Port Talbot, Wales -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/06/2013 -- With the EU proposing punitive fines for breaches of European data laws, a leading IT Disposal company is urging organisations to ensure that data is thoroughly removed from all IT equipment before they dispose of it and they warn that many wiping techniques still leave data accessible to those with the appropriate knowledge.
Based in East Grinstead, ADISA Certified eReco provides secure IT Disposal Services to large corporate and private sector clients with 80% of their business in Southern England. Now they have has teamed up with a global provider of data erasure solutions, Tabernus. The result, they say, is that they can offer their clients a data destruction system that allows them to be totally confident that sensitive data has been properly destroyed.
The need for such a service has been highlighted by a recent survey carried out by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) which revealed that an alarming 48% of a sample of 200 second-hand hard drives still contained information with 11% containing information classified as sensitive.
Explaining their decision to become Synergy Partners with Tabernus Europe, eReco Managing Director Jane Taylor commented, “eReco deals with all kinds of Data Bearing IT from PCs and Laptops, to high end servers, storage and networking kit. This partner program allows us to access training and support from Tabernus that maximises the security and efficiency of our off site and on site data wiping processes across all the products we erase. It also gives us access to future software data destruction innovations and ensures we stay at the cutting edge of market knowledge on data destruction across all IT platforms.”
She says that the partnership will not only benefit eReco but also their clients, “It gives our clients peace of mind that they are dealing with a company at the cutting edge of Data Destruction technology whose software and wrap around processes are fit for purpose in the most secure data environments.” Continues Taylor
Meanwhile, welcoming the Partnership, Daniel Dyer of Tabernus said, “With their innovative approach to IT Disposal and first class customer service providing a cost effective but highly secure service, eReco is exactly the sort of organisation that we want to team up with.”
