San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 9, 2009
The Guardian Hard drive destroyer now available from http://www.hddmachine.com is helping companies large and small around the world to safely get rid of old hard drives by punching a hole through the chassis. It's compact size and versatility is making it the choice of clients ranging from IT service providers, to government agencies, financial institutions and computer recycling centers.
"This machine is something that many companies need but are not using," says Glen Johnson, publicist for the website. "So many old hard drives are sitting around in IT departments, or in store rooms, taking up space. Not to mention the security risk posed by having old hard drives sitting around."
Information security is an important part of any business that uses computers, and Johnson feels that this hard drive destroyer is a good investment.
"Whether companies want to purchase one of these machines for themselves, or hire someone to bring this machine on site and destroy hard drives first hand, we think it is something that is growing increasingly important. Even individual computer users who are disposing of old computers from their home office should be demanding that there is a machine like this at their computer recycling center. To just throw away an old hard drive is pretty absurd considering the amount of private data that accumulates on it in just months of use."
What makes this machine different says Johnson, is the fact that it is small and highly portable. Many companies ship off their hard drives to facilities that have large machines which grind the hard drives to pieces. While hard drive grinders are physically a very effective way of killing a hard drive, it is not very safe considering that the intact hard drives often have to travel 100's or even thousands of miles to the destruction facility.
"Our machine makes the whole process sensible. If you pull a hard drive out of an old computer, you should be able to see it destroyed on the spot the next minute. There's no reason not to get visual verification that the data on your old hard drive has been rendered unusable by modern technology. We think lots of small companies that offer all types of computer services should be offering 'on the spot' hard drive destruction as a value added service to increase revenues and their volume of clients."
