Data Destruction


We have the ability to provide secure data destruction for data drives using WipeDrive Enterprise.

The National Security Agency (NSA) manages the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP), a U.S. Government program originated to meet the security testing needs of both consumers and producers of information technology (IT). Through the NIAP’s Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (CCEVS), approved Common Criteria Testing Laboratories (CCTLs) evaluate Commercial Off-The-Shelf Products.  The CCEVS Validation Body:

Provides technical guidance to CCTLs, validates the results of IT security evaluations for conformance to the International Common Criteria for IT Security Evaluation, and serves as an interface to other nations for the recognition of such evaluations.

WipeDrive is certified via NIAP’s CCEVS Validation Body. Our facility issues certified destruction reports, such as the following report.



Physical Destruction

Physical destruction ensures that your data devices and the information stored on them cannot be accessed. Our portable hard drive crusher plugs into a standard 110-volt outlet and destroys all disk-drive platters and the contained data. We can process hundreds of drives per hour, allowing your on-site security or IT staff to review the process in person. American Recycling then places the crushed drives into a secure container for delivery to a American Recycling processing facility and the final recovery of non-ferrous metals. The customer receives a Certificate of Destruction and a detailed Disposition Report after the asset disposal process is completed.

Benefits of using our service:

•Effective – Our crushing tool is more effective and safer than degaussing, drill presses, or the “hammer” technique.
•Fast Systems – We can process hundreds of 3.5″ hard drives per hour.
•Visible Results – Unlike degaussing, you can visually confirm that our secure data destruction services have been completed.
•Quick Set Up – The self-contained hard drive punch takes just minutes to set up and take down.
•Quality Support – We will assist your support staff and can remove hard disk drives from machines and record asset details of crushed drives.
