(Image source: Andrew Moore/Flickr)Johannesburg-based company Xperien has announced that it had acquired larger facilities due to a growing demand for professional IT Asset Disposal (ITAD) services in South Africa

The company stated that the bigger premises will enable it to provide its customers with new services, such as warehousing, PC reimaging and computer redeployment.

This move is part of Xperien’s growth strategy to provide a wider range of solutions for the effective recovery, reuse and retirement of redundant IT assets. The company is said to provide cost-effective solutions to combat the challenges associated with data loss and to mitigate reputational risk.

Xperien CEO Wale Arewa commented, “The global ITAD market continues to evolve, with growing compliance risk and IT finance. However, there are still many corporate who are yet to understand the benefits of our continuous IT lifecycle solution.”

The company explained that there are far more critical data to sanitise and hardware to properly dispose of because of the dramatic increase of IoT, mobile and connected smart devices. Furthermore, with more companies moving their data centres to the cloud, they often abandon large quantities of enterprise hardware in the process.

“The industry has also seen a shift in product and global compliance requirements like the GDRP that has put increasing pressure on traditional ITAD processes, forcing companies to find more effective solutions,” he added.

Companies can accomplish some of the core disposition services in-house, but they are fast realising that data sanitisation, transportation logistics, warehousing and recycling represent the greatest potential risk and should be outsourced to experienced ITAD vendors, it noted.

“It is crucial for companies to find a balance between cost efficiency and risk mitigation to address the risks ITAD-related data security and improper recycling pose to their brand. They need to partner with ITAD specialists to better identify which ITAD processes they require,” he concluded.
