Kroll Ontrack’s data recovery customers can now ensure that their unwanted devices are securely erased and disposed of by Kroll Ontrack’s technical experts following completion of their data recovery.

Launched at start of the New Year, Kroll Ontrack’s free service includes a data deletion and degaussing process to ensure no sensitive personal or corporate data remains on a drive. It also provides the safe disposal of unwanted equipment once data has been retrieved.

Previously, all hardware was returned to customers. But as recycling methods become more advanced, Kroll Ontrack is now able to reduce the amount of electronic equipment waste contributed to landfills across the country, while protecting customer sensitive and private information at the same time.

“With many of our recoveries, once data has been retrieved and restored, the device becomes defunct – either through damage, or through replacement. We are pleased to offer our customers the added-value of a secure, simple and environmentally sound way to recycle old devices, rather than leave them to clutter up offices and landfills across the country,” said Phil Bridge, Managing Director, Kroll Ontrack.
