About Insurgo Media

About Us

Priding ourselves as The Tape Media Experts, Insurgo Media Services are dedicated to providing a total tape media management solution for organisations across the globe. 

Established in 2009, the Insurgo team has over 150+ years combined experience in the tape manufacturing and data storage industry, with many of our tape experts involved in the early manufacturing of tape and previously part of the global organisations who specialised in developing enterprise tapes for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). 

With a fast and global reach, Insurgo Media has become the trusted outlet for tape media supply, tape maintenance, secure data destruction and tape media disposal for organisations worldwide.

Our extensive research and development within the industry has enabled us to develop innovative, patent-pending, technologies that are dedicated to ensuring the secure disposal of sensitive data, allowing us to mitigate risks for our customers, who may otherwise rely on using traditional tape disposal methods.

Our bespoke solution (KIT- Kills all Information on Tape) is the ONLY data disposal method on the market that can guarantee 100% of all readable data will be removed from tape, without damaging it, allowing the tape to be reused as new.

Here at Insurgo security is absolutely paramount and the complete confidence of our customers is at the core of our entire operation. Driven by innovation, we continuously invest in research, development, training and resources to ensure our products, services and people are the very best in the industry.

We Take Security Very Seriously Here

As if our facility wasn’t secure enough, (even 007 would seriously struggle to gain entrance) we have some pretty impressive additions within our facility to ensure our customer’s data is completely secure whilst under our care.

Here’s a little demonstration of the fastest fogging security system on the market, taking just 0.1 to react to an intruder, it blasts 28 cubic meters of fog per second, filing an entire room at an impeccable speed, leaving very little in the way of visibility.

As soon as the Fog Bandit initalises the authorities are called, any intruder to the premises will be certainly stopped in their fog-filled tracks, check this out…

Our values are the fundamental principles on which our entire operation is based.
