It’s incredibly common for people to assume that if they erase their hard drive before tossing out IT equipment, all of the data is lost forever. Unfortunately, this is not true, and doing so puts confidential information at risk. All it takes is for a small security breach to expose countless private information. If you want to ensure that your equipment is properly destroyed, e-End offers many certified processes to choose from, including hard drive shredding.
The Importance Of Shredding Hard Drives
Data breaches are all too common, and they can really put businesses and individuals at high-risk. Shredding hard drives is an option that removes this threat, and allows people to trust that their equipment can no longer be an option for a costly data breach.
Why Deleting Files or Reformatting Hard Drives Is Not Enough
Consider the amount of work that you put into protecting data when your equipment is in use. You may install firewalls or other security settings so that your information is secure. However, once you stop using your equipment, you may forget that small pieces of that data remain, even if you erase it. Skilled hackers and identity thieves know the tips and tricks for uncovering valuable information from a deleted system. Don’t leave behind any breadcrumbs for them to use! In addition to hard drive shredding, e-End offers various options for data sanitization.
How We Securely Destroy Data On Your Hard Drives
At e-End, we want our clients to access the data sanitization service, including shredding hard drives that suits their needs. That’s why we offer both onsite degaussing and shredding, as well as offsite shredding and degaussing at our secure facility. We use low speed, high torque hard drive shredders for destroying all media and material that may leave you or your company exposed.
For companies that prefer to have their equipment processed onsite, we offer a mobile service that comes to you. This is most appropriate for facilities that want to see the equipment destroyed and properly recycled. Government agencies or medical facilities that handle a large amount of personal information may be especially interested in onsite services.
We are more than happy to walk you through this process from start to finish to ensure that your equipment is handled with your privacy in mind. We want each client to have a clear understanding of what we are doing so they can see for themselves that the equipment is no longer at risk for data breaches.
Responsible e-Waste Recycling
We also commit to e-waste recycling for any products that we shred or destroy. Doing so protects our environment and ensures that the materials are properly handled from start to finish. We can easily apply this service whether you choose hard drive shredding or another one of our service plans.
