Are You Prepared to Securely Dispose of Solid-State Drives?

Does your organization dispose of solid-state drives while leaving data intact? Improper disposal of solid-state drives or SSDs can leave your data exposed to breaches. Solid-state drives are commonly used in modern computers and laptops for quick boot drives and data storage as the technology becomes affordable and reliable.

Protect the Sensitive Information on Your Solid-State Drives

Many organizations have upgraded from hard disk drives to solid-state drives. Most modern business laptops include a solid-state drive, and high-performance server systems take advantage of 3D NAND and NVMe technology in SSDs. Solid-state drives have less longevity than magnetic hard disk drives due to their limited ability to write and erase the flash cells. This means your organization will likely have SSDs for disposal sooner than you might think. Does your organization have an efficient and secure method of destroying solid-state drives as they begin to degrade? 

A wealth of data is accessible on solid-state drives long after they have been removed from production, and even if they are no longer working. When your solid-state drives are retired due to malfunction or system upgrades, the drive must be properly destroyed. Wiping the drive with software or disposing of broken drives is not enough to prevent a data breach by those with the tools and intent to recover the data from the drive.
