More isn’t always better, and that can apply to how your company securely disposes of end-of-life data bearing IT assets. This is particularly relevant in reference to how the data is wiped, i.e., sanitized. A little bit of history can explain why the best solution for most companies today has changed.
The year 2018 is a landmark year -- not only for Sipi Asset Recovery, but for our entire industry -- as well as all facets of data security. The market for IT asset disposition is gaining strength and has become more of a core focus than ever before. Many factors have driven this and will continue to drive this trend.
What drove our industry in 2018
Technological advancements in data storage are forever altering the playing field, and
At Sipi Asset Recovery, data is a central part of what we do. Specifically, how we help our clients protect their brand, ensure that data is securely destroyed at the right time, and keep costs low while returning as much value as we can.
But the storage landscape is changing, and it’s changing fast. This means that companies are encountering new challenges when it comes to how those drives can and should be handled, from data security to end-of-lifecycle destruction.
Do you know precisely where all your IT assets are and where they fall in the lifecycle? Is there a possibility your assets have been misreported or it’s been a while since an audit’s been done?
Maybe your company doesn’t have the time or proper resources to inventory all assets, or you simply “don’t know what you don’t know.” Also consider the possibility of loss or theft; studies show that nearly 30% of assets have been either lost or stolen – creating some of the largest data breaches to-date.
Sipi Asset Recovery, based on decades of experience in the field, understands these challenges and the risks surrounding IT asset inventory.

Topics: The Asset Lifecycle
The Gartner Summit was held September 5-7, 2018 in Orlando, Florida.
The Sipi Asset Recovery team attended both as a client of Gartner, as well as an exhibitor focused on IT asset management and disposition services. There were a multitude of other vendors that fit to the categories of the summit, but IT asset disposition vendors represented about a third of the total 23 ITAM vendors. Each vendor offered a solution to address the multitude of pain points and opportunities in asset management.
Similarly to past events, Gartner delivers on all forefronts. The logistics were well planned, the content and presenters showed true expertise and the participants and vendors matched the purpose of the event. They had me at Lou Holtz. Who doesn’t love one of the most distinguished, all-American football coaches? Lou captured the essence of working as a collaborative team and prioritizing purposeful and passionate work.
