Data Destruction

Your data is a highly valuable and dangerous commodity in the wrong hands. Even your non-functioning Hard Drives have recoverable data which in the wrong hands could severely damage your organisation. Data theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in New Zealand.

Our services will ensure that none of your data will ever fall into the wrong hands.

How We Destroy Data

Simply Reformatting or Damaging a Hard Drive is not enough to remove your data permanently from the drive as the data can still be recovered from the magnetic platters.

IT Recycla offers the following techniques to securely destroy sensitive data:

1. Disk Degaussing

A simple method for securely destroying all data from your Hard Drive or Tape is degaussing. Our Degausser releases a large pulse over your Hard Drive or Data Tape Destroying and Sanitizing ALL data. Our degausser has been independently tested and certified to meet the most stringent security standards including ANSI, CE, PCI-DSS, NIST, HIPPA and many others.

2. Drive Shredding

ITRECYCLA can also shred your drives (or devices) turning them into small metal/plastic fragments thus eliminating any likelihood of any important data being recovered from them.

Shredding & degaussing is the only bullet proof “belts and braces” approach to secure data destruction.

3. Data Erasure

ITRECYCLA utilizes both hardware and software as appropriate to efficiently and securely erase data from wide range of technologies and devices including:

  • Hard disk drives (IDE, SCSI, SATA, SAS, Fibre Channel)
  • Drive arrays and towers
  • Solid State Drives
  • Mobile devices (iPhone, Android, Blackberry)
  • Drive arrays and towers
  • Data CDs/DVDs

Our solutions comply with all major security standards including: US Department of Defence 5220.22M (3-pass), US Department of Defence 5220.22M (7-pass), US NIST 800-88, United Kingdom CESG “Certified” erasing standards Baseline and Enhanced

Data Destruction On-Site

Some customers want absolute assurance and validation that any data residing on their end-of-life hardware is completely erased prior to leaving their facilities. In these cases, a fully trained ITRECYCLA Data Destruction Technician can be sent on-site to provide data destruction services at your office or facility.

This service has proven popular with government departments and organizations whose data must remain private and secure and is subject to regulatory compliance.

Our Technician will travel to your facility and, while in your presence, remove the Hard Drives, Degauss them and pack them for transport to our facility for recycling.

Our portable degaussing equipment has built in safeguards that measure the strength of the magnetic field before each erasure cycle ensuring that it is strong enough to remove ALL magnetic patterns from the media. This is measured on an independant circuit.
