Did you know we use YouWipe Certified Data Erasure software? Which means, when it comes to disposing of your old IT equipment, using Asset Disposal means you’re in safe hands.

YouWipe Certified Data Erasure is widely used across both the private and public sectors. Why? Because it meets and exceeds strict government regulations and industry standards, including GDPR and the Data Protection Act. Which means it’s been recognised and successfully certified by governments and independent security organizations, such as NATO and the UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). Others include the Dutch General Intelligence and Security Service, the Finnish National Cyber Security Centre (TRAFICOM) and ADISA (UK Asset Disposal and Information Security Alliance), to name but a few.

We’ve written before about the importance of protecting your data when it comes to disposing of redundant IT equipment. Failure to do so could not only lead to huge fines, but it could also cost you your reputation. With YouWipe Certified Data Erasure, 100% of all data on any treated device is erased; devices include solid state drives, hard disk drives, servers, PCs, laptops, mobiles and tablets. What’s more, once a device has been erased, a digitally signed, tamper-proof certificate of erasure provides you with a detailed audit trail ensuring you comply with your external or internal auditing requirements.

Data Erasure or Data Destruction

Ultimately, whether you opt for data erasure or data destruction, the end result is the same. Data erasure overwrites the information on the data carrier. Data destruction physically destroys the data carrier.

Data erasure means that the data carrier can be used again, so arguably the most eco-friendly method. However, in the event that we physically destroy the data carrier, you can rest assured that the materials are responsibly recycled, meaning the raw materials, some of which have become quite scarce, can be recovered.

Whichever method you opt for, our data erasure process has been designed to be effortless from start to finish and you can sleep easy knowing that your data is in safe hands.
