Hard Drive Destruction Services
The volume of data stored on a hard drive or backup tape can represent an enormous amount of sensitive or confidential corporate or customer information.
As your business faces a rising tide of privacy breach threats, it's not enough to simply erase data from your media before it's discarded. With easily available tools, identity theft and business fraud criminals can still access your deleted digital files. Fortunately, there's a more secure and reliable solution for destroying your data.
Western Michigan's Privacy Protection Partner
Kent Record Management's hard drive and media destruction service makes sure your data is eliminated for good. We collect the outdated and expired media assets from your business and transport them in GPS-tracked vehicles to our media destruction plant in Muskegon, for secure destruction. Our state-of-the-art shredders turn your devices into tiny particles making it impossible to reconstruct them. The shredded material is then sent to our authorized recycling partner for recycling. We offer secure destruction of the following electronic media:
- Hard drives
- Backup tapes
- Portable thumb drives and USB devices
After your media is shredded, we present you with a Certificate of Destruction documenting your company's compliance with state and federal privacy laws.
