IT Asset Disposition, or ITAD, is the secure and responsible disposal of obsolete, out-of-service, or decommissioned electronics. It includes recycling, refurbishment, and resale, with the ultimate aim of reducing the global e-waste stream and making the electronics manufacturing supply chain more sustainable.
Cobalt is an ITAD firm founded by recyclers who invested in data security in order to provide full-service electronics recycling and reuse to IT-reliant organizations. Cobalt’s processes are backed by third-party audited certifications. From collection to testing, sanitization, and recycling, every step is documented and you receive a report with all the details.
Refurbishment and recycling are the most responsible solutions to the growing global e-waste stream. Even older-generation equipment often has usable parts with resale value. And for everything that is truly at the end of its life, recycling keeps those materials from going to waste. Your IT investment doesn’t belong in a landfill: take advantage of our revenue-sharing and rebate programs to recover the value of your used hardware.
Healthcare organizations and IT providers are liable for the security of patient records and financial information. A data breach can result not only in damage to an organization’s reputation, but fines and other consequences for non-compliance with federal regulations, such as HIPAA.
Threats to your organization’s data can come at any point of the hardware lifecycle, even after it’s been taken offline. The era of digital medical records makes it even more vital to work with a trusted IT asset disposition partner to manage your end-of-service computers, network equipment, and other data-bearing devices.
