E-Solutions: Hard Drive Shredding Made Easy
In an age where cyber security is a high priority and electronic information breaches are more common place than some would like to admit, its important to ensure the safety of your information and the information of your clients in every way you can. Whether you realize it or not, your end-of-life electronics can pose a huge threat to the confidentiality of your information. Electronic devices are capable of storing information on their hard drives and mother boards even after you have deleted it from a desktop or a server, meaning that just wiping the memory and then tossing your electronics at the local dump might not be the safest option if you’re looking to protect the information that was once stored there.
Whether you are upgrading your server system or outfitting your office with new computers, we want make sure you take the right steps to maintain the security of these devices, and we’re here to help! Augusta Data Storage offers e-solutions for your end-of-life electronics that are both safe and environmentally friendly. What does that mean? Instead of taking these items to the dump or letting them sit in a warehouse, we can securely destroy them for you. By utilizing a zero landfill operation that mechanically shreds, sorts, and separates electronics into scrap commodities, we reduce the environmental impact associated with disposal of these devices. Additionally, these scrap commodities are then recycled to make new products. Sounds like a win-win, right? That’s because it is. Not only is our facility capable of offering these services but our process is also R2 and RIOS certified, as well as maintaining an ISO 9001 certification for quality, an ISO 14001 certification for environmental management, and OHSAS 18001 certification for employee health and safety.
