Several commercial operators in New Zealand offer an ‘offsite’ destruction service that requires sensitive materials to be shipped to an off-site facility for processing.
The offsite service model is based on trust and introduces a number of security issues related to chain-of-custody, secure transport, and off-site handling. If the destruction facility is located in a different city it becomes difficult - if not impossible - for an organisation to supervise and verify the destruction process.
TechShred's onsite data destruction service was specifically designed to address these concerns. The TechShred system is completely self-contained and operates at your premises. Your staff members can accompany the materials to the point of destruction and directly supervise the destruction process.
