IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) is an essential component of the IT equipment life-cycle.
ITAD is the practice of how and where end-of-life IT equipment is disposed of -- including complete documentation of the process it has gone through.
Evolving technology is resulting in rapidly shrinking equipment refresh cycles. Methods for "retiring" IT equipment is becoming more complex due to security and regulatory issues. An organization without a rigorous ITAD program risks considerable harm to its operations.
Data present on end-of-life equipment must be protected in a way that it is secure and maintains regulatory compliance -- today,, it is best left to professionals. Simply sending hardware to a shredder is no longer an acceptable approach.
PatriotITAD professionally provides ITAD services -- globally.
