The common problem is that deleted files are not really erased and so may be recovered by interested parties. Most file systems only remove the link to data, but even overwriting parts of the disk with something else or formatting it may not guarantee that the sensitive data is completely unrecoverable.

In recent years, the loss of sensitive data from Public and Corporate businesses has become a hot issue with the ICO imposing large financial fines.

One of the key areas where an organisation becomes vulnerable to this is at the point of disposing of the unwanted, old IT equipment after it has been refreshed. A lot of organisations do not give their old data, that is stored on the old equipment, the sufficient security consideration it deserves as this can often incur additional costs which are not budgeted for. There is a duty of care for the total life cycle of the equipment, including data.

We work with some of the largest public bodies in the UK and Corporate Companies in the world.

Our engineers will attend your site with our own custom built equipment to ensure they can undertake the data wiping activity. Our staff will create a comprehensive asset list on site of all the equipment that is being disposed of and will also remove all hard drives from the equipment. Hard drives will then be data wiped in our specialised equipment using Data Wiping software which is a CESG Infosec 5 approved. Once all data is wiped from your devices, a comprehensive report of the individual hard drives will be produced and a certificate is provided.


We understand how important it is that every device that we receive is disposed of correctly, so that the data is completely inaccessible. We take data wiping extremely seriously and are proud to have an excellent track record when it comes to correctly and successfully destroying sensitive information.

Our On-Site data wiping is second to none. We offer a bespoke solution to each customer to suit their individual requirements. We are big enough to deal with any requirement you have and small enough to offer you the customer service that gives you complete peace of mind.


We can offer both On and Off-Site data wiping services to provide the best service possible for you.

With our On-Site service, our certified engineers will attend your site to process your data wiping within your own controlled environment, and certificate them prior to leaving your premises.

We can also provide an Off-Site service where we return the equipment via tracked vehicles, to our secure warehouses and process them from there. All certificates would be sent to the client after completion of the service.

With the changes in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into play in 2018, it is imperative that all companies meet the standards set by the EU Parliament which we can help you adhere to.
