Why choose us?
Many other companies claim to provide data destruction services in the UK, but a worrying number of these lack the skills and technology to process these services in house. Instead, the job will be sub contracted to a capable third party, leaving your sensitive information at risk as your storage device is transferred from one place to another.
Here at Virogreen, we undertake all data destruction ourselves, and invest in the latest tools and technology to ensure your data is fully deleted, keeping information about your business and customers safe. Our machinery ensures compliance with all relevant legislation, and ensures secure data erasure every time. We guarantee complete data destruction by:
- Building in safeguards: Our machines use in built safety mechanisms to check on the field strength and stored power at every stage of the erasure cycle.
- Verifying erasure: We regularly work with hard drive manufacturers, information recovery companies and forensic laboratories to verify that our data destruction is effective and complete. All tests to date have independently confirmed that no data is recoverable from any device we have worked on.
