At ECS, we understand that data security and brand protection are of the utmost importance to our enterprise clients. Drawing on decades of experience, adhering to strict operating procedures, and utilizing state-of-the-art software, we eliminate the downstream liability involved with IT asset disposition.
A significant risk of IT asset disposition (ITAD) is the possibility of an IT asset being repurposed or dumped without the removal of the asset tag. ECS removes all asset tags to ensure that your brand is protected. No electronic device leaves any of our facilities without being physically shredded or stripped of its asset tag.
As a company with core competencies in asset management and electronics recycling services, ECS is equipped to fulfill any and all of your IP destruction requirements. We securely handle and shred data-containing drives, branded hardware, prototypes, and any other material whose exposure poses a risk to your organization.
In many cases, hard drives retain significant value and physical destruction is not the most desirable method for destroying the data contained within them. ECS has sophisticated techniques for effectively wiping data from hard drives that allow value to be recovered through resale. Our most common drive wiping standards are NIST 800-88 and DOD 5220.22-M. Contact us to learn about our additional data wiping capabilities.
ECS provides assurance that your material is processed properly by issuing certificates of compliance for recycling, destruction, and data sanitization. Additionally, we offer witnessed destruction services, meaning customers can observe the physical destruction of material in person or via a live video feed.
ECS provides an option for equipment that is at the end of the leasing period. When clients choose to no longer keep the materials, ECS can provide revenue for the equipment and offer a buy back price, allowing organizations to offset the cost of the materials or possibly provide a profit after the remainder of the lease agreement is paid.
