Onsite data destruction to give you the ultimate peace of mind
Onsite data destruction services from Azizu
The process starts with an engineer delivering degaussing equipment to your site. Azizu’s onsite degaussing service applies an electromagnetic pulse of 9000 Oersteds, almost twice the level of the coercivity of today’s disk drives, to erase all information on a data storage device. The hard drive is rendered inoperable during this process and cannot be reused.
Onsite hard drive shredding
At your location, memory storage devices can be shredded in line with your security policies (or we can advise on this too), before being cataloged and certified as destroyed. This can include all kinds of storage devices like spindle drives, SSD drives, USB drives, SIM card, SD and MicroSD cards. Waste is then removed and goes into recycling.
The process of puncturing SSDs is slightly different from shredding. At your location, we place drives into machinery containing a press that punctures multiple pins into the hard drive and the chips contained within them which completely annihilates the data contained. Once the memory chips are destroyed following the puncturing process, the drive is littered with holes.
Onsite data erasure that’s above and beyond
Expert technicians arrive onsite and go through our regimented operating procedures for data erasure. This process achieves a data overwrite which exceeds the NIST 800-88 standard and ensures 100% of sectors are overwritten. Drives with damaged sectors that cannot be overwritten are removed and shredded.
