What is Data Erasure?

XTechnology Global is a leading Media Sanitization company providing data erasure services to clients with large storage media footprints. With 35 programs to choose from on a non destructive software wipe, you will be sure that all of the data on the devices is cleared to NIST 800-88 and or DOD 5022.m-22. This is also known as (data clearing or data wiping). The process of data erasure is done to completely destroy all data that sits on any hard drive no matter if it is a standard hard drive or solid state.

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? Call XTechnology Global, a data center solutions company, located in Danvers, Massachusetts to learn how we can help: 978-539-8310.
