When Physical Data Destruction is Necessary

As an added layer of protection, ARC Broward IT Asset Recovery offers physical destruction of hard drives. While we are confident in our ability to securely wipe all your sensitive data from your devices, we do offer physical destruction of hard drives if you would like an extra layer of protection for your business.

In order to physically destroy data, the device is put through an Ameri-Shred AMS-2000 Hard Drive Shredder, which is capable of shredding computer hard disks, copier hard drives, laptop and notepad computers, reel-to-reel tapes, cell phones, circuit boards and other assorted e-waste.

Notably, it is able to shred solid state drives, which many standard industrial shredders cannot do effectively as they are only able to shred to a 1’’ particle size allowing memory chips to slip through intact. Once shredded, it becomes impossible for any data to be recovered from the device ensuring your company’s security. 

This two-part practice ensures the security of any sensitive data stored and maintains the security and reputation of your business.  ARC Broward IT Asset Recovery provides a serialized Certificate of Data Destruction once the process has been completed.

As a member of NAID, the National Association for Information Destruction, you can be sure that regardless of which method your systems undergo, data sanitization or physical destruction, your data is securely and effectively destroyed.
