On Site Hard-Drive Destruction Services Included:

  • On Site Hard Drive Destruction
  • Serial Number Capturing with Audit Report
  • Hard Drive destruction in our Mobile IT Lab
  • Shredding and Recycling of each drive
  • Certificate of Destruction and Recycling

PTS offers cost effective destruction solutions for failed or older hard drives. Our shredding or pinning mutilation process is the most secure destruction process in the industry. A mobile shredder will arrive at your site and scan your drives.  Drives are then placed in a tamper-proof bin, and escorted into our Mobile IT Lab where the drives are shredded into minute pieces. The pinning mutilation process takes security to another level. When the client’s security policy will not allow the drive to leave their office, we can provide the pinning mutilation process right in their office. After the drives have been pinned, they are loaded into a tamper-proof box and shredded off site. Both services will ensure all the data is absolutely destroyed and can never fall into the wrong hands. Both processes are compliant with HIPPA, SOA, GLBA, DOD and PCI as well as local and government privacy laws.
