Hard Drive Data Eradication
Used hard drives have little or no value, they take up space, and could prove to be a liability. The most environmentally friendly way to deal with this issue is to eradicate the drive data, but keep the drive intact for continued use. Eradicating the data from a hard drive is a process that does not destroy the media itself, but only the data recorded on it. The advantage of data eradication is that once complete, the drive can be redeployed within your organization potentially saving you considerable money on buying new units.
Every asset received by AES is entered into our database, carefully audited and processed. Audit reports are generated, and Certificates of Data Destruction are issued to guarantee the services rendered.
AES can perform Hard Drive Eradication services both onsite and offsite. We offer many options depending upon your requirements. Our scanning software and knowledge of the data center gives you the satisfaction of knowing that the correct data is being eradicated and an audit trail is provided giving you an accurate account of the work performed. Once the eradication is completed, you have the security of knowing your data is gone.
To provide the most secure off-site eradication service, our trained personnel can pull and inventory all drives ready for eradication at your site. The media is then securely transported to our eradication facility. Upon arrival at our location, an additional audit will be conducted to verify that all the tapes have been accounted for by doing a compare to the inventory conducted at your site.
