While firewalls and other security measures protect data on the front end of the storage life cycle, it is equally important to protect data at the back end. When it comes to returning, reselling, repurposing, trading, or swapping out storage assets, companies need secure and complete data erasure to meet corporate governance, industry specifications, and governmental mandates. Reliable and proven data erasure services dramatically reduce potential legal litigation due to uncontrolled distribution or viewing, avoid the physical destruction of perfectly good equipment, and address any security concerns. As a result, companies can safely sell or reuse storage equipment and ensure they have the audit trail necessary to meet corporate and industry conformance requirements. Most importantly, this will protect an organization's most valuable asset - its information.
