Importance of Media Sanitization (Data Erasure)

In today’s world, data is literally everywhere. From desktops, laptops and cell phones, almost everything can be accessed digitally. Sensitive, important and personal information is typically stored throughout computers, hard drives and data centers. It is your job as a professional business to ensure that this confidential information doesn’t fall in the wrong hands. Simply think of the terrible possibilities that could happen if this data ever fell in the wrong hands.

So, what can you do in order to protect your business and customer information? The answer is, dispose of the data right away after it is no longer being used. The first thing you need to know is that when data gets deleted, it may no longer be easily available from the operating system that created it, but the files are not gone for good. Software, operating systems and file mangers often place this information in a holding area that can be accessed through a “trap door”.

This is where the importance of data erasure come into hand. Through either on-site or off-site erasure, in a vendor neutral platform, XTechnology Global can perform data erasure that ensures that the data is gone for good.

Media Sanitization and The Cloud

Are you or any of your clients migrating to the cloud or moving to a new location? Moving a data center can be an arduous task, especially when it comes to the physical move of data center hardware and the security of the data on that hardware. Often times when an organization is moving a data center there is equipment that is going to be redeployed, but there is also equipment that is going to be obsolete and need to be disposed of in a proper manner. It is extremely important and advantageous to the organization to hire a vendor that can handle both aspects of the move, (1) equipment redeployment and (2) equipment disposition. Where can one find a company that offers this type of one-stop-shopping in regards to data center moves and relocation services?
