Hard Drive Destruction Prevents Theft of Private Data

Computers and laptops wear out or become obsolete so at some point every business installs new equipment and sends off their hard drives and other parts for recycling.  Although there are many file deletion software programs available, it’s best to use a service like Data Killers that specializes in degaussing and shredding hard drives.  Our process of NSA approved degaussing and physical hard drive destruction prevents theft of private data and is the most reliable method of securely removing data.

Data Killers’ two-step process of hard drive degaussing then shredding satisfies all DoD regulations and guidelines and is the only NSA approved process to destroy hard drives.  Degaussing hard drives puts data in a random pattern without alignment, making the files unrecoverable.  Our NSA degaussers make the hard drive inoperable by wiping out the factory formatting, but Data Killers doesn’t stop there.  As an added option to completely destroy hard drives, we offer hard drive shredding.  We can shred any type and size of hard drives into tiny particles.  We offer a variety of shred sizes down to 10mm to comply with any data destruction regulation or mandate.  Data Killers’ shred size is the smallest in the industry.
