Secure Destruction and Disposal
of old and outdated IT hardware containing sensitive information
Prior to disposal, re-use or return to vendor, computers, electronic devices and electronic storage media must be securely erased or destroyed to prevent unauthorised access and misuse of the confidential data they may contain.
IT Buddies’ secure data disposal services cover all forms of electronic data storage media, including hard drive, magnetic tape, audio/video tape, optical media, flash media, static storage media, floppy and Zip cartridge.
A Certificate of Destruction can be issued to ensure that you are completely dissolved of any responsibility for the hard drive or other media that has been destroyed, ensuring your full compliance with the Personal Data Protection Act and other relevant laws.
Our Secure Data Disposal Services
The most common techniques include Crushing, Shredding, Disintegrating and Smelting physical items such as:
Computers (including desktops, laptops, servers)
Tablets & Smartphones
Hard Disk Drives & SSD hard drives
Thumb Drives & SD Cards & Flash Drives
CD/DVD/VCD & Tape Media
Digital Data Storage (DDS) & Digital Audio Tape (DAT)
Linear Tape-Open (LTO) & StorageTek Tape 9940/3592
Advanced intelligent Tape (ATI)
Floppy Disk & Magnetic Cards
to ensure complete destruction of these devices and the data they contain, permanently and irretrievably.
Previously stored data in the magnetic media device, such as video, audio, computer tape or hard drives, is rendered unreadeable and unintelligible through the application of a powerful, coercive magnetising force. The degaussing field realigns the particles, resetting the magnetic field of the media to a near-zero state, in effect erasing all of the data previously written to media.
Degaussing a media device before physically destroying it will ensure none of the sensitive data is retrievable from the shreds.
Software-based data destruction is considered Environmentally Friendly, as sanitised Hard Drives and Other Media can be reused.
These software programs, which usually come with a selection of overwriting methods and patterns, overwrite and completely destroy all electronic data residing on a hard disk drive, making data recovery impossible with common software tools. In order to ensure that no trace of the original magnetic pattern remains, the overwriting process is typically done multiple times.
Unlike degaussing or physical destruction, the media is left operable, preserving asset value and the environment. However, as data sectors are overwritten, erasure of large-capacity storage media can be time consuming.
