An organisation’s ICT hardware assets are the backbone of the operation. These tools are used to support and service the business by ensuring accurate tracking, management, and accountability of transactions and services.
But these devices typically have a limited lifespan. And once they can no longer provide a feasible or economical service to the organisation, they have reached end-of-life and are retired. It is at this point that the responsible corporate governance principles require that IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) processes kick in.
This is made necessary by the fact that these devices usually contain potentially sensitive company data, which requires that they be disposed of in such a way that that data cannot be recovered. Furthermore, many electronic devices also contain hazardous materials that require specialist handling and disposal by accredited ITAD vendors and recyclers.
Desco is so accredited and has accumulated more than twenty years’ experience in ITAD. We can provide your organisation with peace of mind during the process by ensuring secure data destruction and offering certified data erasure solutions.
In addition, those assets or asset components that do not or cannot contain any sensitive data can be refurbished and reused. Desco facilitates this process too as another element in its commitment to achieving a zero-to-landfill society in the near future. Our technical centre is equipped to refurbish and recycle those assets that can still add value while passing on those assets and components that are end of life or uneconomical to repair to be recycled responsibly.
