At Recycling Your IT we guarantee 100% data information security. This is important to help you to:
Our helpful experts can talk you through the best options to meet your requirements. This will include how to choose the method of data destruction, align your internal processes with any audit of outgoing inventory that may be undergone and satisfy compliance
Choosing The Method For Data Destruction
The basic choice comes down to either data wiping or physical destruction. Over the years, we have found these to be the most reliable methods for handling your data as part of a wider process.
This is a process where we eradicate data from storage devices by overwriting the information with pseudo-random information multiple times, thus eliminating any trace of what used to be there.
We use Blancco Drive Eraser software, giving us the ability to erase drives at your premises or on a larger scale at our own facility. The tools we use are approved for this purpose by HM Government’s Communications electronic Security Group (CESG).
IT Asset Disposal
Tonnes of e-waste kept
away from landfill
Please note – we are a corporate IT / WEEE recycling company. Unfortunately, we are unable to collect single items or household electronics.
Secure Off Site Data Destruction
This is the most cost-effective solution, and the quickest way of destroying your data. We take the computing equipment back to our base and choose the best method for destroying the data. Whether that be erasure software or physical destruction is dependent on your requirements.
Secure On Site Data Destruction
For those clients who want the ultimate service in terms of actually seeing their data be destroyed, we have equipment, software and expertise that we can bring to your site. We use a mobile hard drive shredder to destroy drives, this can fit through any doorway or can even be left on one of our vans to ease the disruption to your daily activities.
Hard Drive Physical Destruction
This method is less environmentally friendly than wiping the data, as the drives cannot be reused, however some customers do prefer this method. Normally this involves taking the equipment away from your site, and physically destroying all data bearing equipment at our secure location.
We also have the capability to destroy the drives at your site using portable hydraulic equipment that can be mounted in a vehicle and operated near your premises, say in a car park. This also physically destroys all data bearing equipment.
Processes For Ensuring Audit Of Inventory
You will most likely have a list of your IT assets, all identifiable by unique codes. We can guarantee you the peace of mind that all of your assets are processed by ensuring that our internal processes are aligned with yours before any job is undertaken. This can be easily addressed by our team when you book a collection.
