Witnessed Destruction

Some situations require that clients physically witness the destruction of the electronic media. ECycling can accommodate this witnessed destruction by hosting the client at our processing facility. Alternatively, witnessing can be facilitated by providing a webcam link to witness the destruction remotely. We also can provide video recording of client hard drives being destroyed. Our witnessed destruction is useful for our clients to verify their media is destroyed and, in some instances, their hardware is destroyed under our brand protection services.

Methods of Secure Data Erasure/Destruction

Effective Secure Data Destruction should meet or exceed the D.O.D 5220.22-M standards. When Data Destruction Services are performed to these particular sets of standards, companies can be ensured that their information is safely destroyed and that the drives are either rendered unreadable, cleansed (meaning that the drives can be re-used) or physically destroyed. 

E-cycling Secure Data Destruction Methods

Data Erasure Software

Looking for a way to securely erase e-data, but still retain the physical hard drive? Our secure hard drive erasure service is perfect for business’ that have off-lease equipment, or hard drives for reuse, redeployment or high remarking value. This service includes.

  • Hard Drive serial number capturing
  • Our bonded, certified technician powers up each item and performs 1, 3, 5, or 7-pass DOD overwrite (depending on security requirements)
  • A certificate of destruction is provided to confirm data has been removed from hard drives.
  • Up to 400 pieces of equipment can be wiped per day

In House or On-Site HDD's Physical Destruction

Shredding hard drives can also be implemented as part of a larger data destruction strategy. If there is a time-gap between pick-up of the equipment and the actual physical destruction of it, a hard drive crusher can be used on-site as a security tactic to render the drives inoperable in the meantime. This process safeguards the company and adds an extra layer of security and protection. We can perform the service at our facilities as well. 

Hard Drive Degaussing

Hard drive degaussing is the process of rendering a hard drive completely unreadable through the use of powerful electromagnets. Once degaussed, the hard drive is useless and it cannot be sold, re-used or donated. For most companies, hard drive degaussing is part of a comprehensive plan to eliminate recorded data such as patient files, financial information or other sensitive or confidential material. Hard drive degaussing is a cost effective solution to destroy small quantities of hard drives or media tapes.

Small Volume Hard Drive Shredding and Degaussing

Fully trained technicians equipped with portable hard drive destruction equipment are available to provide services at our client's facility or office:

  • Degaussing - Destruction through significant magnetic charges immediately erasing data on the hard drive.
  • Physical Destruction – Shredding hard drives on-site,
