MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With the explosion of big data, corporate data security policies have become more stringent and companies are looking for secure data solutions to destroy sensitive information before it leaves their hands. MPC, an IT Asset Lifecycle Management (ITLM) company based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, has announced the expansion of their services to provide customers with onsite options for certified data sanitization and hard drive shredding.
"We have seen an exponential increase in the demand to perform mobile and onsite data destruction services," says MPC's Sr. Vice President, Gregg Bjork. "These enhanced capabilities help round out our already extensive array of data security solutions."
MPC provides NAID certified data destruction and data sanitization as a standard service for all material entering their facilities. That same level of protection can now be offered at customer locations across the country in compliance with NIST 800-88 and U.S. Department of Defense (DOD 5220.22-M) sanitization guidelines.
In addition to securely preparing equipment for eventual disposal, onsite sanitization is often leveraged for other purposes, such as, sanitizing leased equipment for return or for wiping devices earmarked for redeployment within a customer's enterprise. Customers who take advantage of these data security services may also choose to send their sanitized equipment to MPC for responsible disposition. Onsite options are designed to save customers the time, effort and costs of equipment and software it takes to do this on their own, which if not done properly, increases the risk of inadvertent data loss.
"These offerings give our customers peace of mind. They depend on us to mitigate the risks associated with handling sensitive data," says Bjork. "Whether you have your data destroyed onsite or at MPC, by using a certified company you are following best practices and our ability to offer this as an onsite service is a great enhancement."
MPC is an innovative IT asset Lifecycle Management (ITLM) business setting the standard for secure and certified services that ensure customers maximize the value they receive from technology throughout the entire lifecycle, from acquisition to disposition. Founded in 1983, MPC proudly holds R2, e-Stewards, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and NAID certifications. For more information, visit www.mpc-e.com.
