What is Hard Drive Shredding?

Hard drive shredding is a process that involves physically destroying hard drives using specialised equipment. The hard drives are fed into a shredder, which cuts them into small, unrecoverable pieces. This method ensures that all data stored on the hard drives is completely destroyed and cannot be retrieved by any means.

Why do you need IT Asset Management?

There are a number of benefits of having a thorough and detailed ITAM strategy in place for your business, including:

  • Improved operations to ensure your business remains compliant and operates legally within regulatory frameworks
  • Improved security, ensuring data is protected and effectively managed
  • Reductions in costly downtime due to broken, outdated or inefficient technology
  • Cost-effective procurement throughout the lifecycle of business IT tech
  • Ability to safely and securely dispose of tech equipment, ensuring the complete destruction of secure data

Why is Hard Drive Shredding important for your business?

In today’s digital age, businesses store vast amounts of sensitive data on their hard drives. To prevent the data from falling into the wrong hands, it is crucial that the data is not accessible before the hard drive is disposed of. Shredding the hard drives is the most secure way to accomplish this, as the process physically destroys them, preventing data recovery from being possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

The choice between on-site and off-site hard drive shredding depends on your organisation’s specific needs and preferences. On-site shredding offers convenience and transparency, while off-site shredding may be more suitable for larger volumes or if you have limited space at your location.

Although other methods, like overwriting and degaussing, may make the data unreadable, they are not as effective as physically shredding the hard drive. This method ensures complete destruction of data. Therefore, if you want to dispose of your old hard drives, it is highly recommended that you use a professional hard drive shredding service to ensure the complete destruction of your sensitive data.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recommends physical destruction as the most secure method for hard drive disposal. MBH Global’s hard drive shredding services adhere to these standards.
