Witness the Hard Drive Shredding Process first hand
Vyta understands the critical importance of secure data disposal for our clients. That’s why we offer the option to watch us shred your devices in a special viewing area within our trucks.
Furthermore, we offer our clients CCTV footage of the shredding process. This footage includes a search feature based on serial numbers, allowing clients to quickly locate and view the destruction of specific devices, granting them total peace of mind.
Our Efficient and Secure Onsite Shredding Process
DiskShred operates an efficient and secure 8-stage process for onsite shredding:
No matter which type of storage media you need to dispose of, our mobile industrial shredders boast exceptional power. They can efficiently convert these media on-site, providing you with a clear view of the process, and in record time.
Eco-Friendly Data Shredding Practices
Vyta is committed to Sustainability. After completing the onsite shredding process, we ensure the recycling of all shredding debris.
Shredding debris may contain recyclable materials like aluminium or copper, which we can repurpose to help create new equipment. Furthermore, this process also helps to reduce the carbon footprint of the original device.
Enhancing Data Security with an Encrypted Asset Register
More than 80% of our clients request that their items are tracked as part of the shredding process, ensuring that they have confirmation of the data destruction of individual devices.
To facilitate this request, we create an encrypted asset register for our clients’ highly confidential hard drives and storage media.
Additionally, the register facilitates effortless searching by media type (e.g. hard disks, media tapes, CDs), asset tag (serial number or other identifiers), quantity, and the date and time of shredding.
