Free Home PC Security software:

JUNE 1, 2012ADMINCOMPUTER SECURITY, DATA PROTECTION, INFORMATION SECURITY0 Although our business is data destruction and the destruction of computer hard drives and CDs, this is security required at the end of a computer’s life, but what about securing your PC during its useful working life?

We all know that anti-virus programmes are important (search for ‘AVG Free’ if you need a free one) but just as important is to make sure that all the programmes you have running on your PC are up to date and supported by their developer.

New Sky Undelete Feature – how does it work?

INFORMATION SECURITY, IT ASSET DISPOSAL, IT DISPOSAL0

You’ve probably seen the recent TV and billboard adverts with Jonathan Ross promoting the new Sky+HD Undelete feature, but how does it work?

This is a really clever new feature of the Sky+ boxes and it might seem like some fancy new technology but in reality it is not – that’s just the way computer hard disk drives work.

Every Sky+ box contains a hard drive and that’s what records your favourite TV programs – just like the data on a computer. And just like a computer, pressing the delete button on your Sky box does not actually delete the recorded program – it just removes the index to that program and tells the box that there is now free space on the hard drive.

This is exactly the same as deleting a file from your computer – it is not actually removed from the hard disk. Granted, it is not as simple to retrieve as using Sky’s ‘undelete’ button but it is fairly simple if you know how.

That’s why it is important to properly securely erase the data on computer hard drives when they are disposed of, and that’s where we can help. Simply contact us now to find out more.

Simple data destruction solutions, simple pricing JUNE 1, 2012ADMINCOMPUTER RECYCLING, COMPUTER SECURITY, DATA DESTRUCTION0 We aim to make the whole process of disposing of redundant IT equipment and removing computers for recycling as simple and efficient as possible, with the minimum disruption to the customer. When the time comes to dispose of old computers you want the process to be quick and efficient. We will collect redundant computers, WEEE and IT equipment and issue a Waste Transfer Note right there and then.

The old computers are then taken to our secure premises where the hard drives are removed and destroyed, with Certificates of Destruction emailed to customers as soon as the hard disks are processed. This data destruction can of course take place on customer sites to meet individual security policies and we operate a simple per-unit pricing – customers are simply charged for each hard drive destroyed.

One of our key environmental aspirations is to maximise the amount of redundant equipment that is reused, and in many cases we can use the value of equipment to offset costs resulting in free recycling collections for customers, offering very cost-effective IT disposal: great for customers and great for the environment.
