Plant Based Hard Drive Shredding in DC

Plant Based Hard Drive Shredding in DC

Recently, Data Killers completed an extensive plant based hard drive shredding in DC for a major defense contractor.  The project also involved the degaussing the hard drives before they were shredded.  The one day project consisted of degaussing (in an NSA approved degausser) then shredding over 3,000 hard drives.  This plant based degaussing and shredding of their hard drives meant that their media was fully destroyed per NSA specifications before leaving our facility.  During the destruction process, our DC plant was totally locked down and secure in order to meet our client’s rigid requirements and standards.  As a certified data destruction company, Data Killers assured compliance guarantees that we comply with all customer regulations for shredding and degaussing their hard drives.

Data Killers provides the premier and renowned service for hard drive degaussing both on-site and off-site in our secure facilities.   Due to our headquarters proximity to Washington DC and the NSA headquarters, we have deep experience in hard drive degaussing and a strong familiarity with all regulations, processes and approvals needed for hard drive degaussing.
