Offsite Shredding and Destruction

When the time comes to dispose of retired IT assets, it’s important to consider the most appropriate method of protecting the sensitive data on any hard disks or tape storage contained within each machine. You need to consider the security of your organization as well as any federal or state security regulations that might be applicable to your industry.

Many organizations opt to destroy retired data storage assets to prevent data falling into the wrong hands. CentricsIT offers secure offsite data destruction services that provide an easy way for organizations to properly dispose of their retired assets with peace of mind, as well as onsite data erasure and destruction services.

A professional from CentricsIT will pick your assets up from your preferred location, or our in-house logistics team will coordinate with you to have an insured dedicated courier deliver your assets to our headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Once we have your assets in our possession, we will destroy or shred the disks or tape and provide you with all of the necessary documentation you would require to pass a future security audit.

Data Erasure Process

Industry-Leading Data Erasure Practices

Many organizations opt to avoid data destruction in favor of data erasure. The reasons can range from the desire to reuse the device to the intention to resell on the secondary market. CentricsIT deploys industry-leading software and data erasure techniques that maintain the integrity of your device while completely eradicating all data to every state and federal standard (HIPAA, NISPOM, HITRUST, PCI, etc.).

Our services guarantee data will be securely erased from PCs, laptops, servers, smartphones, tablets, and all other storage devices. We utilize the most advanced data erasure process solution on the market to meet the unique data erasure needs of any organization. Once we erase the data stored on your assets, data recovery is impossible. You will be provided with a certificate of data erasure as proof.

Following erasure, CentricsIT will provide your organization with a comprehensive report, which details the erasure and provides proof of secure data eradication. These reports are tamper-proof and verifiable, ensuring your compliance to pass any security audit. The details of the report include:

  • Hardware condition

  • Serial numbers and asset tags

  • The method used to complete the erasure and who completed the procedure

Compliance and Peace of Mind

Every service provided by CentricsIT is backed by our Certificate of Secure Data Erasure or Certificate of Secure Data Destruction. You will receive this certificate, along with detailed reporting, when your services are completed.

Security certificates and reports are important documents to have for compliance and auditing purposes. CentricsIT will make every effort to accommodate your logging and reporting requirements to help you remain compliant by any standards, whether internal to your organization or mandated by any governing authority.

For your hardware that is still marketable, CentricsIT has a surplus IT remarketing and consignment program that helps you reclaim data from your retired IT assets.
