Cybersecurity is a top concern across every industry, with one data breach having the ability to kill a business's hard-earned reputation. At NCWS, we work with information systems professionals across the country and we fully realize the concerns today's companies have. Even with all the measures that systems administrators take to safeguard their networks, they still face risks on a daily basis.
One of those risks comes from the equipment in their data centers and office spaces. IT professionals already know the importance of securing their equipment behind locked doors, with keycards for access. But do you protect your computers and servers once they're replaced? Too often once a device is taken offline, it's shifted to a storage area, where it awaits destruction. This is the period of a device's lifecycle when your business may unknowingly put your data at risk. NCWS's data destruction service takes care of that.
Data Destruction Services
As soon as your business decides to transport a piece of equipment offsite, data destruction becomes necessary. Each piece of equipment contains information, even if all files were stored on company servers. That information could be retrieved by a third party, who could use it for fraudulent purposes, putting your company and its customers at risk. NCWS removes each hard drive and uses a two-step process that ensures data can never be retrieved again. First, we erase the data using an industry-preferred process called degaussing. Once the data is completely neutralized, we shred the hard drive to further ensure nothing can be accessed. The result is that your equipment can be safely recycled or reused.
The Benefits of Onsite Service
One of the biggest deterrents of responsible hard drive destruction is transporting the equipment. Many IT departments are already limited on resources, and it can be extremely time-consuming to load up servers and computers to take to a data destruction facility. NCWS offers mobile hard drive destruction service, bringing our equipment to your business's location, where we handle picking up equipment and shredding it without it leaving the property. This allows you to see that destruction took place, giving you the peace of mind of knowing the data remained on your property at all times.
How It Works
When a business needs data equipment removed and responsibly recycled, a request for service kicks off the following process:
- Someone from our team contacts your team to get more information. We work up a quote and get back to you.
- Once you've decided to work with us, a project manager works with your team to arrange data destruction and dispose of your equipment in the way you prefer.
- Our mobile shredding equipment arrives at your location. Our team picks up all equipment to be taken offline and destroys all hard drives using our two-phase process.
- We will dispose of all equipment, taking it to a local recycling facility or repurposing it as designated by you.
If you plan to dispose of equipment, don't leave your data security to chance. Contact NCWS and learn how we can help you remove old equipment safely and conveniently.
