Collection: Optical Media Destruction
Deleting information from optical media is not enough to keep the data secure
Media shredders for effective DVD destruction
Information can be retrieved from optical media, even if it has been deleted from the device. This means that any information saved on media is at risk. Destroying optical media is the most effective way to prevent sensitive information from being stolen or used against you.
An optical media shredder is designed to break apart the media itself. Capable of delivering Level 3/P-4 and Level 6/P-7 high-security shredding, these shredders are the best method to destroy media, and prevent data from being retrieved. By breaking apart the media, it becomes more challenging for hackers to access information.
Security is important to businesses, which is where high-security optical media destruction comes in. Many of the shredders listed in this section reduce optical media to a shred size of <1.5mm. Often able to shred both optical media and paper, they have dedicated feeds to effectively destroy data, with an automatic start/stop mode to save you valuable time.
