At your location. Because sometimes, sensitive data simply cannot leave your business.
Lockable Storage Bins
SLS offers lockable storage bins to secure accumulated hard drives until destruction services are provided. These tamper-proof bins hold hard drives, CDs, DVDs, thumb drives, mobile phones & other data bearing storage devices until collections are sufficient to warrant a SLS technician coming on-site. These secure bins can also be used to transport storage devices to a SLS facility for final processing.
Drive erasure can also reduce risks and costs associated with returning leased equipment.
Erasing instead of destroying the hard drive enables clients to redeploy hard drives internally or resell erased hard drives. A great solution for destroying data and ensuring value recovery.
Leased Equipment – No Surprise Lease Returns
Returning leased equipment with live data presents security risks during transport. Eliminate these risks and avoid charge backs from leasing companies for hard drive erasure on returned leased equipment.
SLS offers several solutions for erasing data from drives still in laptops, servers, storage area networks (SANs) and network attached storage (NAS). We work with our clients to simplify the return of leased equipment and prevent unnecessary charge backs. Our services include repair, cosmetic refurbishment, removal of company applied asset tags, data erasure and packing and shipping the leased equipment back to the leasing company.
FOR: Loose magnetic hard drives, backup tapes
Data is destroyed through the use of powerful electromagnetic fields. The magnetic charge renders data unrecoverable. Degaussing is quick and easy.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Effective only for magnetic drives and tapes. Degaussing does not destroy data on solid state hard drives.
Hard Drive Crushing
FOR: Magnetic hard drives, solid state drives
For small projects (less than 500 drives)
Our hard drive crushers provides a quick and convenient way to destroy small volumes of hard drives.
Hard Drive Shredding Service
Any data-bearing media that our clients do not want to reuse or resell is physically destroyed. SLS uses high-capacity shredders to destroy all data-bearing media. Our on-site hard drive shredders destroy the entire hard drive, including platters is shredded into small pieces making it impossible to reconstruct the media or data. Our shred trucks are equipped with shredders to accommodate compliant destruction of backup tapes, magnetic hard drives and solid state hard drives.
Certificates of Data Destruction
Certificates of Data Destruction can be provided, regardless of the service provided – data erasure, degaussing, hard drive shredding and crushing.
