Why is Hard Drive Shredding Necessary?

If you have private information stored on an outdated device, such as business records or personal photos, clicking the “delete” button to remove the files and then throwing away the device in the trash seems like enough precaution, but it doesn’t ensure proper information security. The same goes for downloading security software and antivirus firewalls: while these protect your data while you’re using the device, such measures don’t protect your data once the device is disconnected and discarded. Even “deleted” information leaves behind traces on hard drives that can lead to breaches by data thieves if the physical device is not destroyed properly. Our hard drive destruction process obliterates the hard drive, making the retrieval of any files impossible so your records stay permanently erased.

How We Destroy Hard Drives Securely

We rely on state-of-the-art shredding equipment to completely destroy your hard disk drives (HDD). Our mobile shred trucks are equipped with industrial shredders that use cross-cut shredding and other capabilities home shredders don't have. The goal is to make the destroyed hard drive non-functional so any data stored on it cannot be retrieved. We can perform our HDD shredding services at your location using one of our trucks, or we can pick up your electronics using a secure chain of custody to protect your privacy, and take them to our facility for offsite shredding. Besides hard drives, we can also securely destroy products or shred papers and files using either one-time or ongoing services.

Electronic Waste Recycling

Not only is throwing away your old hard drives and electronics risky for your information security, but it can also be bad for the environment. That's why PROSHRED® Baltimore recycles all of our electronic waste from shredding through trusted local recycling partners in the Baltimore area. Our business is committed to protecting the environment, and we take our responsibility to it seriously. We also follow all applicable federal and state environmental regulations to ensure we can protect your data while maintaining a net-zero or positive impact on the environment.
