Protect Your Business,

    Prevent Costly
    Data Breaches

    The cost of corporate data breaches—be it sensitive proprietary data or customer records—has continued to rise as more of our data is stored remotely. A certified hard drive destruction service eliminates the possibility of such a data breach happening due to decommissioned IT assets, like computers, falling into the wrong hands. Protect your business’s reputation and financial future.

  • hard drive destruction

    The Environment

    Electronic recycling is not just a matter of keeping old computers out of unsightly landfills. IT hardware contains many toxic materials that can leak into the surrounding environment. Substances such as lead, zinc, barium, and much more, are as poisonous to human bodies as they are to the environment. Wisetek can ensure your business does not contribute to this problem.

  • hard drive destruction service

    Add Value
    to Old Hardware

    Not all data is created equally. While some hard drives warrant being completely shredded behind locked doors with in-person witnesses, it is sometimes appropriate to use more cost-effective solutions. In cases where complete hard drive destruction is not necessary, a hard drive degausser can be employed. This process leaves the hard drive physically intact, which has a higher recycling value than a shredded hard drive.

  • hard drive destruction company

    Maintain Your
    Customer's Trust

    Beyond the immediate financial concerns of lost and stolen data, data breaches can cause severe—sometimes irreparable—harm to your customer’s faith in your company. If storing customer data is a vital element of your business, such a lack of trust could be devastating, not to mention legally damaging.

  • hard drive destruction

    Full Assurance with DataDEAD

    Wisetek’s DataDEAD data destruction management system leaves you in no doubt that your data has been properly destroyed. It offers full tracking and reporting, integrated with our systems for up to the minute information. CCTV monitors our trucks for added security, with video files of each destroyed hard drive available through DataDEAD, as well as the full chain of custody.

How to Dispose of Hard Drives

True Data Destruction

It can be tempting to think that running consumer-grade hard drive erasure software will be enough to keep your data secure. Unfortunately, this is not the case as consumer tools cannot guarantee 100% data erasure.

The first step in secure data destruction is establishing the best method for the job. Research has shown that a fifth of global enterprises do not differentiate between regular hard drives and solid-state drives when disposing of them. Understanding which method is appropriate for the task is vital to a secure hard drive disposal strategy.

NSA-Approved Hard Drive Shredding

Hard drive shredding does precisely what it the name suggests. Our NSA-approved hard drive shredders are equipped to shred any material down to 10mm, with 2mm possible on request. Shredding is suitable for most storage mediums, particularly magnetic platter-based hard disks. The resulting debris can then be recycled responsibly, ensuring the dangerous materials used in its construction don’t harm the environment. Shredding is one of the less costly methods of total hard drive destruction.

In some cases, shredding may not be deemed adequate, such as in the case of highly classified data, or with solid-state hard drives. For those occasions, there are more destructive services available, such as hard drive disintegration.

Tailor Our Service to Your Needs

As a general rule, the more complete a destruction service is, the more expensive and dangerous the process of destruction is. For example, hard drive melting involves dipping the component in an acid which is highly corrosive and requires the operators to wear protective gear. At Wisetek, we always aim to find the most cost-effective solution for your business while still meeting your data destruction needs.
