In today’s blog, our experts answer frequently asked questions about mobile and on-site hard drive shredding.
What is mobile or on-site hard drive shredding?
Your computer storage media goes directly from the storage area at your place of business and directly into the mobile hard drive shredder. After the shredding takes place, you can see the results and rest assured that any data was destroyed before your chosen data destruction company leaves your place.
Is mobile or on-site hard drive shredding secure?
Absolutely! ITAD companies use the same hard drive shredding machine to destroy data. Whether they come to your place of business or take it to their facility to complete the hard drive shredding process, it’s secure.
Physically destroying a hard drive is the only sure way to destroy any data on it. It gives your company or organization the security of knowing that no sensitive data found its way into the public through bad destruction practices.
How do you bring a mobile hard drive shredder to my place of business?
We load the machine onto one of our trucks, secure it properly, and then operate it when the truck is at your place of business.
Does my IT manager, CTO, or technology manager oversee mobile hard drive shredding?
Absolutely. In fact, we prefer you do this so you can see that every storage media we put in the shredder comes out completely unusable.
Do I get proof that my storage media was shredded properly?
Not only do you get to oversee the on-site hard drive shredding process, but you also receive a Certificate of Destruction noting the serial numbers of the media we destroyed.
