We use the latest industry standard methods of data destruction which are tried and tested.

All operatives carrying out destruction are extensively trained and all data carrying assets are clearly segregated. Finally all data sanitized items are audited on a weekly basis to ensure compliance.

How can you ensure every single data bearing device is sanitized?

Revive IT have amassed comprehensive experience and knowledge and additionally we have many valuable members of staff who are devoted to nothing else but ensuring compliance and progression. Our leading IT engineers are continually reviewing hardware training and evaluating how all levels of IT hardware retain data; this information is delegated down to all levels within our organisation. Every single item, no matter how small or big, is analysed for data retention capabilities when being processed through our system. All items whether they contain data or not are checked for labels / references and then all data retaining items are sanitized or physically destroyed.

How is Revive IT able to maintain quality and data security by providing cost neutral services?

Revive IT have a zero waste policy which ensures absolutely everything we collect is ether reused or recycled. After the data sanitization process has been completed, all hardware that can be reused is refurbished & electrical safety tested and all faulty / obsolete hardware is broken down for materials recycling. All destroyed data bearing media is also recycled as materials.
