Data Destruction Equipment and Data Destruction Services in UAE
With IT upgrades, there will inevitably be some data media left over that you will need to dispose of. These storage media may contain sensitive data such as personal information, organisational data, financial data, or even more sensitive information for government agencies, the military, and banks. All of this information must be irretrievably deleted. Simple deletion is not enough as the data can be easily recovered with data recovery software. There are essentially 3 kinds of processes for Permanent data erasure - degaussing, multi-pass data overwriting and physical destruction. We have all 3 types of equipment to help you erase data from your media safely and permanently

Magnetic Data Wiping devices - Hard drive Degaussers and Tape Degaussers in DubaiDegaussers generate a high-intensity magnetic field that is used to irrevocably erase all data on your magnetic media, such as hard drives or magnetic tapes. The process by which your data is irrevocably erased is called media sanitization, and degaussing is one of the many ways to sanitise your media. What makes degaussers so popular is their ease of use.
Unlike the 7 writes for data sanitization, which take a lot of time, and physical destruction, which requires heavy and noisy hardware, degaussers are fast, silent and efficient. Degaussing works with all kinds of Hard drives . Weather the interface is SATA , SAS or IDE , hard drive can be degaussed. Form factors don't matter ( 2.5"/3.5"). If your hard drive fits the degaussing chamber, it can be degaussed. Driver carriers ( like the Dell/HP Caddies) have to be removed sometime on smaller degaussers who don't have enough space.
However, the disadvantage of a degausser is that you can only degauss magnetic media, i.e. hard discs and tapes. Degaussing has no effect on flash media such as flash drives and SSDs. The only way to clean such media is to either write to it in multiple passes or physically destroy it.
Physical Destruction devices like Hard drive shredders and SSD destroyers in UAEAlthough degaussing is the easiest way for data sanitization , sometimes there are reasons to use a physical destroyer. First - the destroyer offers a physical verification so you can see your HDD/SSD being physically crushed. Second- for SSDs degaussing doesn't work, so Hard drive shredders are the only device that works for SSD and HDD. The most popular hard drive shredders are the hard drive benders and hard drive punchers because they work quietly. There are also hard drive shredders (also called hard drive destroyers and hard drive particulators) that crush the hard drives into small particles. There are 2 types of hard drive destroyers - those that punch holes in the flash drives and shredders that crush SSDs into small pieces.
We deal with all kinds of Data Destructors in UAE including Manual Hard drive Destoyers, Hydraulic hard drive destroyers and hard drive shredders.
