What Is ITAD? – A Guide to IT Asset Disposition
Businesses across the United States and around the world are increasingly relying on ITAD to maintain data security, manage IT asset disposal, and for many other services – but what is ITAD?
What is ITAD and why should businesses be incorporating it into their operations? Data is now more prevalent than at any other time in history, most of which is stored on digital devices and in data centers used by businesses and institutions around the world. Keeping these devices and the data stored therein secure includes safe data disposal when these devices reach the end of their usable lifespan.
ITAD is a growing industry that seeks to resolve these new, modern problems for businesses and organizations. In addition to the rampant rise of cyberattacks, which are increasingly becoming more frequent and more severe, businesses are also increasingly looking for sustainable methods of disposing of redundant IT assets. ITAD can mitigate many of the risks associated with data security and data privacy while also improving sustainability.
