are over; hard drives, tapes, and even film have revolutionized the way we work and store data. They save space, are easy to navigate, and are always readily accessible. Yet, they often need to be replaced, and it’s not always so easy to wipe sensitive information from them. Clicking ‘delete’ and emptying the recycling bin from your desktop won’t do the trick.
Rapid technological advances will cause new hardware to turn obsolete more quickly. Upgrading to a new system, deleting information in compliance with federal privacy laws, or clearing out some space are all reasons to take precautions. Even your personal computer’s hard drive can contain credit card numbers, banking information, social security numbers, and website login information. Whatever the reason, you need to transfer, wipe and destroy the data from the old system.
Highly impressive feats of data recovery are not unheard of -- it’s a big market, actually. Recovery services can extract data from physically damaged hard drives, drives that experience software or hardware issues. What you may think is a defunct piece of hardware could be someone else’s key to your privacy. Properly disposing of these things can take a lot of time and effort, especially for companies that store a lot of data. Overwriting, degaussing or even shredding the equipment takes professional help. That’s where we come in.
We are data experts in every sense of the word. Equipped to deal with any type of media, be it hard drives, film, disks, even x-rays, we guarantee your sensitive materials are protected and secure from pickup to destruction. We’ll work with you to prepare a customized destruction schedule that’s right for you.
