Data security services: Hard drive destruction

With defence-grade security credentials, Greenbox sets the standard. We offer the highest level of security from start to finish. That means secure transport, secure facilities, secure sanitisation and destruction processes, and security-cleared staff.

What we do

1. Data destruction

Greenbox offers a range of data destruction services to suit customer needs, including security levels that reflect each operating environment. We use industry-leading data destruction software, retain itemised digital wipe records for use in future audits, and operate to Australian Standard – ISM 2016 Controls. Our data destruction services can scale to the largest project requirements: in excess of 1,500 drives per day.

2. Hard drive degaussing

Degaussing is used to destroy data on hard drives and other magnetic media. Next to physical destruction, it is the only way to completely destroy data, and can be completed before recycling. Greenbox offers degaussing at the customer site, or at one of our four secure national facilities.

3. Hard drive shredding

Physically destroying a hard drive ensures that information is 100% unrecoverable. Our services cover secure collection and transportation by appropriately cleared personnel. We record serial numbers and provide a Certificate of Destruction.
