Maintain Compliance and Protect Your Reputation

What matters most?

Hundreds of companies partner with DataSavers for one key reason – Trust! With nearly a quarter century of experience in Records and Information Management, DataSavers’ processes and services are built upon an expansive base of industry knowledge and expertise. When DataSavers introduced a new in-house destruction service in 2010, we put all of our industry knowledge and expertise to work to evaluate all options and implement the best possible solution for document destruction.

Process matters

Let’s face it – most destruction companies offer a sound method to destroy documents most of the time. What separates DataSavers from the pack? Process! Process leads to consistency, and consistency leads to peace of mind. Not only are our destruction processes certified by NAID (National Association of Information Destruction) and ISO 9001:2008 (International Organization for Standardization) for both paper and electronic materials, but we also exceed several requirements for certification and incorporate common sense measures to ensure the best possible protection for your organization. DataSavers’ will not destroy your documents securely most of the time, we will do it consistently and securely EVERY TIME!

DataSavers’ offers destruction services for paper and electronic materials onsite in our NARA (National Archives and Records Administrators) approved facility with 24 hour security and video surveillance. Using the most stringent in-house procedures we ensure that all information is properly destroyed in a 100% regulatory compliant manner.

Green Initiative

Feel good knowing your records are recycled

DataSavers’ recycles all paper shredding by-products domestically, as well as plastics and metals from our data destruction services. We always employ environmentally-friendly disposal practices when at all possible, so you can feel good about contributing to a healthier, greener planet.

Mobile Shred vs. Plant Based Destruction

DataSavers’ research and experience ultimately led to implementation of an in-house, plant based destruction operation versus a mobile shred truck operation. Below are some of the reasons we feel DataSavers remains the best choice for secure destruction of materials.

Triple Certification ‘scrutiny and meet or succeed’ (NAID, ISO 9001:2008, NARA)
