Secure Shredding Services for IT Professionals

As an IT professional, you are often seen as the nerve-center of your organisation. From network architecture and management to application development and deployment, you have the responsibility of keeping intruders out and confidential information in.

While the bulk of your security responsibilities may deal with firewalls and security infrastructure, you have a unique opportunity to further your organisations’ information safety in off-site environments as well.

Take your organisation’s information security to the next level with our hard drive and media destruction services, paper shredding and recycling, and our helpful privacy policies and protocols – all designed to keep your organisation’s confidential information confidential.

With more than 500,000 customers, 19 countries, and 170 locations world-wide, Shred-it is the best-practice in information security and workplace privacy for organisations of any size.

Protecting confidential information is more than passwords.

Introducing the Shred-it Protected Workplace.

Not everything your organisation collects, stores, or handles is digital. When financial forecasts or year-end results are printed, or when reports or agendas are circulated for a meeting, they are at risk of falling into the wrong hands if they are not handled and disposed of properly and securely.

And for that reason alone, every business is at risk of an information breach.

Up to 28% of information breaches are caused by employee error or negligence.2

Complement your current information security practices and create a comprehensive information security programme for your organisation that not only protects confidential information found on networks, hard drives, and other media, but the private information found in paper documents too.

Our products have been designed to protect your confidential information no matter where it exists.

Whether you need to dispose of retired hard drives and USB keys or printed documents and old storage files, our integrated solution is designed to keep private information secure and out of the wrong hands no matter what medium.
