Insurgo Media Services’ KIT Gains ADISA Accreditation

By Gavin Griffiths June 15, 2016

Today, we’re incredibly pleased to announce that Insurgo Media Services is officially accredited by ADISA, the Asset Disposal and Information Security Alliance. 

Having developed a first-in-the-world data removal process – which removes all trace of data from any tape, ensuring that it’s never recoverable – ADISA was tasked with testing our claims and independently verifying that our process was entirely effective.

In all tests, Insurgo passed.

ADISA, in partnership with the University of South Wales’ internationally recognised test laboratory, confirmed that Insurgo’s KIT data removal tool was able to remove data to a level which withstands attack using COTS forensic and data recovery software’.

In addition, ADISA confirmed that the KIT process can protect against any ‘attack by a threat adversary utilising standard magnetic force microscopy tools as well as standard commercial forensic/data recovery tools.’


In their report, ADISA describes the test results as confirmation that Insurgo’s data-removal process is suitable for ‘organisations looking to sanitise their media and protect against forensic recovery.’

This accreditation is a massive mark of assurance for Insurgo clients new and old, who rely on us to provide them with a failsafe solution to destroying their sensitive data. Organisations including the Met Office, Cardiff University and Thales entrust us with their data, and will now benefit from the added peace-of-mind that comes with this globally-recognised verification.

Speaking of the announcement, MD Gavin Griffiths said “This is a landmark moment for Insurgo Media, and is the result of years of research, innovation and hard-work.

“Until now, our industry has been reliant of methods such as shredding and degaussing, both of which have negatives on both the environment and company’s bottom lines, and yet don’t fully ensure that all data is removed beyond recovery.

“Our new KIT solution is good for the environment, good for security and good for business. And now it’s accredited at the highest level.”
