Benefits of On-Site Shredding: The Ultimate Security Solution

In today’s ever changing times, it is vital that businesses properly dispose of sensitive data and materials when they are no longer needed. With issues including identity theft, security breaches and fraud on the rise and increasingly making the headlines, as well as ever changing legislation requiring organizations to follow certain procedures and protocol, it has never been more important to ensure the secure and responsible destruction of documents and other media.

Those looking for security reasons, or even required by law to destroy certain documents or hardware after use are faced with a variety of choices to make while deciding how to go about doing so. Perhaps the most obvious and important of these decisions is that of whether to shred on-site or off-site, with the on-site solution increasingly seen as the better and indeed safest of the two options.

The negative impact of off-site shredding is really the severance of the chain-of-custody when disposing confidential information. When private information is taken off-site for destruction, confidential materials are often handled by multiple parties out of sight of the source organization, thus increasing the chance of error and fraud which can result in significant financial loss.

At PROSHRED®, we pride ourselves on our on-site shredding solutions, which offer numerous advantages over their off-site counterparts. These benefits include:

  • Sensitive information and documents never leave the company’s premises. With on-site shredding, the documents to be shredded never leave the site intact, thus preventing the compromise or loss of any important data or materials.
  • PROSHRED® offers you and your staff the ability to watch the shredding process via closed-circuit monitors. On-site shredding ensures that confidential materials are shredded in front of your location, offering total peace of mind for any security conscious business, and the ability to watch the process.
  • On-Site shredding is convenient. When you use PROSHRED® for your shredding needs, we come to you with our state-of-the-art shredding trucks, saving you the trouble of having to deal with any step of the shredding process.
  • Any documents can be added to a shred job. Got a last minute file or document that urgently needs disposing of? With PROSHRED® on-site shredding, you can quickly add some additional documents to a job.
  • Using PROSHRED® on-site shredding can protect and even enhance your business’ reputation. Shredding on-site tells customers that you take their security seriously, and in a world where trust and belief in business is at an all-time low, such faith and confidence from consumers is invaluable.
