Securis Debuts Mobile Hard Drive Shredding
CHANTILLY, Va. – Nov. 24, 2008 – Securis Inc., an emerging leader in computer recycling and data destruction management, is launching a mobile hard drive shredding service that takes secure data destruction a quantum leap forward. Total and irreversible erasure of the most confidential data is now available in a convenient, economical and environmentally sound process that achieves peace of mind from minuscule pieces of metal.
Securis now is the only company in the Washington, D.C., area – and one of the few in the nation – to offer specialized data wiping, degaussing, destruction, and shredding on-site in a mobile application, meeting the highest government and corporate standards.
Employing a new 4,000-lb dual shaft shredder, the process takes hard drives, backup tapes, cell phones, compact discs, floppies and other data storage devices and shreds them like paper. This removes the last faint shadow of doubt about the fate of secrets contained on data storage devices. They are simply gone forever. And the process means much less waste and more recyclables.
Just erasing a hard drive is not enough. Sensitive information lingers. Physical destruction of data storage devices is the best practice and the most effective. Shredding offers maximum protection, eliminating any possibility of reconstruction and retrieval. That’s assured data destruction.
Securis, with its staff of security-vetted U.S. citizens, processes, recycles and responsibly disposes of electronics from customers nationwide at its Chantilly, VA., and Albany, NY, facilities. Customers may witness the shredding of their tapes, hard drives, compact discs, floppy disks, thumb drives, cell phones, smart phones, and any other removable storage media, whether this is done at the customer’s location or at the Securis site.
“As our customers, and other large and small companies, become increasingly concerned about data security issues, certified data shredding and destruction has become a vitally important part of our business,” said Jeff Farber, senior vice president of sales and marketing. “Securis works with its customers to ensure that they are compliant with federal laws and regulations that require the safe and secure handling and destruction of their sensitive information.”
