Shred-it applies the same proven, state-of-the-art, chain of custody protocols for hard drive destruction as we do for document destruction, ensuring safe, secure destruction of your media.
Shred-it's destruction machines (hydraulic shearer or crusher) are specifically designed to destroy your hard drives so that data can never be retrieved or reconstructed. Only complete, physical destruction will ensure that your digital data is permanently destroyed. Shred-it offers two options for permanent hard drive destruction:
Shreds your entire hard drive into small pieces using industrial grade destruction equipment. The hard drive shredding process completely destroys the drive platters, mechanisms, and the electronic components rendering the data unrecoverable.
Punching an irreparable hole through each hard drive with 3,400 kilos of force pressure. Completely destroying the drive platters, rippling and fracturing the magnetic surfaces and rendering the drive data unrecoverable.
