Secure Data Destruction
Securely, timely, and environmentally sensitive disposal of computer equipment is a major challenge for all organizations nowadays. Just as it’s critical to set up and configure an asset for use, it must be recycled appropriately both to eliminate risk and to ensure maximum return on investment
An organization’s data represents its greatest asset. When recycling IT hardware equipment, there is a significant risk that data may fall into the wrong hands. R2v3 Sustainable Electronics, ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 Certification ensure that our process and mission are to dispose of your obsolete IT equipment safely and securely. Our employees are fully trained and go through regular background checks to be sure they can handle security procedures for classified data and information destruction. We are providing both on-site and off-site hard drive shredding services.
Our standardized policies, procedures, and training guarantee destruction exceeding mandatory legal guidelines. Hard drive shredding is performed by trained technicians who have undergone background checks, signed confidentiality agreements, and passed the government check. Our advanced shredder, which is self-contained and self-powered in our warehouse, allows us to shred Hard Drives, SSDs, NVMe, USB, and flash media down quickly and thoroughly.
The process not only shreds the outer metal but, by forcing it through the cutters and screens, it also dismantles the magnetic film, rendering it completely unrecoverable. We ensure your storage media devices are destroyed, and you are always provided with a detailed certificate of destruction.
The destruction of data should be the priority when disposing of or renewing IT assets. Degaussing is also the guaranteed form of data destruction; as such, it serves as an alternative method of data destruction. Our degaussing is the exposure of tapes to alternating magnetic fields that overwrite original information with random empty patterns, destroying all the data.
Our degausser erases data by generating a magnetic field so powerful that it permanently removes the magnetic memory from the iron oxide or chromium dioxide coatings, which completely removes and randomizes the recorded data pattern. We make sure that the degaussed tapes cannot be reused. This is because the degaussing process not only removes all the data and information, but it also removes the start-up files. As such, a degaussed drive or tape will never boot up.
To protect information and personal data, the drives need to be permanently wiped. It is not enough to simply erase the data by using traditional methods like deleting files or old-fashioned formatting. Nowadays, deleted information can be recovered by smart data recovery software.
We are providing comprehensive data wipes as part of our spectrum of electronic waste recycling services. We pledge to protect the data in the afterlife of obsolete IT hardware equipment. Hard drive wiping (NIST 800-88 Sanitization) is the process that permanently deletes all the information and data from the hard disk drive, making it impossible to retrieve.
This goes beyond simple formatting, especially in cases where sensitive data is involved. In this process, the disk is not physically destroyed, making it reusable for refurbishment and resale purposes. Based on the client’s requirements, we also provide degaussing and shredding of hard drives.
