The first step to retiring old hardware is selecting a certified ITAD specialist. This ensures a high return on value, full compliance, and data security. Most importantly, data destruction is a critical responsibility.
Any ITAD company will guarantee the minimal compliance with international data laws and regulations. In-house data wiping takes things a step further for protection of sensitive information.

How is in-house wiping different?

Your chosen ITAD vendor should offer thorough data destruction that meets the highest standards of data security.
Many ITAD specialists take the equipment off-site to their own facility. Companies that use a secure chain of custody to transport the equipment are highly preferable because this ensures safety when equipment is in-transit. As a result, clients can track the route and transportation team throughout the process.
On the other hand, in-house wipes destroy data before the equipment is ever removed. In this case, specialists can install and operate the software remotely. Consequently, this eliminates possible theft of the equipment or physical negligence.

Remote software to reduce uncertainty and protect security

Data destruction specialists can install in-house data wiping software on clients’ computers and hard drives. The wipe takes place on-site. The security that this process offers can’t be matched. Here are some of the benefits:
• It removes the potential for a security breach in-transit and lets clients maintain full control over the process.• There is no question of the equipment’s whereabouts. The client knows who works with the data destruction and that the facility maintains maximum security.• Remote software performs the entire wiping process. Data destruction specialists guide the process as much as needed.• Most importantly, in-house processes ensure full reporting for record keeping and for double-checking.
Once the wipe is complete, ITAD specialists remove equipment from the facility with no risk of data theft.

Less stress, more gain

Thus, with in-house data wiping, the clients gain control. There should never be any question of whether sensitive information is secure. The ability to monitor the process restores certainty and shifts focus to maximizing the return on value.
