IT Supply Solutions handles data destruction in two ways. Both methods follow the highest industry standards. We erase data so computer hard drives can be reused, or we physically destroy components that have reached the end of their usable life.
Every computer hard drive, CPU, motherboard, or graphics card in your company or organization has the possibility of sensitive data stored on it. When you entrust your desktops, laptops, or mobile devices to our team, we follow the industry’s best practices for data destruction. We thoroughly inspect every piece that could have physical memory storage on it. Then our experts decide whether to wipe the memory or destroy the component.
IT Supply Solutions meets or exceeds Department of Defense standards for data destruction. This means we make at least three passes to overwrite data on any hard drives on equipment that isn’t recycled. We carefully audit each piece that undergoes data sanitization by supplying serialized reports of data destruction. We record the serial number of each piece we wipe, the process we use, and stamp the process as complete. ITSS has an errors and omissions insurance policy that covers our work and brings you peace of mind.
IT Supply Solutions may determine that a piece of computer equipment still has some use as a refurbished or renewed product. We wipe the memory clean using industry-leading data erasure software. Wiping the memory keeps the hardware intact so the equipment can still work properly. Not only does the software erase the memory, but it also ensures no one can recover any data even if they’re expert hackers (i.e. cybercriminals) who attempt to use data recovery programs to access sensitive information.
We might determine that some or all of your computer equipment has reached the end of its operable life. If that’s the case, our team physically destroys the hard drives. IT Supply Solutions can shred your hard drives at your facility to ensure your staff oversees every part of the data destruction process to give you peace of mind.
IT Supply Solutions destroys any stored data safely and effectively. Contact our team today for more information on remarketing or recycling used computers and used computer equipment.
