Data Destruction Services

Secure, onsite mechanical shredding

Ensuring data is securely destroyed is critical for any organization, especially with the new DoD, HIPAA, and PCI compliance regulations regarding the protection of private or classified data. With our asset disposition services, disk drives can be physically destroyed at the customer’s request, or if the drive still has value on the open market, data is destroyed via a multiple-pass “data wipe”. After the wipe is complete, the drive is verified to ensure all data is unrecoverable, and if verification fails, the drive is physically destroyed.

North American Systems brings hassle-free data destruction to your loading dock with our mobile mechanical shredder.
