Secure IT Destruction For Your Business

When you are in business, you will need to keep your confidential data safe and secure for the duration of it's useful life. However, the time will come when you will need to safely dispose of your old data records.

Our team of professional IT destruction experts at Restore are here to help you to safely manage and dispose of your redundant and obsolete IT assets. We specialise in identifying and collecting your end-of-life IT assets so that we can conduct a complete removal of your sensitive data from your electronic storage disks. We can then take apart your assets to re-use any usable parts or components, and recycle any leftover materials for future use. We can also securely shred hard drives and data storage devices that cannot be recycled for any reason.

 

On-site or off-site IT destruction

For your convenience, Restore can offer you a choice of either secure on-site or secure off-site IT destruction. We have the technology and the specialist equipment to be able to do both, so if you would prefer us to conduct your IT destruction on-site where you can witness the process, then we can do this for you.

Should you not have the room to accommodate our on-site IT destruction, then you can choose to use our off-site services where your IT assets will be collected from your premises and transported via our fully tracked security vehicles to our secure destruction facility. Physical destruction of your IT assets includes punching, degaussing or shredding. Our destruction processes are certified to the following standards, ADISA (Distinction with Honours), ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 27001 and e-stewards.

Shredding your expired confidential data on a regular basis is a routine to be encouraged, especially if you want to stay on top of your data protection requirements and reduce the risk of data breaches. However, unless you are a very large company, you may not require hard drive destruction services on a regular basis. But it is wise to have a regular audit of your IT assets and obsolete hardware to see if you can reduce the build-up of old and unusable IT assets around the office. Not only does old equipment clutter up valuable office space, the data stored on these devices can be open to exposure and risk of theft that can cause your company a lot of detrimental harm.

Regular audits of your IT equipment and hard drive destruction is the best way to avoid the risks of identity theft and data breaches.

 

Certificate of Destruction

Restore will safely dispose of your unwanted and redundant IT assets and will issue you with a Certificate of Destruction that proves your hard drive has been destroyed completely. The certificate with contain the details of destruction that you need for your audit trail, so will state what was destroyed, when and how it was destroyed, along with the names of the people involved in the destruction.
