Data destruction of private and confidential information is crucial to all organizations. Company policies and governmental regulations require that computer data be handled in a secure manner. From the moment a client’s equipment enters our warehouse, it is digitally photographed, tracked, and monitored by around-the-clock video surveillance. As the equipment is sent across the technician’s bench, asset tags are removed, and all data, programs, and operating systems are destroyed upon equipment start up. If the machine fails to power up, the hard disk is removed and physically destroyed. Globix also wipes data on various media types such as, thumb drives, blackberries, etc. To best meet your data destruction needs, you may select a method ranging from a one pass overwrite, to a DOD that meets specifications set by the U.S Department of Defense:
- STD – Simple one pass overwrite of entire hard drive on good working hard drive. In most scenarios, this method is sufficient for data protection, and leaves the hard drive in working condition for reuse.
- ALT1 – Magnetic Degauss destruction of magnetic domains, heads, and components on Non-working hard drives. This method completely destroys hard drive and depletes all value.
- ALT2 – Physical destruction of hard drive platters and electronics on non-working hard drives. This method completely destroys hard drive and depletes all value.
- DOD – Triple pass U.S. Department of Defense Specification. This method is the most comprehensive of all the methods and leaves the drive in working condition to maximize value.
