Erasing or Sanitizing hard drives or magnetic media alone does not guarantee the information is non-retrievable. Only physical destruction along with data wiping can guarantee information is truly destroyed. We don’t just delete or rewrite data, we physically destroy it, eliminating any chance of compromised data.
Records Management Center provides secure data destruction and shredding of Hard Drives, Tapes, Magnetic Media. Our Media destruction services include several layers of data destruction to ensure total, irrevocable obliteration of all information. We combine pulling, scanning, degaussing/eradicating, delamination and physical demolition. Records Management Center also can provide a “Certificate of Tape Destruction” upon request.
Degaussing: erasing data on media without Servo Tracks
Eradicating: erasing data on media with Servo Tracks
Delamination: the process of separating the data-bearing material from the disc, thus destroying the magnetic field
After an erasing process we physically grind the media into small particles.
