Secure Data Destruction
Barely a day goes by without the media reporting on data recovered from supposedly ‘recycled’ or erased hard drives. Ensuring that data is completely erased from a computer’s hard drive is a paramount concern when disposing of computer equipment.
That’s why our services include on-site data destruction, with a specialist piece of equipment known as a ‘degausser’, which exceeds government CESG standards. The process is so powerful that it destroys the working disk and motor. The degausser will also destroy data from server drives, hard drives, laptop drives and will also wipe the data from many other types of media including back up tapes. This is done by the degausser which after completion will make any hard drive impossible to re use.
The use of a Datagauss has the facilities of onboard asset and tracking of each drive which can be printed out on site. Watch how it is done! The advantage of this service is your data is erased ON SITE. This will exceed most companies liability in safe destruction of important information such as credit card information, addresses and bank details. All waste is then removed by us and then certified on site of the safe destruction. Coast2coast Computers use CESG approved equipment and have accreditation with BS EN 15713:2009 Secure Destruction of Confidential Material.
We can also offer a data wiping service. Due to the precise nature of data erasing, the process takes time. In non-computer jargon, the aim is to rewrite the data to make it physically impossible to retrieve any information that was previously stored on the disk. You may have already formatted your computer. Perhaps you went the extra mile and verified that certain files were deleted. These files, however, leave physical imprints or shadows on your hard disk, and skilled computer hackers can access your confidential information—even after it has been “deleted”.
Specialist software removes all impressions that would compromise your information, all with absolutely no damage to your hard drive. A Permanent hard drive eraser protects your information by ensuring that it’s is gone.
The only data erasing method used by us complies by the US DEPARTMENT OF DEFENCE 5220.22-M DISK SANITISING STANDARD. The hard drive data can be overwritten up to 12 times with different characters making the data impossible to retrieve.
We are happy to demonstrate our data erasing service at our customers’ site if required. Any defective drive that is unable to be wiped, will be subject to be treated with a degausser.
Safe computer disposal
When it comes toﾠ computer disposals, Coast2Coast Computers are happy to accommodate the individual needs of each and every client.
If you don’t currently have an inventory of your stock for disposal, Coast2Coast Computers will visit and inspect the disposal stock for you. If there is likely to be any disposal costs involved, these will be discussed at this point.
Once we agree on the particular computer disposal service they wish to use and accepted our terms, the finer detail of residual values can be discussed.
We will then jointly agree a mutually acceptable date for collection of the client’s stock for disposal. Normally this involves no more than two members of staff, to reduce any possibility of disturbance in the clients’ normal day-to-day running of their business.
If stock and time requires more than two people, agreement and notification is made before collection date. From the time the stock is removed from site, it becomes our responsibility. The computer disposals stock is removed to safe storage in Littlehampton. The stock is evaluated for its condition, both mechanical and physical, and all trace of origin including tags and ID are removed. A report is compiled to include each units condition with its own identification, make and serial no. A copy of this report is available to the client after each stock evaluation. Once this is done theﾠ data-erasingﾠ process takes place.

What our customers say!
I have known Coast2coast Computers and the owner Ian Milton for nearly 10 years.
In that time Ian and his business has assisted me and the organisations I manage with the safe IT disposal/recycling and onsite destruction of confidential data. His business has supported us covering numerous sites over a wide geographical area in Sussex from Chichester West Sussex to Rye in East Sussex.
Ian is totally trustworthy, reliable, professional and always happy to go the extra mile to help. I would not hesitate to recommend him and Coast2coast Computers for all aspects of IT disposals and data destruction. (Tony from Lewes)
