Data Security

Specialists in Secure Data Destruction and Data Security

When disposing of your confidential corporate and customer data, would it not make sense to deal with a company that specialises in secure computer disposals?

We are a specialised IT Asset Disposal company, and customer data security is our number one priority. Your company data and reputation are critical to your business, so don’t take shortcuts when recycling your redundant IT equipment.

We provide full data destruction services tailored to customer requirements to fit your security policies. Whether you require hard disk drives to be destroyed before leaving your site or processed at our premises, we can tailor our services to suit. Either way, the processes and methods used ensure the same high levels of security. We can review your policies and tailor a data destruction solution to meet your needs - simply contact us and see how we can help.

Data Destruction Capabilities

We are pleased to work with Blancco, the industry leading data erasure software, and to meet more stringent customer policies can use their UK Government National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC - formerly CESG) approved software to ensure hard drives are erased and verified. We issue Certificates of Destruction showing the serial numbers of all drives erased and the method of erasure.

Whatever your security policies we can meet them by providing:

  • Onsite Hard Disk Drive Erasure
  • Offsite Hard Disk Drive Erasure
  • UK Government NCSC approved software
  • Erase to HMG IA5 Lower or Higher Level
  • Certificates of Destruction issued

Don’t risk your data and your reputation by giving your old computers to a company that uses erasure software they have downloaded from the internet.

Although we promote the secure erasure of hard drives and the verification and reuse potential this gives, there are times when hard disk drives need to be physically destroyed.

Old hard drives, faulty drives or hard drives that fail erasure need to be physically destroyed to maintain customer data confidentiality. We have a specialised hard drive shredder that can completely shred HDDs to 18mm or even 6mm pieces, effectively turning them in to corn flakes sized pieces. Certificates of Destruction can be issued showing the serial numbers of all hard drives processed.

We can also take our specialised hard drive destruction equipment on to your premises to carry out onsite hard drive destruction, ensuring the drives are destroyed before leaving your site.

Whatever your disposal policies we can help you meet them with:

  • Onsite Physical Hard Drive Destruction
  • Hard Drive Shredding to 18mm or 6mm
  • Certificates of Destruction issued
  • All Shredded Material Recycled

While CDs and DVDs are extremely useful for holding information, this information makes them a liability that needs securely disposed of.

Large numbers of CDs and DVDs can be shredded with our specialised shredder or we can use a specialised US NSA approved commercial CD destroyer to completely remove all data from discs. Like all our services this can be carried out on customer sites and Certificates of Destruction are issued.

Redundant DLT and LTO backup tapes hold all of your company’s sensitive data, and therefore must be disposed of securely.

When the time comes to dispose of them we can help – our specialised shredder is equipped to shred backup tapes to 18mm or even 6mm pieces, effectively turning the tape into confetti, and we can issue a Certificate of Destruction to prove you took the correct measures to meet your Data Protection Act obligations.

We use specialised mobile phone erasure software to completely clear phones of all the data they contain to ensure they can be disposed of safely and securely.

Erasure Certificates are issued showing the serial/IMEI numbers of all mobile phones that are cleared of data so you can prove your data bearing assets have been disposed of securely.

Older mobile phones can be shredded to ensure they are completely destroyed when you dispose of them.

Our specialised shredder can efficiently shred a large number of mobile phones and all the material is then responsibly recycled.

Networking equipment can be sanitised by whatever method is most appropriate:

  • Resetting to factory settings according to manufacturer's guidance
  • Reloading firmware to factory reset
  • Removing and shredding the circuit board
