On-site Mobile Shredding

Data Destruction offers a state-of-the-art mobile shredding service. Our mobile data shredding truck can be deployed to your facility for on-site physical data destruction. With a capacity of shredding over 500 drives per hour, Data Destruction can handle any job. 

We don’t just hire anyone to pilot our mobile shredders. Our drivers have to pass our CDOT 10 panel drug testing, back ground checks and DMV checks. In addition, they are all trained and certified with process and ethics training.

We have many options available to you when it comes to physical hard drive destruction. We will scan in each unique serial number of your hard drive into our database and provide a detailed report of our certified data destruction. You can also choose to have the event recorded giving you complete accountability of each drive shredded. The video will show the face of the hard drive to be destroyed and show our on-site destroyer feeding the drive into the shredder. We will then copy the event onto a thumb drive for your records.

On-site Mobile Degaussing Services

Degaussing is the process of reducing or eliminating an unwanted magnetic data stored on tape and disk media such as computer and laptop hard drives, diskettes, reels, cassettes and cartridge tapes. Once this media is exposed to the powerful magnetic field of a degausser, the stored data is erased and is no longer retrievable. Data Destruction uses an HD-1T NSA approved and certified Degausser which can be used to erase all types of classified and sensitive information.

NIST Certified Wipe Services

NIST 800-88 is an approved National Institute of Standards and Technology method of sanitizing electronic data from hard drives and other electronic media. Media sanitation is a process of removing data from hard drives and other digital media devices. This process of wiping can only be done if the digital media can be read. For example if the hard drive is physically damaged, data wiping a drive will not be possible resulting in shredding as the preferred sanitation option. Our secure wiping room is equipped with full video recording and cypher locks. Authorized personnel are only allowed in the wipe room. All media is logged into our database and a certificate of destruction is provided which is in compliance with National Institute of Standards and Technology standards for your protection.

Department of Defense (DoD) Certified Wiping and Destruction Services

This practice of sanitation is actually overwriting the sectors of the hard drive with either 3 or 7 passes over the drive using different characters with each pass and then random characters on the last pass. Each company’s requirements might be slightly different so we can set up the algorithms with our DoD approved software to meet your needs. This practice is only feasible if the media has the ability to write to the sectors. Our practice is to shred the media if there are physical issues and we are unable to over-write the hard drive 3 to 7 times.

Our secure wiping room is equipped with full video recording and cypher locks. Authorized personnel are only allowed in the wipe room. All media is logged into our database and a certificate of destruction is provided which is in compliance with the Department of Defense standards for your protection.
