Plant Based Shredding: Our highly trained staff will inventory and securely transport your hard drives, data tapes, and other unwanted electronics to our secure facility via GPS tracked and monitored vehicles. At the DataShield Plant, all material is re-inventoried and hard drives, flash media, data tapes, and other data containing devices are readied for shredding. Hard drives are scanned and destroyed using dedicated destruction equipment designed to render them unusable. A Transfer of Custody document is provided when material is initially removed from the customer’s facility and a Certificate of Destruction issued once everything has been processed and destroyed. 

On Site Shredding: For highly secure projects, on-site shredding ensures all of your hard drives and data tapes are completely shredded before leaving your facility. DataShield will shred inside your facility or on our dedicated data destruction vehicle at a high-rate of speed. A Certificate of Destruction is issued at the conclusion of the project listing all items by serial number, item type, make and model.
