Hard Drive Shredding and SSD Pulverization

Shredding for hard drives, tapes and solid state drives. Always available offsite and onsite.

When you need complete, absolute destruction of hard drives, magnetic tape, motherboards, tablets, cell phones and more, you want shred. For SSDs, the shred is so fine that nothing is left but dust.

Stop data breaches

You know the risk of data sliding out the door with retired or expired IT equipment. Security breaches cost far more than fines. Reputation damage, lost customers and lost revenue are resting on a job that must be well done.

Onsite shredding of hard drives, tapes and other IT devices is the first and strongest defense against a data offsite data breach. It’s almost always the low cost option.

Solid state drives (SSDs) need pulverization as fine as 2 mm to ensure 100% data eradication because they store vast amounts of data on small flash memory chips. Final result? A pile of dust.

Picking the right data destruction partner is one of the most important decisions you can make to protect confidential information and client relationships.

“The experience in KSC was outstanding. Your crew showed up motivated and organized, straight to work. We completed the project with a total of 2450 drives [shredded]”
