Once we receive  equipment into our facility, our priority is to quickly get rid of client's data by cleaning or destroying the hard drives/SSD and any other equipment that may contain corporate data to maintain confidentiality and to protect the proprietary information of our client.

Our data destruction standards and solutions are approved by National Cyber Security Centre (a part of GCHQ). These standards are used in our wiping software for data sanitisation, requiring a minimum of three overwrite passes to guarantee the elimination of all confidential information. For sensitive data, we may destroy device storage (HDD and SSD) after data erasure is done. This is done by shredding the device storage to 1 - 6 millimetre particles. This is for your complete peace of mind, that your data is completely destroyed.
