Secure Data Deletion
Over the last 10 years at SCRD our data wiping facility has grown to one of the largest in Australia. We are continually upgrading and expanding to keep up with the constant changes in technology and hardware, thereby ensuring that we are able to deliver secure data deletion services to the WA market.
Our Blancco software suit enables us to securely wipe all device types;
- Hard Disk Drive (HDD)
- Solid State Drives (SSD)
- Smart Phones
- Storage Area Networks / Network Attached Storage
- USB drives
The pressure on organisations to build and maintain robust security policies to safeguard their sensitive data is ever-increasing. End-of-life asset disposition is one source of potential data breach that isn’t always considered, however as evidenced by Blancco’s study with Ontrack, up to 42% of second hand hard drives sold on eBay still had residual user data on.
Secure Computer Recycling and Disposal (SCRD) utilises Blancco Drive Eraser, reducing the risk of costly security breaches by permanently erasing sensitive data from HDDs and complex SSDs in desktops/laptops and servers.
Through patented SSD data deletion process, there is now a secure method to wipe data on storage devices – regardless of underlying technology – to safely dispose of drives.
Items in this category include smart phones, tablets, iPad’s and other handheld mobile computing devices. These devices are erased by specialised Blancco mobile erasure software, which ensures that all user data areas are overwritten. Any devices that cannot be erased by this method is destroyed by our onsite mechanical shredder.
SCRD have the capacity to accommodate the simultaneous secure erasure of 500 desktops and laptops.
Our dedicated wiping infrastructure can also accommodate the concurrent data deletion of 300+ individual hard drives in SAS, SATA or FC formats in either 2.5” or 3.5” size.
Any hard drive that fails the data deletion process is destroyed by our purpose built onsite hard drive shredder with a final shred width of 1.5” for 3.5″ server/desktop and laptop HDDs in either format and a final shred width of 3/8” for SSD drives.
