Comprehensive Destruction Solutions
The amount of data that businesses keep on computer hard drives and other data components is unprecedented in history. With data being used in such integral parts of our lives everyday, it's vital that a secure hard drive destruction service be used whenever a hard drive has reached its end-of-life. This ensures that confidential and highly-sensitive emails, invoices, budgetary numbers and internal documents aren't accessed by outside individuals. The average amount of data on a typical hard-drive can hold over 107,300,000 pages – or about 214,700 reams of paper -- that equates to almost 8,900 normal four-drawer business filing cabinets!

Total Data Destruction
Even though you may be following the law for destruction of your confidential paper documents, you need to take precautions to destroy data on devices that store your electronic information. And it's just not enough to simply erase information from a drive and expect that the data cannot be accessed. Once files have been erased on a drive, they can still be accessed by an individual skilled in information retrieval. Even if the drive is formatted, some of the information may still be accessible. The only way to ensure that information cannot be accessed once the hard drive leaves your premises is to engage the use of a hard drive destruction service.
