Due to the extensive amount of data they store, data centers are among the most valuable assets a company owns. Personal, employee and enterprise information is stored on servers and can become susceptible to data leaks if not disposed of properly. IT asset disposition facilities dispose of IT assets beyond the end of their use, and ensure clients that their data is protected.
Data centers are extremely important, making proper equipment disposition crucial to an enterprise. Companies need to know that their private enterprise data is not going to fall into the wrong hands. Data erasure is one way to ensure that no data is leaked even during disposition. HOBI International has three stages of data security starting with an internally-developed data erasure tool, the HOBI Shield®, which completely wipes all data from a device, and ends with device recycling. All devices that cannot be completely wiped of data are shredded to ensure that no information is leaked.
When partnering with an ITAD enterprise for server disposition, it’s important to think about other aspects of data security as well and services they may provide. Data security extends to where and how the data center equipment is stored, as well as how long it is stored. The longer the equipment is stored the more susceptible it becomes to damage or theft. Finding an ITAD provider that implements other safety precautions in addition to data erasure could be the difference between full data protection and a data breach.
Removing equipment from a data center can be a tedious job, especially when managing the security of any stored data. Some ITAD facilities take care of the hard part and offer equipment removal services. HOBI offers comprehensive data center management services, providing clients with peace of mind that their data centers are in capable hands even during disposition.
HOBI offers in-house, cost-effective reverse logistics services for retired and redeployed IT assets, as well as remarketing opportunities for servers, networking gear, storage arrays and power equipment to extend the usable lifecycle and maximize asset value.
