Data Destruction
and Disposal

Data Destruction – The process for Disposing of Redundant IT Equipment doesn’t logically fit into any one department, encompassing IT, Waste, Data Governance, Procurement, Corporate and Social Responsibility , yet in the majority of instances the task is assigned to just one, this often results in areas of significant importance being overlooked with grave consequences.

General Data Protection Regulations are quite clear about who is responsible, and although there is often some confusion as to who should perform this task, the regulators have no doubt as to who should be responsible. We provide a range of data destruction services that guarantee 100% information security for businesses, local authorities, and healthcare organisations.

As with all IT equipment handled by Zixtel our first priority is your data security and legal compliance. We are industry specialists committed to improving the industries standards, through education, information and quality in service. Data Loss affects us all, information on us is held in more places than we would care to imagine, data that would no doubt enlighten the person whom it refers to exists and it’s safe to say as Information Technology enhances; this fact will become ever more prevalent!

The existence of our data doesn’t cease to exist when a computer or server is replaced and neither should the protective measures we take.

As specialists in this area, our expertise affords our clients complete peace of mind, our processes are strict; as they need to be and we only follow methods approved to Military Standards. When it comes to your businesses reputation, intellectual property or your clients information you cannot afford to take risks. We can help you with destroying data stored on hard drives, tape drives, mobile phones, memory cards and other forms of electronic media so that it is completely unreadable and cannot be accessed or used for unauthorised purposes. When data is deleted, it is no longer readily accessible by the operating system or application that created it, but deleting a file is not enough!

We use Certus Erasure Software to safely clean data from your pld hard drives – Certus Erasure software is CESG certified, you can see the certificate on our Accreditations page.
