Remote Hard Drive Erasure

Remove the data before it’s shipped. Without removing a single drive.

There’s only one way to be sure that a device coming back from a field employee isn’t an opening for theft in transit. And a possible data breach.

Remove the data before it’s shipped. Without removing a single drive.

Once the remote erasure is verified complete, the hardware is secure enough to be shipped and ready for redeployment or resale upon arrival and assessment.

Convert uncertainty to security

Your customers may know the risk of data and equipment that are languishing with remote or furloughed employees. With remote DOD erasure, they can securely and confidently move IT equipment from a remote spot to a central location.

Even if the equipment is lost in transit, the data has been thoroughly destroyed. The loss is just the hardware itself. The risk of a data breach was eliminated before the box was sealed.

All you need is an internet connection.

“Managing legacy data is the most important thing an organization can do to reduce risk and cost associated with electronic data.”

– A. Kershaw PC / Attorneys & Consultants

Secure Laptop Packing

Secure erasure before shipping kills in-transit data risk

Your goal is complete data destruction before the IT asset is returned. With Guardian Data Destruction’s remote hard drive erasure program combined with our packing, shipping and logistics expertise, we create custom programs that make device retrieval secure and easy.

As company policies shift to accommodate new workforce models, you can offer options that continue to ensure IT asset return without a hiccup. We work hand in hand with you to develop the exact services and reporting that make device return, renewal and refresh programs as secure and painless as possible.

Options include prepaid, shipping boxes sent directly to the field location and a return shipment to a central location or our warehouse for assessment, grading and storage. Whether it’s 30 laptops or 3000, we can build a secure program that meets your requirements.
