At NCS Global, we prioritize data security through various methods to ensure maximum protection. Our commitment to effective, compliant, and secure data destruction includes using their proprietary EcoErase software and other data destruction processes. 

Here are three essential data destruction methods NCS Global employs with each technique’s process, benefits, and uses.

Digital Erasure

Process:

  • Digital erasure relies on our proprietary EcoErase software, certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Department of Defense (DOD).
  • This software securely overwrites/erases data on any drive, making it impossible to recover the original information.
  • EcoErase can be tailored to meet specific data sanitization requirements, allowing for scalability based on the volume and sensitivity of the data.

Benefits:

  • Digital erasure is an eco-conscious option since it doesn’t involve physical waste or chemicals, and can allow for the reuse of the drive without compromising existing data.
  • Ideal for businesses focusing on sustainability and those with high data turnover.

Best Utilized in:

  • Corporate environments, particularly for routine data sanitization and disposal.
  • Industries with stringent compliance requirements, such as healthcare, finance, and government, where a certified method is essential. 
  • Companies looking for a cost-effective and eco-friendly data destruction solution.

Degaussing

Process:

  • Degaussing involves exposing the storage media to intense magnetic fields, effectively erasing all data stored on the device.
  • This method renders the media unreadable and is ideal for magnetic storage devices like hard drives, tapes, and floppy disks.

Benefits:

  • Degaussing leads to complete data destruction and leaves no chance for data recovery, even with advanced methods.
  • It’s a quick and efficient process that can handle large volumes of media.
  • Suitable for organizations that need immediate, secure data erasure.

Best Utilized in:

  • Businesses that rely heavily on magnetic storage media, such as those in legacy systems or specific archival environments.
  • Companies with a large magnetic media volume require swift and secure data destruction.
  • Industries where complete and irreversible data destruction is non-negotiable, such as government and defense sectors.

Physical Destruction

Process:

  • Physical destruction involves using a high-pressure shredder to obliterate hard drives, making data recovery impossible.
  • NCS Global offers the option for this process to occur either at our facility or on-site, depending on the client’s security needs.

Benefits:

  • Physical destruction results in absolute data security, ensuring no data remnants can be recovered.
  • This versatile method can be used for various types of storage media, including hard drives, SSDs, and optical disks.
  • Appropriate for high-security environments and regulatory compliance requirements.

Best Utilized in:

  • Organizations handling highly sensitive data, such as legal firms, healthcare facilities, and government agencies.
  • Projects involving the disposal of a wide range of storage media, including solid-state drives.
  • Situations where stringent data protection regulations demand secure and irreversible data destruction.
