InfoFort, an Aramex company, has announced plans to introduce a new Secure Data Destruction service to its wide portfolio of solutions that have data security, confidentiality and sustainability practices at their core.
As companies deploy new technology into their organisations, they are faced with the problem of what to do with their old and outdated IT assets (such as servers, PCs, laptops, DLTs, LTOs, CDs, DVDs, flash memories and smart phones). Be it data security, safety, confidentiality, legislation or environmental policies, it is no longer safe or acceptable for companies to simply throw out old technology or just pass them along to a third party.
“The world has entered an information industrial revolution of sorts,” said Abed Shaheen, Managing Director of InfoFort. “For the first time, organisations across the world are collectively producing far more information than anyone is able to store. While new filtering techniques are helping to determine what information is worth keeping, an even bigger emerging question is what to do with the information that isn’t – and this is where InfoFort steps in.”
InfoFort’s secure data destruction service provides comprehensive solutions for data security and disposal of retired IT assets in line with industry best practice, international security standards and with full commitment to the environment. InfoFort utilises recognised recycling methods that guarantee zero landfill, zero incineration and process all materials in an eco-friendly manner, while maximising the re-use of all components.
InfoFort’s well-trained and experienced staff work side by side with clients to choose the most secure and suitable method to destroy media, including data wiping, degaussing, crushing and shredding. InfoFort can implement these services directly onsite at the clients’ premises or offsite at secure InfoFort information management centres throughout the Middle East and Africa.
With 24/7 security, electronic access control and CCTV monitoring, InfoFort guarantees that clients’ data remain uncompromised. To guarantee this level of security, InfoFort provides all required resources including, but not limited to packing, collection, transportation, inventory and decommissioning.
All InfoFort services are in compliance with US / NSA / CSS and all equipment used assures well-documented compliance with security codes and standards including PCI DDS / NIST / NIST SP 800-36 / NIST SP 800-88 / HIPAA / PIPEDA / GLBA.
“In an age in which data can be stored physically, electronically, locally or on a cloud network, managing information has never been more challenging,” concluded Shaheen. “We are therefore extremely delighted to announce plans to introduce this new innovative secure data destruction service to our growing portfolio of solutions and we are confident that it will add great value and satisfy the growing data security and sustainability needs for our clients.”
