CTRL+V Results

CTRL+V enabled our client to meet their strict data security and privacy requirements by maintaining compliance, by providing certified on-site hard drive shredding at the client’s data center. CTRL+V’s certified technicians removed all hard drives from their respective systems and scanned each serial number.

Once all the hard drive serial numbers had been recorded, CTRL+V’s data destruction engineers loaded the hard drives into secure storage bins. The hard drives were then transported to the data center loading dock, loaded onto a hard drive shredding truck, and destroyed according to D.O.D. and NIST guidelines. A high-volume shredder was used which enabled CTRL+V to destroy all 1,000 hard drives in half a day.

Upon completion of the destruction, CTRL+V supplied our client with a Certificate of Destruction detailing the serial number of each destroyed hard drive and ensured all compliance requirements were maintained.
