Xperien launches first onsite, offsite data tape and hard drive shredder truck in Africa
Xperien has launched the first mobile hard drive shredder plant in Africa. It is a fully equipped PoPI compliant truck that provides on-site degaussing and destruction facilities.
The company recognised the demand for versatile data destruction and has introduced a new business model, to use shredding trucks for mobile hard drive destruction. The truck offers mobile data destruction services that include the physical shredding of 300 hard drives, 500 data tapes, USB sticks and up to 400 mobile phones per hour. The mobile facility also offers the digital shredding of hard drives, solid state drives and data tapes and also the degaussing of HDD and tapes.
Xperien senior business development manager Bridgette Vermaak says data destruction requirements are constantly evolving and service providers need to adapt by investing in versatile equipment. The main advantage this truck brings to data security is that it eliminates the need to provide a chain of custody for the client’s data because the truck comes to the client’s premises.
When a client chooses Xperien’s on-site data destruction, all of the hard drive shredding is performed in the new, independently-powered shred truck at their business’ premises. The mobile shredding trucks are the answer to portability and efficiency in data destruction.
