Onsite erasure solutions for hard drives
Available onsite or offsite
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 and 100% compliant.
Protect your clients
Erasure is a proven method in the prevention of a data breach. It’s also the 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.
Remote workforce? Guardian also offers remote software erasure via the cloud. Combined with our self-pack programs to get timely return of home-based assets while ensuring there’s no live data in transit.
Understanding the project parameters, evaluating risk and responsiveness are the criteria to use when selecting the right data destruction partner. Protecting your data and your client relationship is one of the most important decisions you can make.

How hard drive erasure works
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.
Do you have a preferred hard drive erasure protocol? Guardian uses the most secure and in demand providers including Blancco, Extreme Protocol Solutions, KillDisk, WhiteCanyon and BitRaser.
