Safeguard your data, your brand, your future with Exit Technologies’ secure data destruction.
Hard drives often bear sensitive information, from identities to intellectual property. Removing that information completely can be tricky as reformatting only readies the drive to be used by a computer. But does that mean you need to pay $10+ per drive for the data to be truly unrecoverable? Or worse, pay to shred the working hard drives into industrial waste? There’s a better way with certified data destruction.
Why Trust Us With Your Data?
We use the most advanced technology in the industry to ensure you data is erased. We’ll even triple check our work if you request us to.
Exit Technologies has been a family-run R2 certified company for over 25 years and your trust is paramount to our success.
We do our best to bring you high quality R2 certified data erasure at cost-effective competitive industry rates.
We stand behind our work and provide detailed serialized reports with a certificate of destruction for each serial number.
Real Data on How You Can Protect Your Data
Drives are composed of palladium platters, and data is written to physical points by changing the polarity of a bit. To acquire data from the drive, the polarities are read. As long as those polarities are intact, the information can be read. That means even if the drives are shredded, the information could still be read using very specialized equipment.Is it possible to truly erase your hard drives? Yes, simply write 0’s over every bit. This changes the polarity of all the palladium bits making the data truly gone. Sounds easy enough, however not all software and hardware can access the drive in its entirety. Some of the data may be hidden from the operating system or bus. That’s why you should trust an expert to securely erase your data.
Make sure the process is as good as the technology. Even if the technology is perfect, if one of the drives gets left behind it’s all for naught.
The Process of Data Destruction
Chain of Custody
From your facility to destruction the drive carries the sensitive data. So it is important to know who has access to it at all times. Once your equipment is palletized, we send a major truck carrier to securely pick up the equipment for transit. Locked dedicated trucks are available upon request. We receive at our R2 certified facility and lock the hard drives in a secure room to be erased.
Overwriting Every Bit
We use an array of systems that access the hard drives directly without hardware or software-based manipulation. First, the drive is tested to make sure it will wipe properly. Then we use software to write 0’s over every bit and verify that every bit reads “0”. While the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) asserts that a single pass is sufficient, we have triple pass available upon request.
Each drive has a unique serial number. So to ensure each and every drive was wiped, you have a certificate of destruction for each serial number.
