Cornerstone Technologies utilizes state of the art equipment for their data destruction and eradication services. When an individual or company makes the decision to upgrade their computer network, the older equipment is often restructured to work in another area of the business, sold on the secondary PC market, donated to charity or otherwise destroyed. In any of these scenarios, it is of the utmost importance that the existing data residing on the hard drives of the computers are effectively erased (sanitized). Data sanitization is the process of deliberately, permanently, irreversibly removing or destroying the data stored on a memory device. A device that has been sanitized has no usable residual data. Sanitization processes include using a software utility that completely erases the data, a separate hardware device that connects to the device being sanitized and erases the data, and/or a mechanism that physically destroys the device so its data cannot be recovered.
Several electronic items contain the following hazardous components: lead, mercury, copper, cadmium, chromium, zinc, heavy metals, etc.
Today, more than ever, corporate America understands the need for professional handling of end of life electronics. Cornerstone Technologies provides professional, seamless solutions and technologies that allow our clientele to be assured that their interests are protected and their risks are minimized.
