The Process

Click here for a datasheet.

We destroy all data passed to us safely and securely.

Any erasable functioning media is wiped using a multipass binary overwipe. Any non-functioning or non-erasable media is physically destroyed. Whichever method is used, the data is completely and irretrievably eradicated.

Our destruction process meets or exceeds many internationally recognised standards including the Communications Electronics Security Group (CESG) Commercial Product Assurance (CPA), NATO CONFIDENTIAL, NATO RESTRICTED, NATO SECRET and COSMIC TOP SECRET, Defence INFOSEC Product Co-Operation Group UK (DIPCOG) and exceeding standards provided by the USA Department of Defense. A data destruction certificate is provided at the end of the process.

Certification levels

All data is processed in the same way, but we offer a number of different levels of certification:

Standard
A general certificate covering the list of equipment processed, stating all data passed to us has been destroyed.
Premium
A detailed certificate comprising lists of asset tags or serial numbers provided by the data erasure software certified to exceed the standards listed above.

Our standard service is free of charge, the premium service is £6 per item. (an item is considered as any data carrying media including discs, data tapes, mobile phones, usb keys, flash memory, etc). If you have items you don’t need wiped or destroyed please let us know.
