Data destruction must be done properly and must be permanent. Because often it concerns confidential and sensitive data. At 7Digits we are ISO certified (27001, 14001 and 9001) and data destruction is our specialism. A reliable partner with the highest service in terms of data erasure and destruction. We offer extensive reporting options and full customization as well. To name a few: on- and off- site erasing-, (hybrid)destruction- of data carriers with optional picture taking. Equally important refurbishing-, repurposing-, value recovery- services and last but not least; we also facilitate transport.
Data erasure or data destruction?
Two small differences One goal. Data erasure is the software overwriting of the data on the data carrier. This makes the data carrier completely unreadable, but can easily be reused and retain its value. Efficient renovation processes ensure circularity. As a certified ITAD partner, we offer the best data erasure methods with software from YouWipe (Gold Certified ITAD partner), Certus and Blancco.
Data destruction is the physical destruction of the data carrier. The data carriers are dismantled and destroyed with our advanced shredding or degaussing machines. As a result, the data carriers are no longer usable. They are shredded and recycled. The materials go to one of our partners for the recovery of (scarce) raw materials. We work together with Dutch recycling companies, all of which are Weeelabex certified.
Our data destruction methods
You want to erase data 100% securely and contribute to circularity. At 7Digits we guarantee this and your decommissioned hardware gets a second life. But there is more: conscious use of raw materials and considerably less e-waste. Our solutions for professional data erasure and destruction are suitable for all types of data carriers. That is why we also offer several data deletion methods.
Processing of decommissioned ICT-Hardware. Our operational data destruction procedures are supplied with a serial number destruction certificate upon request. And even – if desired – with photo recordings. The data has been completely and reliably overwritten. The advantage of this method is that your data carrier can be put back into use.
Degaussen stands for completely removing the data from hardware. It is safe and permanent data removal. Re-use is therefore no longer possible. However, the data carrier is recycled after degaussing.
The shredder literally destroys data carriers such as hard drives, USB sticks, memory sticks or other hardware. Re-use is no longer possible. Destruction and recycling takes place in accordance with DIN 66399, the European standard. We also offer comprehensive reporting and transport services for shredding.
