Data Destruction

As you know, many serious liabilities are associated with your private company and client data. Therefore, we maintain strict adherence to the mandates set forth by the NIST, U.S. Department of Defense and other agencies concerning the destruction of embedded.
Data Eradication is the preferred choice of data destruction, as it enables re-deployment and resale. However, the technical reality is that today’s market standard (U.S. Dept of Defense 5220.22-M) is a software overwrite protocol developed over 20 years ago and’s ill-equipped to eradicate data from traditional spinning-disk technology of size (500GB+) and simply unable to certifiably eradicate data from solid state technology. To solve for this issue, we have expanded our suite to include a firmware-based protocol that can be up to 8x faster for select spinning disks (250GB+) and has “verifiably” eradicated select solid state technologies. And as compliance in several verticals prohibits transport of resident data, we provide this eradication service onsite. Our ‘Secure Erase’ protocol is performed inside data centers through the backplane of enterprise storage arrays and can eradicate over 700 HDDs simultaneously and is applicable to all types of HDDs including many Solid State technologies.

On Premise Shredding

Storage Media Shredding – Given the risk profile of select organizations, our suite also includes physical storage media destruction services. We understand that select organizations cannot physically release assets with any resident data, thus we offer these services onsite as well. Here, our service includes trucks with cameras and viewing booths for client witness of all destruction on your premises.

Secure Chain of Custody

With logistics costs rising and the value of retired assets falling, it’s critical that the reverse supply chain be micro-managed. Here, we provide packing instructions from single smartphone kits to pallet loaded trailers. It’s important to protect the value of each asset in the most cost-effective manner

Once packed, we coordinate shipment to the closest regional facility where each asset undergoes a comprehensive audit, data eradication, warehouse staging, then is resold or recycled. And Spruce IT provides detailed reporting throughout the process.

REPORTING

Audit

Each asset received into our facility network undergoes a value-based Audit based upon it’s type, age, and condition, whereby we destroy data through eradication of valued HDDs and shred the balance of HDDs. Each asset is tested and we capture the serial number, model, configuration and condition of each asset.

Certificate of Data Destruction

All storage media assets are eradicated or physically destroyed and we provide a ‘Certificate of Data Destruction’ depicting the Serial Number, Model, Destruction Method, Technician Name and Destruction Date

Certificate of Recycling

When older equipment reaches a state where it no longer has any useful life in part or whole form, it must be recycled responsibly, and Spruce IT ensures that it is done so in strict compliance with our “zero landfill/zero export” policy. We provide a ‘Certificate of Recycling’ depicting serial number, model, weight and recycle date

Zero Landfill / Zero Export Policy

Spruce IT is committed to the environment and is e-Steward Enterprise as well. Our commitment ensures that all downstream processing of recycled material complies with a “zero landfill & zero export” protocol
