Secure Data Erasure, Destruction Degaussing Services
Information leakage is a major threat to all organisations. IT departments often spent millions of dollars on access security, anti-virus and intrusion-protection. This security fortress becomes inadequate when dealing with information leakage via data storage sanitization. Data Terminator has the capability, competency and track record to provide organisations with effective data leakage protection solutions.
Data Terminator’s secure data sanitization processes are ISO 9001:2008 certified, the first in its class in Singapore, signifying our commitment and priority to organisations’ security needs.
Data Terminator’s secure data sanitization service covers all forms of electronic data storage media, which includes hard drive, magnetic tape, audio/video tape, optical media, flash media, static storage media, floppy and Zip cartridge, etc.
Besides data sanitization, Data Terminator also provides complete IT asset disposal solutions. Our capabilities include the management of the complete disposal process of asset verification, secure data sanitization and asset de-classification, proper destruction and disposal.
When a file is erased or deleted from your computer, the actual data in the file is not gone forever. The space utilized by that file is simply marked as “free” for use by other data. The case also applies to hard disks which are spoilt or with bad sectors. The fact is your data is still lurking in those hard disks that have no operational use.
Many people would think that once other data is written in that space, the original data becomes gone forever. However, with data recovery tools readily available, it is now possible to recover data even after it has been written over a few times.
Data Terminator provides secure and comprehensive data sanitization equipment and services with full compliance and quality to give our customers complete peace of mind. The secure data sanitization equipment used are all NSA-certified and our data sanitization process is ISO-certified.
Hard Disk & Tape Sanitization
One of the key solutions to eliminate the risk of data falling into the wrong hands is to degauss hard drives prior to disposal. Hard drive degaussers use powerful magnets or an electromechanical “pulse” to erase data from hard drives. Similarly, tapes should also be properly degaussed before disposal.
In fact, DoD Requirements call for hard drives to be degaussed in an NSA listed Degausser and then physically destroyed prior to disposal.
CD/DVD Optical Media Destruction
Destroying CD/DVD Optical Media doesn’t have to be a problem.
Data Terminator has a variety of machines to meet NSA/CSS Specifications for CD/DVD Optical Media Destruction.
IT Asset Disposal
Proper IT asset disposal is becoming more and more important not just on the environmental issues but also on data confidentiality.
Many organizations do not have the dedicated resources or the bulk quantity to justify the investment of procuring the equipment. They may choose to outsource such destruction and disposal. Outsourcing can be affordable and safe when done properly. If you choose this option, ask what methods will be used, where your items will be kept prior to destruction, or if there are any on-site services, what happens to destroyed waste, and what proof you will get that those items were actually destroyed.
Data security is an ongoing process, by being aware of the threats and understanding the destruction options, you will be in a much better position to protect your business and yourself. You will have complete peace of mind that you have left nothing behind.
Data Terminator provides complete IT asset disposal solutions. Our capabilities include the management of the complete disposal process of asset verification, secure data sanitization and asset de-classification, proper destruction and disposal.
DT provides a high quality degaussing service based on ISO 9001:2008 Certified – Secure Electronic Data Erasure & Destruction Services. We provide a quality checking process to demagnetizes the disk so that all data stored on the disk is permanently destroyed. Thus making the disk impossible to be recovered by any recovery tools available.
Hard Disk Erasure
DT provides an ISO 9001 Certified for high quality Secure Electronic Data Erasure Services on any storage media such as PATA, SATA, or SCSI. There are many options of erasure. One of it is Software Erase, by overwriting the sector of the disk with a new value with certain amount of passes to ensure that the data is harder to recover. But we also provides a better option than software erase, “Secure Erase” which initiate the drive internal secure erase command, security erase unit, based on the ATA specification by the T13 technical committee.
Hard Disk Cloning
Data Terminator uses tools such as the PSIClone™ to “clone” hard disks for customers’ usage. The PSIClone™ is packed with useful features for the forensic investigator. Designed with forensic data integrity in mind, a key feature of PSIClone™ is that the user is unable to write to the ‘source’ side of the device. With the included data recovery software, PSIClone has everything you need to perform data recovery right out of the box.
While PSIClone™ is a drive-to-drive cloning and imaging device, it stands out from other such devices because PSIClone™ has the ability to perform a robust compression while imaging a drive thereby allowing you to place images of multiple drives on one dump drive. This saves time and money.
