On-site Hard Drive Shredding in Manhattan

The Thanksgiving holiday is quickly approaching, but Data Killers is still busy with nationwide data destruction and hard drive shredding. Our most recent job was on-site hard drive shredding in Manhattan for an international law firm. This one day project consisted of on-site shredding of 500 cartridge style back-up tapes and 330 hard drives. Our customer in Manhattan had stringent guidelines and requirements that Data Killers easily and readily adhered to. We go above and beyond to meet customer expectations, while ensuring accurate and compliant on-site hard drive and tape shredding services.

In a short time, Data Killers’ certified data technicians were able to thoroughly destroy the customer’s sensitive media. The on-site hard drive and tape shredding process not only cuts and shreds the metal but, by forcing it through the cutters and screens, it also compacts the media rendering it completely unrecoverable. Prior to destroying the media, our technician’s scanned and recorded the serial numbers of each piece which assists our customer in keeping accurate documentation for compliance and auditing purposes. The customer had a tight limit as to the amount of media to be destroyed during this destruction run so the accurate count of serial numbers made sure our technicians did not go past that limit.

Data Killers on-site hard drive shredding in Manhattan and nationwide is compliant with all local, state and federal regulations for hard drive destruction. The key component to our nationwide data destruction capabilities is our proprietary trucks, which are fully equipped with top-rated shredders, degaussers, and destruction equipment. Data Killers trucks are partially manufactured by one of the largest energy suppliers to the federal government. Our trucks are self-powered and autonomous with high quality generators, which provide full power to our equipment. Data Killers’ unique process along with highly trained personnel provides the highest level of security for hard drive and tape destruction. The on-site hard drive and tape shredding in Manhattan was done with so much skill and expertise that our customer assured us of their repeat business in upcoming data destruction projects.
