A critical component to operating a safe and secure business is understanding how to properly dispose of old computers and hardware at the end of the assets’ lifecycle. Failing to do so can result in devastating consequences, given the wealth of sensitive information often contained within the hardware, whether it is proprietary information, financial data, customer information or information related to company litigation.
When choosing a partner for enterprise-level IT support, it is imperative to understand the scope of services and the extent to which your provider will safely and efficiently offload legacy IT equipment and hardware.
Upon assets’ End of Life (EOL), Digital Fix Consulting takes care to remove the legacy assets from inventory circulation and effectuate the necessary steps to ensure that sensitive company information cannot be reclaimed from the old devices, whether they be Apple desktop computers, MacBooks, iPads, iPhones or servers.
Through the computer and equipment disposal process, Digital Fix Consulting conducts comprehensive and complete erasure of assets per the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) standards and guidelines. Specifically, our data sanitization methods involve overwriting all addressable locations with binary zeroes, overwriting all addressable locations with binary ones (complementing the former), overwriting all addressable locations with random bit patterns and then verifying the final overwrite pass.
This methodology of data destruction prevents future hardware-based data recovery efforts to fully protect your business. If requested or required, Digital Fix Consulting will present client teams with a Certificate of Destruction (CoD) upon completion of the data destruction process. Additionally, Digital Fix Consulting will coordinate and execute the safe physical destruction of requested assets.
