We at ProTek Recycling know that data security is of the utmost importance to you. And like environmental responsibility, we want all of our clients to know exactly what happens with their data-containing devices and how we manage and eliminate their risk.
Software Destruction: All data on the hard drive is overwritten at least three times with random number sequences. This renders all data irretrievable; however this does not destroy the drive itself.
Physical Destruction: This is the most secure method and is ideal for larger quantities of drives or storage media. The hard drive itself is destroyed either with by magnetic degaussing or physical shredding.
Large quantities of bare drives or equipment containing drives can be picked up by our staff. Small quantities (1-20 drives) may be mailed to our site for destruction. We will never view, copy, or otherwise access any data on hard drives that we receive. We can also remove the drives from equipment we pick up for recycling.
Exclusively ProTek: ProTek Recycling’s employees personally come to your office and bring your equipment directly back to our warehouse. We do not use subcontractors or third parties to pick up or transfer the equipment on ProTek’s behalf.
Certificate of Destruction: Receive a certificate verifying the complete deletion and destruction of data from your drives.
