Secure Data Destruction
Secure your data with the right destruction program
CEAR’s data destruction services are customized to the unique needs of each organization. Our comprehensive service is a one-stop IT assed disposition solution. Read about some of our main services below.
Shredding is the most suitable data destruction method when devices cannot be reused. It can also be fast, inexpensive, and effective for a wide range of storage devices including hard disk and solid state drives, data tapes, optical drives, and electronics.
Often called erasure or wiping, this is the process of using specialized software to write meaningless data onto drives or devices. This is usually done in large batches where many drives are simultaneously wiped. Overwriting is best for devices that can be reused, and damaged drives cannot be cleared this way since the process depends on the hardware. Wiping can be time consuming for larger hard disk storage capacities and requires a quality control check, but it allows for certificates of destruction to automatically account for each individual storage device and they can be reused or resold to recover value.
Our onsite service can include shredding or overwriting depending on the equipment and the customer’s needs. Serial number recording is an option for each drive to allow for precise auditing and a certificate of destruction is provided for all work.
At the CEAR facility we can provide all of our certified data destruction services and both witnessed or video recorded destruction is available. Our GPS tracked trucks securely transport devices to our one-stop facility where we have full CCTV coverage and comprehensive access controls.
