Destroying a hard drive’s sensitive data
For many businesses holding sensitive data – being able to erase hard drives securely is a must. This is because a simple hard drive wipe with software doesn’t magnetically remove the data from the actual hard disk itself.
Sensitive data, particularly if handled by security companies, the defence industry and other government departments need to be disposed of with the highest level of erasure, and without third parties being able to recover the data.
