Why destroy tapes professionally?

In most organisations, back-up tapes contain confidential information that can pose a security risk if not properly destroyed. In addition, there are some legal obligations and environmental considerations to take into account. We offer mechanical destruction of all your back-up tapes.

Mechanical data destruction of Tapes

Tapes can be destroyed mechanically in two ways:
- Shredding
- Degaussing


A shredder destroys the tape by shredding it into thousands of pieces. Retrieving data is made impossible this way. When degaussing, the tape is exposed to a strong magnetic field which literally destroys the tape and the data.


The remaining fractions are recycled after this process. This way we assure you of a safe, reliable and environmentally friendly processing.


If you would like more information about the destruction of tapes, please do not hesitate to contact us.
