Gartner's Market Guide is an excellent resource for organizations developing their ITAD programs.
Gartner, a leading IT market research firm, issued its Market Guide (2016) for the IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) industry. The report provides an overview of important issues for enterprises to consider when developing their ITAD program and selecting a service provider. It also lists a representative sample of a variety of vendors in the ITAD market. Cascade is included in the list of 17 vendors that have a global and/or regional focus.
“ITAD service providers have become an important link in the overall life cycle management of IT equipment," notes Gartner, Inc. in its Market Guide for IT Asset Disposition, Rob Schafer and Christopher Dixon, November 22, 2016. "The number and complexity of legislative mandates (often country- or region-specific) for the secure and environmentally friendly disposal of IT equipment continue to grow rapidly, and the consequences of noncompliance are quickly attracting board-level attention.”
“The three most important tasks to execute correctly, and to which ITAD executives should pay special attention, are data sanitization, transportation logistics and recycling," the Gartner report goes on to say. "These three tasks represent the greatest risk in the ITAD process, and should be handled by an experienced, well-vetted ITAD service vendor.”
Cascade's fully managed ITAD services provide both on-site and offsite data destruction services, a secure chain of custody transportation solution, and recycling to the most stringent standards in the industry.
