ITAD FAQ’s

Worldwide Partnerships & Coverage

Global organisations deal with massive amounts of data and IT assets to remain competitive and to provide superior services to their clients, which is why IT asset disposition has become a critical service in recent decades. What is IT asset disposition and why do organisations require robust ITAD services?

Devices such as PCs, laptops, mobile phones, tablets and data centre servers have all made our lives easier, but they do pose a challenge when it comes to managing the rotation of redundant IT assets safely and securely.

Data breaches from improperly discarded devices can cost millions, whilst compromising the reputation and goodwill of the business. It is therefore crucial that redundant IT equipment is properly disposed of in a secure manner whilst meeting corporate social responsibility goals of environmental stewardship through recycling when possible.

Wisetek’s clients trust our secure and compliant processes. We are committed to the secure and thorough destruction of data as well as the provision of secure ITAD services that maximise your financial return on investment and manage the logistics of your IT assets securely.

The Importance of IT Asset Disposition Certification

The IT asset disposition market has boomed in recent decades, mostly due to the steep rise in severe cyberattacks and costly data breaches, which in 2021 have reached their highest point in the past 17 years. The need for safe, secure ITAD services has perhaps never been greater for global organisations.

Whenever your organisation requires data shredding services or IT disposal services, ensure that your ITAD company provides your organisation with IT asset disposition certificates. Certification, such as data destruction certificates and video verification of data erasure provide reassurance that, in the event of an audit, your organisation has maintained compliance and due diligence with regards to secure data destruction.

Wisetek provides clients with data destruction certificates and a clear audit trail. Rest assured that our ITAD processes are secure, not only by taking our word for it but by holding comprehensive records and certificates of data destruction for each and every IT asset we process.

How to Select the Right ITAD Provider

With the cost of data breaches increasing worldwide to an average of $4.37 million (about €3.72 million), as well as their increasing frequency and severity, choosing the right ITAD provider is an important, necessary step towards mitigating risk vectors and remaining compliant with regulations in the EU such as the GDPR as well as data disposal laws.

IT asset disposition companies must be reputable and reliable, with a truly global reach, online process portals, top-notch security, ISO-certified, provide excellent ROI on redundant IT assets, all whilst reducing electronic waste. Features such as a circular economy model and a commitment to a zero-landfill policy are also highly beneficial.

Wisetek fulfils all of these criteria, thus making us your organisation’s ideal choice for secure, reliable IT asset disposition services. We provide clients with IT asset disposition services such as hard drive destruction, data center decommissioning services, secure data destruction services, and more.

IT Asset Disposition and the Circular Economy Model

All along the supply chain of modern economies, from raw resource extraction to production, distribution, retail, end-users, and ultimately to disposal as unrecyclable waste, there are opportunities to reduce, reuse, and/or recycle IT assets in whole or in part. That’s where Wisetek’s Circular Economy model fits in.

We are committed to a zero-landfill policy that eliminates needless electronic waste, a global problem currently at a point of crisis. To this end, we engage in IT equipment recyclingand we are e-Stewards certified recyclers. Redundant IT assets can also be refurbished and resold globally with our extensive network of resellers, further reducing electronic waste.

Our commitment to a zero-landfill policy by means of a circular economy model not only contributes to solving the global electronic waste problem, but it’s also an excellent way of improving your organisation’s efforts towards environmental stewardship as part of a holistic corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy.
