One of the biggest limiting factors for document shredders is speed, especially for high security shredders which meet or exceed the standards of international security agencies. At best, it’s a minor inconvenience to have to feed one sheet of paper at a time. At worst, when the enemy is at the gates and there’s no time to waste, low shredder throughput can be a security crisis in the making.
The engineers at intimus have paid keen attention to the feedback provided by our many government and corporate clients over the years. Our current line of document shredding solutions is the direct result of this collaboration, including the 175 CC6 Security Shredder, the fastest and highest volume Security Level 6/P-7 shredder on the NSA EPL.
At intimus, we don’t believe that you have to compromise security for the sake of speed. That is why our shredders have been the first choice for NSA, DOD, DOS, and other security and intelligence agencies around the world.
Data destruction solutions that rely upon the physical destruction of hard drives and data tapes provide a level of security that is more than adequate for most applications. However, some agencies and organizations require that the actual information stored magnetically on the hard disk platters or data tape be erased or otherwise destroyed at the microscopic level, prior to disposing of or physically destroying the drive.
In order to completely erase data stored on magnetic media, it is necessary to expose the media to powerful magnetic fields, while also ensuring the safety of nearby persons.
This is why intimus has developed a full line of simple and easy-to-use degausser systems which can completely sanitize a drive in seconds, making it impossible for would-be data thieves to retrieve data. For organizations desiring or requiring careful documentation of HDD erasure and disposal, our Auditor-Pro systems offer an all-in-one HDD erasure and verification solution.
No matter how strict your data erasure guidelines are, our HDD degaussing and erasing products will meet or exceed your needs.
In today’s world, corporations and government agencies no longer just keep backlogs of paper-based documentation. They also accumulate redundant copies of sensitive digital data stored on aging hard drives and physical media that are no longer useful, but which cannot be simply thrown away. In many cases, agency standards and corporate guidelines require that at the very least, hard disk drives be physically broken and mangled before they can be shipped offsite.
This is why intimus has developed a full line of physical media destroyers that cater to the needs of today’s organizations. Whether you have a team of well-trained technicians tasked with disposing of your media, or your budget constrains you to using part-time or minimally trained employees, we have the physical media destruction solution for you. Our high-powered shredders, crushers, and granulators can quickly and securely break, mangle, and destroy hard drives, data tapes, CD-ROMs, phones, flash memory, thumb drives, floppy diskettes, SSHD controller boards, credit cards, and much more.
Physical media is often stored in a manner that makes disposal time-consuming. Loose paper documents, folders, and binders are often interspersed with CDs, DVDs, floppy disks, plastic identification cards, and more. Sorting and separating physical media for disposal wastes valuable man-hours, and heightens the risk of information leakage or loss due to the increased number of low-level personnel often involved in such efforts.
The intimus line of industrial physical media disintegrators is designed to streamline the data destruction process. Multiple types of media can be run through a disintegrator in a single pass, with no need for sorting. Additionally, shred size—and thus security level—can easily be adjusted by simply using a larger or smaller mesh screen, ranging between DIN levels 3 through 7. The smaller the screen, the longer the media is processed by the disintegrator before reaching the targeted mesh size, at which point it passes through the mesh for capture and disposal. This allows you to reduce the size of your data disposal team to only the personnel absolutely necessary to transport documents and other media, operate the disintegrator, and dispose of the shreds, saving you time and money.
The disposal of cardboard boxes and other corrugated cardboard packaging materials has long been very inexpensive, due to the many Chinese paper mills eager to import and resell such materials to recyclers and manufacturers. But with China announcing a ban on the import of such waste products in 2018, the cost of packaging disposal will quickly rise. Thankfully, the Intimus PacMaster line of cardboard packaging shredders offers organizations with large-scale packaging disposal needs a ready solution to this crisis.
The intimus PacMaster packaging recycler converts cardboard products into ready-to-use padding and packaging filler. Rather than having to purchase expensive commercial packing products, you can convert your cardboard packaging waste on-site into sturdy protective packing filler that can immediately be put to use. Eliminate your cardboard disposal costs and your packing material purchases with the intimus PacMaster cardboard recycler.
Very large corporations and organizations often contract with shred truck companies to shred and dispose of their documents and other easily shredded media. However, the shred sizes produced by shred trucks are often very large and easily reconstructed, putting sensitive data at risk. In addition, the cost of shred trucks can be exorbitant, sometimes in the tens of thousands of dollars per month.
The intimus VZ and VZM lines of large capacity industrial shredders give organizations the opportunity to significantly reduce their shred costs by eliminating the need to contract with third-party shredding services. Multiple forms of media can be processed at once, and the VZ Series shredder can be equipped with a ferrous magnetic separator, allowing for the shredding of entire ring folders without having to remove metal elements beforehand.
Documents processed by VZ and VZM shredders are easily recycled, which means that shredding costs can not only be reduced, but in some cases transformed into sources of profit. Recently, a major American metropolitan library purchased an intimus VZ industrial shredder, and soon saw their $30,000 per month document disposal costs turned into a $5,000 per month profit.
At intimus, we believe that security doesn’t have to come at a significant financial cost. The VZ and VZM large capacity shredders allow you to ensure the security of your data, while also saving you money or even creating a new revenue stream for your business or organization.
