Data storage has evolved across generations from filing cabinets to today’s preferred method – data centers. This means sensitive business, employee, and client data is susceptible to cyberattacks and data breaches, which makes proper IT asset management and disposition critical for data security.
As one of the most expensive assets an enterprise can own, data centers are one of the most valuable facets of enterprise IT operations. Each data center contains extensive amounts of sensitive information that can be vulnerable to data theft if not properly managed.
Because data centers are like any other piece of IT hardware, they need to be updated regularly to ensure they continue to function properly. Data security should be a number one priority for any enterprise, and center decommissioning can put the equipment in a vulnerable state if not done correctly. IT asset disposition is typically an afterthought, but many are unaware that data remains on devices until they are properly sanitized.
Imagine the information stored in data centers was left on the street or in warehouse storage facilities for anyone to take. Improper decommissioning and IT asset disposition make enterprise data just as vulnerable to data theft and, therefore, should be disposed of more securely. IT asset management and disposition facilities like HOBI provide top-tier data center solutions that minimize downtime and maximize return on assets.
