Tier 1 understands that when disposing of IT assets, guaranteed data security is the essential obligation, above all other considerations.
Data is sanitised by using a CESG High Level three level Blancco overwrite on all data bearing assets (Tier 1 is one of only a handful of UK Blancco ‘gold’ partners). As a last resort, when a hard drive must be shredded, we use an ADISA approved physical destruction method. In either case, Tier 1’s secure process is guided by the stipulations of the Security Policy Framework (SPF) and the latest version (December 2014) of IAS 5.
Our secure premises are vetted and approved by MoD to handle government assets and we currently have 27 SC cleared staff for your further peace of mind. CCTV, perimeter fencing and clear segregation of data bearing and non-data bearing assets all contribute to a feeling of safety and security.
We use SC cleared crews in solid-sided, GPS tracked vehicles that adhere to strict security guidelines on all collections. Uniformed and courteous staff will undertake an ADISA audited logistics process that keeps your assets secure from your site to ours.
Tier 1 are able to undertake off site and on site data sanitisation. This includes magnetic hard drives, solid state devices, network equipment, magnetic tapes, data bearing MFDs and mobile or hand held devices. Please contact us for a full list of our data sanitisation capabilities for a wide range of media and devices.
