Onsite erasure solutions for hard drives

Onsite erasure solutions for hard drives

Hard drive erasure is the perfect solution for lease returns, large storage hard drives or high value equipment.

Also called wiping or sanitizing, erasure uses software to permanently erase work files, personal files, operating systems, and installed programs. The result is a hard drive that is wiped clean. And verified to be data free. Secure. Compliant.

Protect your clients

Erasure is a proven method to use in preventing a data breach. It’s also the absolute best way to retain value for lease returns, reuse and remarketing. And, it’s flexible to meet the demands of any type of work site: desktop or enterprise setups.

Guardian also offers remote software erasure via the cloud combined with self-pack programs for furloughed and remote field workers that are returning their equipment.

Understanding the customer situation, evaluating risk and responsiveness are the criteria to use when selecting the right data destruction partner. Protecting your customers’ data and your relationship is one of the most important decisions you can make.

How to erase a hard drive

Erasure of each hard drive (depending on the size and the DOD/NIST erasure protocol) can range from one to 24 hours per item. For desktop equipment (including laptops, tablets, etc.), each piece of equipment is erased one by one. Enterprise equipment can be securely erased in batches of over 200 simultaneously. Field and remote laptops are erased via the cloud before shipping to ensure there’s no data risk if the unit is lost in transit.
