In today's fast changing technological world, more and more electronic devices are being put away in favor of new devices. Due to the increasing number of old electronic devices needing to be handled properly, ITAD and data destruction companies were created. If you’re wondering, ‘what does ITAD stand for’ read on to find out.
ITAD stands for IT Asset Disposition. This refers to the business that has been created around properly disposing of obsolete or unwanted equipment in an ecologically responsible and safe manner. E-waste, or electronic waste, is part of the equipment that is destroyed within IT asset disposition. IT assets can include various devices such as phones, old computers, printers, memory device sticks and more.
Data construction companies help answer the question of what to do with IT assets once their life cycle is over. Additionally, ITAD will help you consider the best practices for getting rid of electronic devices. Part of this include proper data security to ensure that old devices will not have the information stored on them leak out as well as recycling e-waste in an ethical and environmentally responsible way. Data destruction is the only way to ensure that information stored on devices is 100% irrecoverable as the the actual device is physically destroyed and essentially pulverized, ensuring all data is kept secure.
