After going through a strict security audit, Harvard University chose DataShredder to shred their hard drives and media with the utmost security and confidentiality – shouldn’t you? Whether you generate a few drives a year or have a large quantity each month, we ensure swift processing and secure destruction of your hard drives and media
Hard Drive Shredding – How It Works
We can shred your drives right at your facility or take them back to ours – it’s totally up to you. No matter where you want them shredded, we shred every hard drive into small fragments eliminating the possibility of any data retrieval. Erasing your hard drives does not guarantee that the information has been erased and the only way to make sure your data is gone is to physically shred the drive.
It is now recognized by most IT professionals that degaussing or wiping hard drives is no longer an acceptable method for complete, secure destruction of stored data. DataShredder has specialized machines that shred high volumes of data storage devices, including hard drives, while fully complying with the coveted AAA certification standards of the National Association of Information Destruction.
