What Happens to the Data on Hard Drives, Phones, and Other Data-Containing Devices
Securis has industrial shredders for all data-containing devices. Even small items such as solid-state drives are protected with Securis’ microshredder that grinds pieces down to the NSA’s recommended particle size of 2mm. Securis employs an HPM-1 Degausser which guarantees that data is completely erased. The HPM-1 degausser’s listing in the NSA DEPL guarantees you that your data is completely gone and will not end up in the wrong hands.
