Destroy IT assets on-site and to the highest, military-grade standard

The US Government trusts Wisetek to destroy data gathered on their IT assets in their highly-classified nuclear power research facilities. The US Government has a number of nuclear research facilities throughout the United States which have large numbers of IT assets and ‘super’ computers. On a regular basis, they needed a company to come on-site in order to destroy IT assets and to ensure full data destruction.

How Data Destruction Benefits You

A Clear Data Destruction Policy Is Key

Large businesses are complex beasts with many moving parts. Without clearly defined strategies and policies, it can be easy for things to slip through the cracks. A simple, transparent, and above all, effective destruction of data policy implemented across your business will significantly reduce the risk of accidental data breaches as a result of improper hard drive disposal.

Understanding the Data Destruction Process

Data, such as that found in data center decommissioning projects, is not as easy to dispose of as you might think. Merely formatting a hard drive is not enough to keep the valuable information it once stored out of nefarious hands. Wisetek provides many services that do, however. Whether the job calls for onsite/offsite hard drive shredding or hard drive degaussing, we have the tools to make your sensitive data destruction a top priority.

Onsite Data Destruction

We understand it is not always practical to transport old IT assets for computer data destruction. With our onsite data destruction services, we will bring the tools to you. If required, the storage media need never leave your sight until the process is complete. Data destruction can also be videotaped if required. For additional security, our mobile data shredding platforms are self-powered and fitted with GPS units. You will never need to worry about your data falling into the wrong hands.

The Importance of Data Destruction

Prevention is Better than Reaction

More of our data is stored remotely than at any point in our history. Confidential records, sensitive personal information—all data that malicious third parties would love to get their hands on. Data breaches are not just costly in the financial sense; they can cause irreparable damage to your reputation and prevent customers from trusting your business. With the secure destruction of data, there is no data to breach!

It's All About the Data

Data is valuable. That is why sites like Google and Facebook can provide their services for “free”. So it should come as no surprise that there are unsavoury parties who would like to get their hands on that data. Meanwhile, redundancy is an unavoidable reality of data center management—information is often duplicated and stored in multiple locations. Doing so provides crucial backup in the event of data loss, but also convenience in allowing faster access from a data center that is geographically closer. While these are important benefits, they present something of a moving target when it comes to ensuring the proper destruction of sensitive data from old IT hardware.

ITAD

Regulatory Compliance is Mandatory

Knowing how to dispose of hard drives is only half of the battle. Many states have their own data disposal regulations (as do several regions outside of the US). It is a legal requirement for a business to meet specific regulatory standards if they want to store particular types of data, such as payment details and medical information. For a typical business, keeping up with the latest relevant certifications can be time-consuming, but rest assured that at Wisetek this is our first priority.
