Specialists in Hard Drive and IT Equipment Shredding

Why is Data Destruction important? 

Hard Drive Shredding is crucial if your electronic devices contain highly sensitive data or top secret information. With increasing legislation for data protection, it is essential that such information is destroyed safely and correctly. The vulnerability of information stored on PC hard drives is a recognised security risk as unlike other computer data storage media the hard drive always stays with the device. This means that every time a computer leaves a company's control, all of the data and company information will go with it. Even if the hard drive breaks down, the storage platters will still contain information which could be accessed once repaired.

To ensure your confidential information doesn't get into the wrong hands, XPO IT Services Ltd can offer you a variety of methods to help destroy all data.

Our Data Destruction Services Include:

• On-Site & Off-Site Hard Drive Shredding 
• Blancco Data Erasure
• Hard Drive Crushing 
• Document Destruction

Hard Drive Crushing

For hard drives that contain data that isn't quite so sensitive and doesn't need to be shredded to such a small size, we can offer you a Hard Drive Crushing service. The HDC is portable and runs off a standard 240v outlet, therefore can be taken on-site to be used at your business. The crusher will drill through the hard drive's spindles and physically create ripples in the platters making it impossible to recover data. 

It can crush between 60-100 HDD’s in an hour and is CESG approved and comes with the CESG Claims Tested Mark. Once crushed, the Hard Drive waste is then securely boxed and taken back to our site to put through our Hard Drive Shredder to get the hard drive waste even finer.

We can also offer you Data Recovery Services

XPO IT Services Ltd are working in partnership with Kroll Ontrack to offer you the expertise to recover data from all situations.
