Hard Drive Shredding
Here at Techbuyer, your data security is our number one priority. It is also our company mission to ensure that IT equipment is kept in circulation and e-waste minimised. However, we also recognise that there are some circumstances in which you would choose to shred your hard drive, such as Company Policy, Insurance or Legal Requirements, or when a device is nearing end-of-life.
What is Hard Drive Shredding?
When a hard drive is nearing end-of-life a decision needs to be made as to how to dispose of your data. Often this is either by means of sanitisation, shredding or both. It is every organisation’s responsibility to dispose of sensitive information which may be stored on the drives, and destroying the device completely is a secure way of doing so.
The shredder is a heavy-duty piece of machinery that takes the hard drive and cuts it up into tiny pieces. For extra peace of mind, we can also sanitise the hard drives prior to shredding. To find the best solution for your requirements speak to one of our data security specialists.
On-site and Off-site Shredding Available
There are two options when it comes to shredding hard drives. The first option is carrying out the services at our secure engineering facility. Alternatively, we can bring a mobile shredding truck to your premises.
