Secure enterprise data erasure services in Singapore
Secure enterprise data erasure services can prevent damage to your business through sensitive information getting into the wrong hands. Sometimes, it’s vital for a business to recover lost data. In other circumstances, it’s equally important to ensure the destruction of digital information.
For example, if you’re upgrading your hardware and selling, giving away, or decommissioning old PCs or servers, you won’t want anyone to access the confidential data you’ve stored there.
Permanent erasure of data may also be necessary if you’re issuing PCs, laptops, desktops, tablets, or phones to new employees – to protect individuals and the company against identity theft or corporate espionage.
Unfortunately, getting rid of data forever can be as tricky as recovering lost data – without the right tools and equipment.

The permanent data erasure solution
Obliterating data isn’t as easy as you might think. Deleting files and formatting storage drives won’t make your data disappear. Deleted data can be retrieved with undelete software, and formatting a drive only gets rid of the data in the address tables.
Without certified data erasure, your business could be running the risk of:
- Reputational harm if customer information is released through a data breach.
- Loss of competitiveness if sensitive, commercial information reaches the public domain.
- Damage to staff morale if their confidential records are accessed by outsiders.
Permanent erasure of data by specialist data erasure services can take different forms:
- Data wiping. This process is also called overwriting because it writes new data on top of the old to obliterate it. It’s like recording over an old VHS video: the new recording destroys the original one.
- Degaussing services. Degaussing uses a magnet to scramble the magnetic field of storage media, which destroys the data.
- Physical destruction. There are numerous methods of physically destroying a hard drive, including shredding with specialised, high-powered equipment, drilling holes in the drive, and hammering the drive.
You may be tempted to undertake physical destruction of a drive yourself, but experts can still retrieve data from physically-damaged drives unless the job has been handled by a professional.
Data erasure specialists will ensure protection against all software-based file recovery methods, meeting the same data erasure standards laid down by the US Defense Department in its DoD 5220.22-M Data Wipe Method.
