Data Erasure Insights for ITADs

Sometimes, physically destroying IT assets isn’t enough. To ensure complete data sanitization, you need to use software-based overwriting to remove sensitive data from your customers’ IT assets prior to destruction. You’ll guarantee compliance with the most rigorous data privacy and protection standards and receive a Certificate of Erasure with each erasure instance to prove to customers you’ve done so.
