When we say it's gone, it's gone.

It’s easy to think that data has been removed from a device, but it’s been shown time and again, that with some deletion methods, data can be retrieved. This means that redeploying assets can be risky and that it’s more difficult to maintain the highest standards of security that are demanded and necessary.

Global Erasure powered by YouWipe

The Global Erasure Team is the world leader in secure data erasure. Global Erasure and Global Mobile allows corporations and government entities to permanently and securely erase data from hard drives, removable media, and mobile devices, providing a cost-effective, secure, and socially responsible way of recycling and retiring computer storage.


YouWipe – Certified Data Erasure is widely used by both public-sector and private industries around the world.

YouWipe has been recognised and successfully certified under rigorous and professional standards, by governments and independent security organizations, such as NATO, the UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), the Common Criteria (EAL +3), the Dutch General Intelligence and Security Service, the Finnish National Cyber Security Centre (TRAFICOM), and ADISA (UK Asset Disposal and Information Security Alliance), among others.

YouWipe Erasure Station

YouWipe proudly introduces our new robust hardware Erasure Station, built for heavy-duty projects and powered by YouWipe’s innovative erasure software.

Our IT redeployment service makes this safe, practical and effective. Equipment marked for redeployment will be data-wiped, tested, refurbished if necessary and stored with full records. When it’s appropriate, the equipment is ready to become, once again, a productive part of your IT estate, avoiding waste and unnecessary expenditure on new equipment.

In some circumstances, as part of their corporate social responsibility programmes, clients are happy to donate their redundant, but still viable equipment to charitable causes. Our staff will be delighted to assist and can ensure that all drives are completely and permanently erased and that a worthy cause is in receipt of fully working and very welcome IT equipment.

IT Recycling

We are passionate about redeploying used IT equipment, but occasionally the only realistic option is to start the recycling process.

In such situations, we are scrupulous in our methods and documentation. All data will be completely erased, and every item will be fully tracked, with any recoverable components preserved for spares or reuse.

Some items of IT equipment can be classed as hazardous waste. Most items fall under the scope of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE). There are considerations for the disposal of batteries and various producer responsibility directives. We ensure compliance with every regulation and provide all the documentation you need to prove your commitment to sustainability and high environmental standards.

Environmental Compliance

Many customers using our software also calculate the total savings of C02 per year contributing to the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) regulations. Our solutions are optimised to serve new European Union Data Act, European Eco Design Directive, sustainability-focused TCFD regulations and future compliance/ legislations.
