In the modern age, most sensitive data your business stores will be stored digitally. From USB drives to computer hard drives, it wouldn’t take much for someone to pull valuable information about you and your clients from discarded digital devices.
Due to increasing demand for the provision of onsite data destruction, in conjunction with new privacy legislation including notifiable data breaches and GDPR, Shred-X partnered with a global-leading vehicle manufacturer to design & build Shred-X onsite data destruction vehicles.
To avoid the risk, we’ll bring a complete hard drive and media destruction service straight to your location. In nearly the blink of an eye, we can destroy hard drives, solid state drives, portable media devices and e-waste containing data, ensuring your information is completely unusable, and unrecoverable. Shred-X provide a complete onsite destruction solution including serial number capture of each individual asset which is provided on Certificates of Destruction.
For any e-waste including hard drives, solid state drives and devices past its useful life, simply erasing data before disposal won’t ensure the security of your information.
In fact, it was MIT who proved that point in their study on data security. Their aim was to prove that data isn’t securely deleted just by ‘deleting’ it on the computer. They purchased 158 hard drives from eBay and second-hand merchants, many of which were owned and used by legal firms and banks. The MIT team were able to recover thousands of credit card numbers, personal details of clients, their contact information, and plenty more incredibly sensitive information.
To avoid confidential information falling into the wrong hands, trust in Shred-X’s onsite e-waste and hard drive destruction services.
