Depending on your location, we offer two convenient degaussing and destruction service options to help you meet government, industry, and corporate data-security standards (listed below):

  • On-Site Data-Elimination Service Our mobile data destruction team or an authorized local partner brings degaussing and destruction to you. The team can degauss (magnetically erase) all hard drives and tape media. They can also physically destroy hard drives and solid-state media, including flash, compact flash, and USB thumb drives, as well as the controller boards of hybrid-drive systems.  As they process each piece of media, our service technicians use our SCAN-1 scanner and software package to create an audit-worthy Media Destruction Report for your records.
  • Shipment-Based Services – If you’re located outside our mobile service region, you can take advantage of our shipping program to send in tapes, hard drives, and solid-state memory devices destined for disposal. We’ll provide full data erasure and media destruction, along with an audit-worthy Media Destruction Report for your records. Once processing is complete, we can dispose of the destroyed media or return it to you for proof of destruction.
