The most secure way to destroy hard drives is to shred them before they even leave your location.
Under many state data privacy regulations, the loss of an unencrypted device would trigger a regulatory mandated “Data Breach Notification”. Data Breach notifications are expensive but the resulting bad publicity can be many times more harmful to an organization. Onsite hard drive destruction completely eliminates this business risk during the disposal process because no data will leave your location intact.
Having IoMT Solutions provide onsite hard drive destruction is simple. This is our onsite secure disposal process:
While onsite we can also provide:
- Tape shredding
- IT inventory validation
- Degaussing of hard drives and tape drives
- Deinstallation and relocation of hard drives and devices
Additionally, we can also take your medical devices, IT equipment, and peripherals back to our secure warehouse for recycling. Our technicians will advise your team on how to best prepare your assets for destruction and recycling to ensure a fast and seamless experience at our next visit. If needed, we can also leave a container at your location to store your e-waste.
Solid State Drives
Solid state storage devices present a security challenge. Shredding is the most effective method for sanitizing SSD and solid state cards. Degaussing does not work on SSDs and overwriting is prone to error.
Because of the very small size of solid state circuitry, NIST destruction guidelines require a maximum shred size of 1/2 inches. IoMT Solutions is one of only a very limited number of onsite SSD shredding services that can meet this shred size standard. Adopting onsite SSD shredding as your universal data destruction process eliminates the technical challenges of sanitizing solid state media. It provides a one-stop solution to all of your data destruction needs.
