Below is a recap of this week’s blog posts including retiring software licenses with vITAD, mobile security management via data security apps, a partnership that created a recycled titanium supply chain, and the environmentally-conscious smartphone hitting shelves in the U.S.
There are many steps to retiring IT assets, which are necessary to ensure a smooth, secure transition. Data security is arguably the most important step, making sure no data leaks are possible even after disposition. Data erasure consists of a complete wipe of all data from a device before data erasure is license retirement.
Mobile has become the global leader in convenient technology. Cell phones are the primary source of communication, followed by other mobile devices like laptops, smartwatches, and tablets, which means mobile lifecycle management is becoming increasingly important.
Sustainability goals are becoming more common in the business world as companies become more environmentally conscious and try to reduce their carbon footprint. Two companies in the waste and recycling industry have partnered to create a low-carbon 100 percent recycled titanium supply chain that will close the loop chain by recycling more titanium metal.
Tech giants around the world are focusing more on sustainability as they roll out new products. From changes in packaging to repair methods, many tech companies are making more of an effort to be environmentally aware. Several companies, including Apple, have developed self-repair kits to help consumers repair their devices at home. Now, iPhones may have a new competitor that is now available in the U.S.
