Erasure as a Service (EaaS)

Certified Data Erasure Service

Certus takes erasure to the next level by offering onsite and remote Erasure as a Service (EAAS) through our global network of authorized partners. EAAS involves permanently wiping all data on devices before they leave a facility or location to be recycled, resold, or reused.

As part of this process a Certified Data Erasure Certificate is provided, this allows a secure handoff whenever a data bearing asset leaves a controlled environment or facility. This secure report shows the asset erasure is certified compliant with NIST 800.88r1, GDPR Article 17, SOX, HIPAA, NATO and other international standards.

This process is only performed by a Certus Certified Engineer on assets approved to be erased. This process can be completely automated or approved on a case by case basis to give the most efficient or the most controlled process, depending on your use case.
