For years, government agencies have processed their IT assets at the end of life by physically destroying workstations and server drives. This process is seen as 100% reliable for the destruction of data, but there is a cost to the lost drives since they cannot resell or donate them. In the last two years, higher costs for SSD and NVMe drives have made physical destruction both more expensive and an environmental travesty.
New data clearing technology and certifications for data sanitization provide agencies with a strategic alternative. Agencies are now able to securely erase data on platter-based, SSD and NVMe data-bearing devices. This can save agencies on cost and loss of resale value while also being environmentally sustainable.
