How Data Loss Prevention Works

In today’s digital world, information holds decisive significance. People process vast amounts of sensitive data daily. Various methods protect the privacy and confidentiality of this data. However, people employ these ways when actively using the files.

After while, some of the documents become unneeded. These files may still contain secretive information, so it is essential to erase them safely. Simply deleting it from your hard drive or server is not enough, as the device may still store it somewhere. Hence, you need to approach this case professionally.

Data destruction services play a crucial role in safeguarding sensitive information, meeting regulatory requirements, preventing data breaches, thwarting unauthorized access, reducing environmental impact, and building trust by securely erasing data from devices.

Importance of Data Destruction Service

If you need to completely delete the data from your digital media, then destruction is the safest option. With this method, your information becomes unreadable and irrecoverable. 

Deleting a file yourself is always an option. However, this method does not guarantee a complete erasure of your documents. Sooner or later, anyone will perform data destruction recovery and use them to their advantage. Nowadays, providers of erasure services use various techniques to achieve successful results. 

Methods of Secure Data Erasure on the Device

Logical Destruction

Intentional and unintentional actions can overwrite the data on your device, resulting in a complete loss of information in both cases. Logical destruction is a process of replacing original data with a random set of 0s and 1s. Overwriting must be performed based on the highest security standards so that no data will be left on the storage media. This technique is preferable for users who are planning to continue using a storage device.


Another method for the complete deletion of your data is degaussing. People mainly use this technique on hard drives. Special equipment, degausser, is used to demagnetize the drive's platter, making it impossible to use. Via strong magnetic waves, this tool permanently erases the data. This method has consequences, as utilizing a drive after that is impossible. This technique guarantees efficient results of the erasure.

Physical Destruction

When you don't need to reuse or resell the media, use the physical destruction method to eliminate the data. This kind of data erasure is performed by physically destroying the media and deleting access to files. Professionals should perform this process to ensure all the data is erased based on the destruction norms. However, a physically destroyed device still stores data; someone can restore it from fragments.


Formatting is a data erasure technique suitable only when dealing with a small amount of data. This erasure process can be very time-consuming, so that it will take forever for high-capacity devices. Formatting is also suitable for users who need their device after erasing data from it. This method has another benefit: you can specify the files that need destruction. Specialized formatting will erase only the required documents.

Regardless of which technique you choose on your device, with a reputable company you can start a data sanitization process. It will confirm that there is no unwanted data left on your device. By entrusting your case to specialists, your privacy will stay protected.
