Does a Hard Drive Eraser Really Provide Enough Security?

When it’s time to get rid of a hard drive or its data, there are many methods you can use – but very few of them are truly secure. Simply bending the drive may make it so it’s hard to run, but someone who is dedicated enough could dismantle it and put the data-containing “platter” into new hardware to access the information. Erasing the data with software is known not to work for situations that require extreme security. Then, special data recovery software can resurrect the supposedly-deleted secrets. Even degaussing the drive won’t work if a snoop has the right equipment. What can be done?

You Need to Truly Destroy the Hard Drive’s Platter

Only actual destruction of the data-containing hard drive platter ensures the security of that information. For this reason, our equipment is designed to do just that. It will rip, tear, and mangle both the platter and its housing until the entire unit is nothing but ground-up shreds that can never be read again. This is perfect for the times when you need to be positively sure that the data remains secret. It is recommended for complying with HIPAA regulations, NDAs, regulations regarding personally-identifiable information, keeping company secrets truly secret, and other such situations.
