What is Tape Destruction?

Tape Destruction is the process of destroying a business's data tapes and legacy cartridges, to the point where the data on them is completely irretrievable. For many businesses who use different data tape forms, including CCTV and security tapes, videotapes, backup tapes, digital linear tapes (DLTs) and linear tape-open magnetic tapes (LTOs), data tape destruction is a necessity to help prevent the likes of data theft, fraud and compliance issues.

As the name suggests, tape destruction is carried out through mechanised destroying of the data tapes in question. At ICT Reverse, we use highly powerful EV30E backup tape machines to grind your data tapes into millions of pieces. This irreversible process means your tapes and the key data stored on them are completely unrecoverable for the likes of thieves, competitors and unauthorised personnel.

If your business is holding onto old data tapes and doesn’t have a system for efficient and secure disposal in place, we’d highly recommend our backup tape destruction services. If you’d like to know more about how we can help with secure data tape disposal, contact us today.
