IT asset disposition (ITAD) involves all procedures associated with decommissioning and retiring computer assets. Data centers and large companies with extensive enterprise systems regularly update their systems by bringing in new technology and rotating older technology out of service. For security reasons, any data that is present on drives designated for decommissioning needs to be forensically removed, or those drives need to be physically destroyed. There are significant benefits to data sanitization (complete data erasure) as opposed to drive destruction; however, this has not always been possible for a number of reasons.

Today, advanced technology supports verifiable forensic-grade data sanitization for both hard disk drives (HDDs) and solid state drives (SSDs). High performance and high volume data sanitization processing is also now available for the enterprise. Employing new secure, non-destructive methods with front-end information lifecycle planning allows businesses to recognize value recovery by reallocating or remarketing those assets. This approach offers reduced total cost of ownership of IT assets, while ensuring both secure and sustainable data decommissioning.

Aidin Aghamiri's presentation, scheduled for Monday, June 23 at 6:55 PM in Theater B on the show floor, will focus on the increasing need for a balanced approach to secure asset disposition. Attendees will gain insights that will help them make better business decisions related to their data EoL policies and ITAD programs.
