Types of Digital Data

These days digital data is lurking around everywhere. Sensitive data can be found not only on servers and computers, but also standard office equipment like scanners, printers and copiers or portable devices like USB drives, smartphones, and tablets. With an abundance of data in so many places, it is important to choose an ITAD partner that performs all types of data destruction processes ensuring your data is destroyed completely. InterConnection follows NIST 800-88 Guidelines for Media Sanitization for all types of digital data, safeguarding your information every step of the way.

Office Equipment | Printers, Copiers & Scanners 

Companies frequently overlook the importance of properly disposing of their general office equipment. Office equipment like scanners, printers and copy machines often contain hard drives and memory chips that can retain your data unless it is destroyed. This means that this unsuspecting equipment can actually be the source of a data breach, if it is not handled correctly. Always make sure every piece of your IT equipment is handled in a responsible manner.   



Mobile Devices | Cell Phones, Smartphones & Tablets

The use of mobile devices in the workplace has grown common. What was once just a telephone is now a mini computer. This is why it is absolutely imperative to have an IT Asset Disposition partner for corporate mobile devices. Smartphones and tablets pose an enormous risk of a data breach if not handled appropriately. Many businesses lack security protocols for mobile devices, making company information accessible to outsiders. InterConnection offers an IT Asset Disposition service that provides corporations with a secure, cost effective, environmentally friendly solution to their growing collection of retired mobile devices. Simply resetting the device to factory settings can leave data still vulnerable, which is why InterConnection offers complete data destruction using state of the art wiping software designed specifically for mobile devices.
