On-site destruction

With Restore Technology, the security of your data is our primary concern. Whether it be hard drives, flash drives, floppy disks, CDs, DVDs, ram discs or data, CCTV, and videotapes, every single piece of data is destroyed completely and beyond recovery. Our data destruction services are performed to the standards defined by CESG, the cabinet office. Shredding to a size of 2mm is possible. Being ISO 27001 certified every stage of the process is auditable. Full and very detailed audit reports are available free of charge for any equipment processed.

Data destruction

We guarantee that your hard drive data is always destroyed*. We undertake this by using UK MoD and CESG standards equipment and procedures, then shredding if not for reuse or return. HMG IS5 covers both baseline and enhanced overwriting of data. At the baseline level, the software overwrites every sector of the hard disk with one pass of randomly generated data. At the enhanced level every sector is over-written three times: first with a 1, then every sector is over-written again with a 0, and then every sector is over-written a third time with randomly generated 1s and 0s.
