Data Destruction

Your data security should be a top priority and here at Excess IT Solutions we have methods to make sure your data is destroyed permanently.

We offer a data destruction service, assuring that all data is completely destroyed on all hard drives according to the following procedure(s):

  • Crush: (Our standard practice for destroying data unless stated) Hard drives will be placed inside a specialised machine and a conical punch inside the unit will deliver 12,000 pounds of hydraulic force to the drive, causing catastrophic trauma to the hard drive’s chassis, destroying its internal platter.
  • 3-Pass Wipe: In some circumstances software can be used on hard drives to overwrite all addressable storage and indexing locations on the drive three times with zeros (0x00), complement (0xFF) and random characters and then verified.

Let’s keep it simple and work together to find a better way.
