Our secure data erasure services.

Our secure data erasure service ensures that sensitive data such as intellectual property, private documents and email, as well as financial and health records, and other critical information are securely wiped from storage media.

As the worldwide leader in data recovery, for over 35 years, Ontrack’s secure data erasure service provides organizations with a fast and certified method to completely remove data from hard disk drives (HDD), solid-state devices (SSD), and backup tapes. Our media erasure techniques meet or exceed all government, and other established global standards for data sanitization.


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 sanitization process.

Because Ontrack has years of advanced expertise recovering data from every type of storage device, we go beyond scanning common data storage areas—thoroughly examining 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.

degausser for data destruction

Degaussing magnetic media.

Ontrack provides degaussing services of your magnetic media employing industrial-strength degaussers, which meet 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.

Ontrack shredders and degaussers.

Developed as a total data destruction solution, the Ontrack Eraser Degausser is a do-it-yourself hardware solution for large volumes of damaged or end-of-life magnetic media.

Specific Ontrack locations now offer shredders for the safe and effective destruction of HDDs, SSDs, smartphones, and tablets. Each shredder breaks down a device into tiny particles, making it completely unreadable. All our shredders are certified to the highest security level, providing an efficient way to destroy storage media quickly and reliably.
