Data destruction services and solutions
Whether you prefer to destroy devices yourself or outsource it to a third party, Ontrack has the right solution for you.
We can help you implement an auditable and secure data destruction process within your organisation and verify your existing processes.
All our services include a certificate of destruction and environmentally friendly disposal. We also provide logistical support for picking up large quantities of devices.
Our secure data erasure services
We can help you ensure that sensitive data such as intellectual property, tape, private documents, emails, financial data, health records and other critical information are securely wiped from storage media.
As the worldwide leader in data recovery for over 30 years, Ontrack’s secure data destruction service provides organisations with a fast and certified method to completely remove data from hard disk drives (HDDs), solid state devices (SSDs), and backup tapes. Our media erasure techniques meet or exceed all government and other established global standards for data sanitisation.
Erasure Verification Services
Are your data destruction methods 100% effective? Verifying your erasure process adds protection when repurposing or disposing of end of life hardware.
Our award winning Erasure Verification Service provides individuals, companies, manufacturers, and government agencies a written report detailing the effectiveness of their data sanitisation process.
As Ontrack has years of advanced expertise recovering data from every type of storage device, we go beyond scanning common data storage areas. We thoroughly examine components that commercial software products are unable to access. Once we verify your erasure process, you can repeat it with confidence. If our data recovery experts can’t find your data, then no one else will.
Degaussing magnetic media
Ontrack can provide degaussing services for any magnetic media, using an industrial strength product that meets NIST, HIPAA, ISO, and PCI Standards.
This process removes all magnetically stored user and system data, as well as servo tracks from hard drives, which renders them permanently inoperable.
In addition to providing media degaussing as a service, our Ontrack Eraser Degausser is also available for purchase as a standalone product for sanitising large volumes of damaged or end of life magnetic data storage devices.
Tape Data Destruction
If you have legacy IT assets, such as DLT or LTO tapes, it might be time to consider tape data destruction.
For customers requiring destruction of classified tapes, a degausser can quickly and securely destroy any quantity of tapes. The alignment of the magnetic domain where the data is stored is altered via tape degaussing, permanently and securely erasing the data.
Device shredding services
We also offer shredding services for the safe and effective destruction of HDDs, SSDs, tapes, smartphones, and tablets.
Each shredder breaks down a device into tiny particles, making it completely unusable. All our shredders are certified to the highest security level, providing an efficient way to destroy storage media quickly and reliably.
