What is IT Asset Disposition (ITAD)?

by | Mar 16, 2023 | Business

IT asset disposition (ITAD) is the process of disposing of, recycling, or repurposing IT equipment and the data contained within them.

It’s important to note that data destruction is crucial for ITAD. Without the destruction of data, you’re looking at the possibility of a data breach or loss of data, as well as potential loss of equipment value.

Why do I need IT Asset Disposition?

There are a few situations where ITAD is necessary to proceed securely and effectively: 

  1. Your company wants to get rid of old equipment that is taking up space in a back storage area somewhere. 
  2. Your company would like to liquidate old equipment for investment recovery
  3. Your company is looking to recycle equipment in a way that is environmentally sustainable.

When you’re dealing with used electronic equipment, it’s imperative that you do everything you can to prevent losing data, or exposing yourself to a potential data breach. Mitigating that risk is why IT Asset Disposition is so important, and why choosing an IT Asset Disposition Company that matches your compliance requirements for data destruction and IT asset management can make all the difference.
