HARD DRIVE DESTRUCTION for Monmouth & Ocean Counties, NJ

 provides the solution to completely destroy your data forever!

The amount of information stored on a hard drive can represent an enormous amount of client, employee, and personal data.  Many identity thieves collect confidential information by mining information from discarded hard drives.  Don’t let your organization’s confidential electronic information fall into the hands of the wrong people. 

 .

Hard drive degaussing and destruction is the most secure way to completely destroy and therefore protect your information.  In fact, it is the only method approved by the National Security Agency (NSA) and Department of Defense (DOD) for the destruction of classified data stored on electronic media.

Our 3-Step Process

  1. Degauss the Hard Drive:  our Degausser applies an intense and fluctuating magnetic field to the hard drive realigning the particles and resetting the drive to a near zero state.  All data previously written to the drive is completely erased and irretrievable.
  2. Physically Destroy the Hard Drive:  our Destroyer bends and breaks the hard drive including the data platters where the data is stored, rendering the hard drive inoperable.
  3. Recycle the Destroyed Material:  we securely transport the destroyed hard drive (s) to a NJ DEP approved recycling facility.

Planet Shred is an approved Small Quantity Handler (SQH) of Consumer Electronics by the NJ DEP.  None of the major document destruction firms are authorized to perform all these functions in NJ.  There are very specific regulations on this matter.  And as to IT Firms that use "overwrite" software to remove information from Hard Drives, there are many studies that question whether this process does in fact remove all data, so why run that risk?  Additionally, if the IT firm has not been designated a SQH of Consumer Electronics by the NJ DEP, they (you?) may be in violation of the law!

 

Services can be performed at your facility or ours!  Contact Us to further discuss details of the destruction process and for pricing information... 732.722.7777.  NOTE: We also handle back-up tapes, CDs/DVDs, Floppy Disks, VHS tapes, and computer accessories (monitors, keyboards, etc).
