Erasure Solutions for ITAD and Recyclers


ITAD and recyclers are taking responsibility for decommissioning and processing IT equipment at the end of its life. They either collect and de-install the hardware themselves, or they subcontract this work out.

For IT equipment that is still fit for use and is going to be sold, the final customer needs to be sure the data has been erased and they need proof of this via a Data Erasure Certificate. The biggest issue is how to safely erase all of the confidential, sensitive data before the IT hardware leaves the working environment, without having too many people involved (as this increases cost and risk).
