Pittsburgh (PRWEB) April 10, 2014

Cintas Corporation, a leader in secure document management services, today announced the launch of its new hard drive destruction program in the south western Pennsylvania and West Virginia market(s). The new service safely and efficiently destroys computer hard drives, eliminating the risk of a data breach.

“Many discarded hard drives contain information that is confidential and recoverable,” said Tim Stoviak, General Manager, Cintas Document Management, North Versailles, Pa. “Our certified complete destruction solution also offers organizations the assurance that they will remain compliant with data privacy standards.”

Cintas’ exclusive LockDown™ process offers the most secure and efficient solution for permanent hard drive destruction.

  • Two onsite, background-checked employees ensures your hard drives are never out of sight
  • Onsite hand-held scanner records each hard drive’s serial number
  • Onsite onboard computer creates a manifest log of all hard drives recorded
  • Onsite destruction-only process
  • Hard drive platters and casing are physically destroyed to ensure complete data destruction
  • Client can view each destroyed hard drive onsite before it leaves their parking lot
  • Printed and/or emailed manifest log provided for each hard drive successfully destroyed

Typical hard drive destruction methods come with many risks because they are time consuming, prone to human error and, in many cases, not compliant with disposal laws. Additionally, compliance with data confidentiality rules carries risk of serious financial penalties. For example, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) allows fines of up to $1.5 million and 10 years in prison for each violation of patient health information privacy rules.
