Company financial and security risk associated with enterprise 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 deter individuals with nefarious intent from extracting private information from a discarded device. A recent IBM study cites a 6% data breach increase from 2017 to 2018 where a single breach can cost a company millions of dollars, per incident.
Ensuring that all data is removed from a device no longer in service requires the expertise of a certified organization who meets industry and government standards. To address this growing security concern along with our clients increasing interest in the environmentally conscious disposal of mobile devices, MobilSense announces its partnership with a certified recycle and disposal company. This capability is included at no additional charge for those who subscribe to our Help Desk service. Simply enter a termination or upgrade order through MobilSentry™ Order Manager and a return box for shipping the old device will be shipped.
How does the new MobilSense Lifecycle Service work?
When an upgrade order placed via MobilSentry™ Order Manager has been approved, a return box for shipping the old device is delivered to the same shipping address of the upgrade device.
Why is my mobile data still at risk if have reset to factory settings? The only way to truly protect data is to physically remove bits on the internal drive of the device. To simply reset or delete only hides the information from a typical user.
Why do mobile phones need to be recycled?
Most mobile phones contain plastics and precious metals that when placed in a landfill can pollute the air and contaminate the soil and drinking water.
