importance of data protection and security
As important as the physical disposition of equipment is to our planet, the protection and proper handling of our clients’ data is just as critical. ASI utilizes a variety of Data Eradication techniques and methodologies, such as the NAID approved Secure Erase process which completely eradicates data, yet renders the hard drive functional for future use. Processes such as these and others, have replaced less effective industry standards such as DOD wipes, and provide our clients with greater assurances that their risk in this process has been eliminated.
In short, ASI provides our clients with a compliant and secure service that yields value at every step in the process. We provide Transfer of Asset and Transfer of Liability Certificates to our clients, and utilize only facilities that possess the highest level of certification from both equipment and a data processing perspective.
asi supports reuse before recycle
Our firm is an embedded IT organization, and thus ASI approaches Asset Disposition from an IT perspective. While many providers in the market today are scrappers and recyclers, ASI is able to engage our clients at a higher level.
Our offerings support the EPA's R2/RIOS initiative of REUSE before RECYCLE. Because we are an IT firm, our staff is capable of restoring and refurbishing devices to a state of usability. We have teams of buyers who seek to purchase used, functioning devices, and the sale of these goods results in a profit sharing process between ASI and our clients.
When systems cannot be reused, certain components which are still functioning, and therefore have value, may be pulled for future use and again, a profit share is provided to our clients.
