On-Site Hard Drive Destruction Service

E-Waste Security’s hard drive destruction service is the most secure and compliant in the industry.

To begin with, we physically destroy hard drives.  As a result, your hard drives can no longer be used nor can data ever be recovered.  The threat of information exposure and data breach is effectively controlled.

Secondly, we destroy the hard drive on-site so you can witness and verify that data has been destroyed. This witnessed process ensures an unbroken chain-of-custody that will satisfy your CISO and SOC auditor.

Lastly, our Certificates of Destruction go beyond auditors’ requirements and expectations.  We offer full NIST 800-88 reporting which includes the drives make, model, type, serial number and the parent machine.

Data Destruction Process

E-Waste Security is a NAID Certified data destruction company.  Accordingly, our hard drive destruction process must follow stringent policies and procedures to mitigate all threats to information security.

The first step in the process is to gather the drives in a secure location.  This could be inside your offices, data center or our mobile destruction unit.  At this point we scan and record the serial number of each hard drive.  This information is recorded to create a detailed Certificate of Destruction for your CISO or auditor.  Our step-by-step process for secure data destruction.

The next step is the process of destroying the hard drives and other digital media.  We have machines listed on the National Security Agency’s Evaluated Products List.  These machines have the capability to destroy over 1,300 hard drives per hour.  Once destroyed, the drives will be melted down to recycle the various metals.  Finally, we complete the paperwork acknowledging that drives were destroyed in the presence of an representitive of your organization.

Benefits of our Data Destruction Service

Our destruction procedures, certifications and equipment permanently destroy the hard drive and any information that was ever on it.  Even the most sophisted attempts to recover information will be unsuccessful.

In contrast, some organizations decide to erase and resell their used hard drives.  This process leaves the organization vulnerable to data recovery attempts and critical consequences.
