Secure Data Destruction Services:
Data erasure (also called data clearing or data wiping) is a software-based method of overwriting data that completely destroys all electronic data residing on a hard disk drive or other digital media. Permanent data erasure goes beyond basic file deletion commands, which only remove direct pointers to data disk sectors and make data recovery possible with common software tools. Unlike degaussing and physical destruction, which render the storage media unusable, data erasure removes all information while leaving the disk operable, preserving IT assets and the environment.
The Importance of Data Destruction
Data destruction is required whenever storage media changes hands from corporate ownership to the secondary market. Because hard drives and other forms of storage media often contain sensitive information pertaining to a company’s clients or customers, all data must be destroyed to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands. Failure to do so is a breach of confidentiality and can place the company at risk of facing financial liability legal prosecution, and public disgrace
Impress Computers uses state-of-the-art data destruction software that effectively destroys all of the contained data on a disk so the hard drive can be re-used in another capacity.
With so many different ways to store information on so many different hard drives these days it is almost impossible not to keep any confidential and secure data on your computer. Although you deleted most of your sensitive files, your data is still somewhere on your hard drive. That is why Impress Computers offers complete data destruction and asset recovery using NIST 800-88 and DoD 5200.22m compliances.
