Modern IT infrastructures drive multiple requirements for data protection – from the deployment of a server farm to the usage of mobile devices and the remarketing and disposal of equipment at the end of its use. Only an integral approach to a product’s entire lifecycle can ensure continuous data protection through all stages.
Workplace systems, servers, storage, smartphones, etc., regardless of whether the surplus equipment gets recycled, redeployed or resold, most products still carry data. Ensuring a professional and risk sensitive way to protect and delete data during equipment returns requires a "complete picture" approach, which includes end-to-end returns logistic to state-of-the-art data erasure with audit-proof documentation. An always changing IT environment driven by technological developments and continuous regulatory modifications requires dedicated focus to ensure up-to-date conformance with internal and external data protection requirements at the end of use.
