Media destruction is the most permanent way to securely erase your confidential data from storage media. At SalvageData, we are able to reconstruct data from cracked or broken storage media using sophisticated reconstruction techniques, so we know exactly what steps must be taken to ensure that data destruction is sufficient and permanent.
Information that is no longer needed, but could pose a security or confidentiality risk if released, should be sanitized by our specialists. At SalvageData, we follow industry-standard procedures and techniques, to ensure that the data cannot be recognized or reconstructed, even by trained experts.
As specified in the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (DOD 5220.22-M), section 5-705, successful data destruction requires burning, shredding, pulping, melting, mutilation, chemical decomposition, or pulverizing, depending on the type of media to be destroyed. After destruction, the residue is examined by specialists to confirm that information contained on the drive cannot be reconstructed.
SalvageData uses methods published by the Department of Defense for destruction of highly classified data including pulverizing, shredding, and incineration. Compared to our data erasure service, which allows you to reclaim the hard drives for further use, media destruction is faster and does not require us to ship the drives back to you. Our state-of-the-art laboratory can process hundreds of 3.5" platters every hour, so even large scale media destruction can be completed and the results confirmed within a few days.
