our Data Security services

Data Erasure
At Echo we utilise Blancco Data Erasure software allowing us unprecedented levels of secure data sanitisation in New Zealand. Blancco is the industry standard in data erasure and mobile device diagnostics software, and allows us to provide our clients with sustainable data sanitisation processes across the widest array of assets.
HDD Degaussing
We utilise harddrive degaussing services to ensure customers’ peace of mind when it comes to data security. This process involves erasing data from hard drives by disrupting magnetic fields using strong magnets - expertly erasing all information on each asset, safeguarding your privacy and compliance.
Onsite Shredding
In some instances, clients require on-site data destruction and shredding of their IT assets and IP equipment. We have a self-sufficient mobile shredding unit, allowing us to destroy your company’s equipment – such as HDDs, phones and laptops – efficiently and securely on-site, and witnessed if desired.
HDD Destruction
When clients would require their data bearing assets to be completely destroyed and turned into commoditised material, we can undertake a range of shredding or destruction processes including shredding via our BLUBOX, shred to size requirements such as NZISM certified.
NZISM Compliant Destruction
We are certified to complete the highest level of physical data destruction in Aotearoa. Our Wellington site is an NZISM Compliant Data Destruction facility, allowing us to destroy data bearing assets to unmatched levels.
