General Shredding is proud to announce that it now offers secure, on-site hard drive destruction. Most businesses spend considerable time, money and effort protecting the data on their computers while they use them. However, when it comes to disposal, they carelessly leave data in the trash to be compromised.
A crucial step in the disposal of outdated computer equipment is ensuring all information previously stored is no longer accessible. General Shredding has the ability to wipe the hard drives using proprietary software or physically destroy the hard drives. According to Brendan Fossee, Vice president at General Shredding, “Our society is using less paper each day which means more and more information will be stored digitally. We are very excited to be able to offer our customers an efficient, on-site option to destroy that digital information”
General Shredding can wipe the drives, erasing the information to DOD and NSA standards. Wiping is sometimes chosen over physical destruction because the drives may be reused. General Shredding can perform the wiping process on-site or off-site depending on the customer’s needs and wants. If physical destruction is desired, General Shredding will responsibly recycle the drives following destruction.
