IT Asset Disposition Service

Secure removal and disposition of your IT Assets.

IT Asset Disposition Service

Managing and disposing of IT assets are critical components for corporate information security and environmental sustainability strategies. As organizations upgrade their technology infrastructure, the proper handling of end-of-life IT assets, known as IT Asset Disposition (ITAD), is paramount.

What is Secure IT Asset Disposition? Typically, secure IT Asset Dispostion (ITAD) is disposing of IT assets in compliance with environmental and data protection laws.  Risk mitigation and  reducing the company’s liability exposure is a key component.  Organizations should focus on obtaining  detailed documentation, certified data destruction and a secure chain of custody.

E-Waste Security is an IT Asset Disposition company focused on securely decommissioning IT Assets to eliminate the risk of a data breach and negative environmental impacts.

IT Asset Decommissioning

ITAD stands for “Information Technology Asset Disposal.”  It refers to disposing of or recycling old or obsolete information technology assets, such as computers, servers, networking equipment, and other electronic devices.  

We can properly dispose of these IT assets in an environmentally responsible way and comply with relevant regulations.  This can involve decommissioning the assets, shredding hard drives, and recycling.  ITAD is an essential aspect of data security, as it helps to ensure that sensitive data is not left behind on old or discarded devices.

E-Waste Security can help manage and execute your ITAD process by decommissioning, un-racking, and disposing of computer equipment. Our ITAD programs ensure organizations use their time most efficiently, getting the new IT equipment up and running as soon as possible.  Most importantly, as a NAID Certified data destruction company, we offer on-site hard drive shredding so you can witness and verify the process.

Most organizations have data center technicians and IT Managers.  However, their time is limited and expensive.  Organizations would instead use internal employees to set up the new equipment.  Our ITAD service reduces decommissioning costs and time so IT Managers spend their time more productively.

We will remove servers, routers, and switches from your cage and inventory equipment using your asset tag.  Once removed, we will palletize and load onto our truck for shipment.

On-Prem Data Center

Companies are migrating to the cloud.  We can decommission your on-prem data center and recycle the IT Assets while you deal with more critical issues.

If you have already shut down the legacy equipment and it’s no longer in use, the equipment has become a liability.  An audit will discover the equipment is still in your system, and the auditor will need to go through the same time-consuming processes as if the equipment was still in use.

Office Storage Unit

Use our ITAD Recycling services to clean out your office storage units.  Most of the time, this equipment is stored for many years and never used again.

This particular computer storage unit was noticed during a SOC audit.  The chain of custody came into question due to the hard drives.

Once we remove and recycle the old IT equipment, the client can terminate the lease and save over $1,000 monthly on rent.
