Secure Disk Eradication

Secure Disk Eradication

Ensure Private Customer Information & Other Critical Data does not leave your Facility

Sandpiper Provides Industry Leading Secure Disk Eradication Services

In most cases, you don’t have to shred or otherwise destroy failed disk or storage subsystems.  Any disk that can be returned to the vendor is money you save.

Sandpiper provides secure disk eradication services that meet DoD & DoE standards, Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, Payment Card Industry (PCI) as well as HIPAA and SEC regulatory compliance rules. We erase data on old or failed devices in a manner that does not allow it’s later recovery by unauthorized persons.

While it is simply good business sense to clean these devices of any data when they are retired, regulatory requirements may also need to be considered that dictate the protection of this data such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, Payment Card Industry (PCI) and others.
