– Desktop computers
– Working flat panel monitors
– iPads and tablets
– Cell phones
– Keyboards, mice, and other computer parts
– File servers and networking equipment
– Wiring (Cat5 and Cat6)

T4T offers multiple software data destruction options at minimal cost.
After an exhaustive review of multiple erasure and data destruction wiping software, T4T determined that WipeDrive Enterprise (WD), a solution provided by White Canyon Software, is the most effective solution and meets multiple corporate data destruction needs.
Our high standards require us to be at the forefront of wiping software data destruction and handling, superseding the minimum standard of local Governments, up to the international Common Criteria EAL 2+ Certified level. The EAL 2+ certification is required for use by the US Department of Defense, Department of State, and Homeland Security. According to the NSA, data deleted with WD is “permanently destroyed as to make any type of forensic data recovery impossible.”
Hard drives and other storage mediums received by T4T authorized personnel are stored in a secure (locked) facility under camera until processed.
Call us about your Data Security needs!
