KIT – Kills Information on Tape

Insurgo Media Services’ KIT (Kills Information on Tape) process is the most efficient and environmentally friendly way to securely remove sensitive data from tape media. KIT leaves no trace, with no chance of recovery. That is why banks, government departments and other organisations that need absolute data security choose Insurgo Media’s KIT process to erase information.

Our tape media specialists developed KIT to deliver guaranteed data erasure while enabling reuse of the tapes – better for your security, the environment and your budget.

KIT is available only through Insurgo Media. Contact us now to find out how we can help your organisation.

Security-conscious organisations around the world trust Insurgo’s KIT for data removal

How the KIT system gives you complete security

KIT works by running a non-wearing magnetic head over the tape. This removes all trace of recoverable data, and leaves the tape reusable as certified tape media. This means that you can be sure that every scrap of data is removed from your used tapes.

There are no data-reading drives involved in the KIT process, so there is no opportunity for any of your sensitive data to leak or escape at any point – from secure collection right through to ultimate destruction.

No trace of data, no chance of recovery.

Independently tested and validated

Our process is verified by the University of South Wales’ internationally recognised research lab. They confirm that KIT removes all data from the entire length of tape media, permanently.

Guaranteed 100% secure – end-to-end

You can be confident that your data is safe throughout the KIT process. We collect your tape media in an ADISA-approved vehicle, with two security-cleared drivers. Each tape is transported directly to our secure facility, for storage under 24/7 security systems before being processed and erased. We give you full visibility and accountability, with tapes tracked through every step of the process.

Or choose on-site KIT, where we use the same verified process to destroy your data while it stays on your premises.

ADISA accredited and environmentally friendly

Insurgo is the only company in the world accredited by ADISA for secure disposal of data on tape that enables tapes to be re-used. So there’s no worry about your tapes turning up in landfill or causing toxic emissions from incineration. Just money back for your company each time we process your tapes.
