When your business sells, recycles, or disposes of your digital storage devices, the data contained on them is at risk. Simply deleting files from a computer will not protect your sensitive information should it ever fall into the wrong hands.
CompuCycle provides certified and secure data sanitization services. We employ industry best practices that meet all regulations and ensure clients’ compliance with data privacy and destruction laws. And our environmentally friendly data wiping and recycling processes help you stay green while staying safe.
The following are a few reasons why CompuCycle is a best-in-class secure data destruction provider:
CompuCycle can deliver unparalleled levels of security for your information because we’ve put a vigilant chain of custody in place to protect your devices at every step of the journey.
CompuCycle offers two methods of achieving data sanitization that targets the software and allows the hardware to be reused or sold:
No matter which method you choose, CompuCycle certifies all data sanitation performed in our facility complies with the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-88 guidelines and U.S. Department of Defense standards (DOD 5220.22-M).
Upon completion, you receive a Hard Drive audit report listing hard drive make, model, serial number, and size. If the hard drive is in the parent machine, the report will also list the parent machine’s serial number. You will also receive a Certificate of Hard Drive Sanitization listing the number of drives sanitized for your records.
When you need a fast, cost-effective way to destroy data, call on CompuCycle’s physical shredding services. In moments, our commercial shredders reduce all kinds of data-bearing devices into thousands of tiny fragments, permanently disabling them.
Items that can be shredded include:
Upon completion, you receive a Certificate of Destruction listing the number of hard drives shredded for your records. We also take care to ensure all applicable metal refuse is recycled responsibly.
Although we go to great lengths to guarantee your data’s safety as we sanitize it at our facility, we understand some clients may be more comfortable keeping their devices within eyesight at all times. That’s why we offer our full range of services, both data shredding and data sanitization erasure, on-site at your place of business.
We dispatch our fleet of box trucks up to 26 feet long across Houston every day for off-site data sanitization. If you’re not located near us, never fear. CompuCycle is nation-wide! For assistance outside our pickup area, we will arrange for either a local-to-you, certified recycling service, or a trusted transportation logistics firm to help.
Numerous laws and regulations govern the ways consumer and commercial data must be handled. CompuCycle goes above and beyond to keep our customers in full compliance with all standards of their particular industries, from HIPAA and HITECH for medical companies to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the Fair Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) for businesses.
We also uphold your business’s dedication to green initiatives by following best practices for sustainable electronics recycling, such as SERI’s R2:2013 standard.
You’ll never be left wondering if a particular hard drive was destroyed or is still in use somewhere around your office. Our software generates an inventory report showing each memory device being scanned and logged before and after sanitization. This report will be accompanied by either a Certificate of Data Sanitization (if you’re using data erasure) or a Certificate of Data Destruction (if you’re having the devices shredded).
This way, you can easily verify your inventory status and prove your compliance with all governing regulations.
