The financial and security risk associated with company data left on end-of-life corporate-liable devices is a legitimate and growing concern. The cost of data breaches is on the rise. Even when employees or MDM software is resetting a device to factory settings and wiping data, it doesn’t prevent individuals with bad intent from retrieving confidential information from a discarded device.
To address this growing security concern and also to be more environmentally conscious with mobile device disposal, MobilSense provides certified recycling and disposal. This service provides a one-stop-shop for wiping and disposal integrated with MobilSentry™ Order Manager.
To wipe the data successfully from a device no longer in service requires the expertise of a certified organization that meets industry and U.S. federal government standards. Complete data destruction requires supplemental technology and expertise to wipe all retrievable data because device manufacturers do not provide adequate tools.
Most mobile phones contain plastics and precious metals, and when placed in a landfill can pollute the air and contaminate soil and drinking water. Recycling obsolete mobile phones promote a positive impact on the environment by protecting natural resources.
