Renz Masterbind and Global Data Destruction have signed an exclusive partnership for the sale and support of Global Data Destruction’s range of high security disintegrators.
One of the main security problems facing government and businesses is the secure destruction of large volumes of confidential material especially on computer hard drives and other magnetic media.
Global Data Destruction, an Australian company, have designed a unique solution for the safe, secure destruction of magnetic media including computer hard drives as well as high volumes of confidential paper documents.
Renz Masterbind already offers a large range of shredding machines suitable for paper, CDs, credit cards, diskettes and is an endorsed federal government supplier of high security shredders.
Global Data Destruction’s Managing Director and Chief Engineer, Malcolm Battock, said “I am delighted to announce this new distribution partnership with Renz Masterbind. This alliance provides our unique product range with an experienced and well established distribution and support network across Australia and New Zealand.”
“We are very excited about the addition of these models to our Mastershred product family” said Rod Fowler, Renz Masterbind’s Managing Director.
“We can now offer a complete range of solutions from high security desk-side shredders right through to very high volume disintegration units that can destroy up to 200 PC hard drives per hour” he said.
Renz Masterbind will be offering all three Global Data Destruction models under the Mastershred brand.
Two of the three models are already in use in US government departments and have been approved by NSA in the USA, the authority responsible for security equipment testing for defence and government use.
The third model the Mastershred MXHDD is scheduled for government security testing shortly and is probably the exciting in the range. The 1st installation of the MXDD has been installed at the Department of Defence Canberra.
It is capable of destroying over 200 PC hard drives per hour and converts them into safe 3mm particles automatically loaded into large waste collection sacks.
“This machine solves a major problem for high security PC users” said Malcolm Battock. You can’t just throw away a PC hard drive, because it will still contain files and important data – even though they may have been deleted by the user before the PC was discarded. The only way to be sure no confidential information is left on an old PC hard drive is to disintegrate it into small particles that are impossible to read, he said.”
All models operate in a safe dust-free mode and use vacuum extraction to remove and load waste into sacks for removal.
