Data Destruction

HOW IT WORKS

IS MY DATA SECURE?
OVERVIEW
COMPLIANCE
RECORDKEEPING

Yes. Your data is secure with us.

eAsset Solutions is Certified to the latest standards of R2v3 (Responsible Recycling) and RIOS (Recycling Industry Operating Standard).

These Certifications focus on data security and require rigorous, independent, and annual audits of data destruction methods, quality assurance of verification methods, recordkeeping, and facility security.

Our staff receives your equipment and maintains secure chain-of-custody. At our facility, our technicians ensure all security issues with the equipment are addressed. All asset tags are removed and data-containing media is erased or destroyed. Data destruction is the first part of our normal recycling process, regardless if any extra requested services or fees are paid.

eAsset Solutions operates in a secure facility, with 24-hour video surveillance/alarm, and all employees undergo data security training and background checks.

A Certificate of Recycling and Data Destruction is available upon request.

Serial number and asset inventory services are also available. We scan and record the serial number of all hard drives before destruction. All data destruction processes are also recorded on camera, per our Certification requirements.

Hard Drive Shredding

When you need more than peace of mind.
eAsset Solutions offers physical hard drive shredding at our facility. The shredding process is much the same as a paper shredder, but the machine is more robust and capable of destroying data-storage devices. Digital and magnetic media are shredded into tiny particles, making recovery practically impossible. Shredding also can be used as an added redundancy after data degaussing.

THE HARD DRIVE SHREDDING PROCESS WITH OUR INDUSTRIAL SHREDDER

1. RECORDKEEPING
We scan and record the serial number of each hard drive. All data destruction processes are also recorded on camera, per our Certification requirements.

2. Shredding

Hard drives are safely fed into the hard drive shredder by a technician. Our shredders are also contained in closed units to prevent airborne particulate metals.

Customers are welcome to witness their hard drive shredding. On-site solid state drive (SSD) shredding services are available. Larger drives must be either magnetically degaussed or shredded using our larger shredder at our facility.

3. DOCUMENTation

A Certificate of Recycling and Data Destruction is available upon request. Serial number and asset inventory services are also available. Please request these services from our technician before the data destruction process begins.
4. Recycle
The shredded metals and material are safely sealed and delivered to vetted, certified local recyclers to be made into raw materials.

On-site Degaussing

Witness the data destruction
eAsset Solutions offers on-site Data Degaussing to demagnetize a wide variety of electronic storage media. This allows customers to witness the data destruction prior to the e-Waste leaving their facility.
Key Features
Certified

Listed on the National Security Agency Evaluated Products
List-Degausser (EPL-Degausser), NSA/CSS-EPL-9-12A.

DOD-Compliant

Meets DoD requirements for purging classified information on longitudinal and perpendicular magnetic disk storage devices up to 5000 Oersted and magnetic tape storage devices up to 2800 Oersted.

Fast
Conveyor belt system provides rapid, continuous erasure with a throughput of up to 1,800 tapes or hard disk drives per hour.
Key BENEFITS
Safer
Degaussing destroys the data itself with powerful magnets, not by physically shredding the container. Degaussing also does not result in particulate metals or sharp metal pieces.
Efficient
Degaussing destroys all data on a magnetic level and can process 1,800 hard drives per hour (versus 60 via shredding)
Portable
On-site data destruction for customers to witness before the devices leave the facility.
Cheaper
Less time-consuming for our technicians. Resulting material is easier to recycle.

COMPLIANT DOCUMENTATION OF DESTRUCTION

Certificate of Recycling and Data Destruction
All data erasure and destruction services are backed by a Certificate of Recycling and Data Destruction, providing client liability protection and certification of full data destruction.
