Data Destruction Services

Never take avoidable risks!

Data destruction is the complete erasure of storage media to ensure that it has no more value or life/useful purposes left.

The importance of timely data destruction is a concern because many computers still use the old HDD instead of SSD’s. Old HDDs have a limited amount of read-and-write cycles which can lead to failure if the drive isn’t regularly formatted.

In addition, anyone with administrative rights to your PC can bypass data encryption and read your files even after they’re deleted from your disk so it’s best to run a secure delete utility before physically disposing of the device.

Since data breaches are quite normal, organizations are trying to proactively handle data both in their current or old systems. Data destruction is happening a lot more nowadays, across large businesses or SMBs. People are realising the importance of deleting sensitive information, like – lists of customers, contracts, job letters, financial data, secret pins, payroll documents and credit card data etc.

Deleting and overwriting files may make the files inaccessible, but it does not affect the data stored on magnetic media. Two methods for complete data destruction are physical destruction or degaussing (erasing magnetic fields).

  • Physical destruction means rendering a hard drive unusable by shredding it or smashing it with a hammer (Sigh!).
  • Degaussing involves magnetic writing new code onto a hard disk that erases all its content – without affecting the hardware’s performance when used properly.
