Shredding Solutions

South Seas Data utilizes an industrial shredding device to complete physical destruction on-site at our facility.  The approved method for sanitizing an electronic storage media device depends on the security impact level of the information stored on it.

We have options available to decommission full computer systems or devices. We remove the media and conduct the physical destruction as well as process the rest of the device correctly with our partner in electronic recycling. We can provide various service needs to your organization one time project or on a regularly scheduled basis.
