Data centers are one of the most important pieces of IT hardware a business may own, as well as one of the most expensive. As keepers of large amounts of private company and employee information, data centers are often targeted by hackers and can be vulnerable if not properly secured. Because they store sensitive information, decommissioning data centers can be stressful. There’s a lot of data to protect and many things that could go amiss. For this reason, it is best to hire professionals to safely decommission and transport enterprise data centers.
IT asset disposition facilities like HOBI offer data center installations, transitions and asset decommissioning. With more than 30 years of experience in the industry, HOBI International, Inc. provides all of the above services, as well as data security and erasure.
When data centers are retired, it is imperative that all of the data stored is protected from data breaches. The best way to achieve this is through data erasure. Proper data sanitization is crucial and prevents data leaks throughout the disposition process.
HOBI uses three stages of data security to ensure client peace of mind, including a full data wipe using an internally-developed data erasure tool, the HOBI Shield®, which removes all data from a device. To provide a higher degree of data security, HOBI also offers a full overwrite, or DOD-compliant wipe on data storage devices upon client request. Any devices containing data that cannot be sanitized are destroyed via shredding technology to ensure no data is leaked, and then recycled.
Decommissioning data centers doesn’t have to be a headache. Professionals in the industry offer comprehensive data center solutions that minimize downtime and maximize return on assets. Hiring an ITAD provider like HOBI ensures the job gets done efficiently and in a timely manner.
