Newton, Mass.-based LifeSpan, a provider of IT asset disposition (ITAD) solutions, says it has introduced specialized services designed to ensure the secure and compliant disposal of tablet devices.

According to Gartner Research, tablet shipments will grow almost 68 percent this year, while PC and laptop shipment will decline more than 10 percent. In light of this trend, LifeSpan says it has implemented new technology and procedures to continue to meet its clients’ needs for secure, compliant asset disposition.

“Data security for disposition has historically focused on PCs, laptops and servers,” Dag Adamson, LifeSpan president, says. “LifeSpan recognizes that tablets and other mobile devices are a significant and growing asset category for enterprises. The complexity of data erasure has increased with these new devices and the SSD (solid state drives) that they utilize. We’ve invested in new technology, training and processes in order to ensure auditable, secure data erasure for our clients.”

LifeSpan’s tablet and mobile device service covers iOS (Apple), Android and Windows 8 devices.

Founded in 2002, LifeSpan is a managed services company providing end-of-life data security, IT and electronic asset retirement, and asset remarketing services to enterprises, lease companies and government and nonprofit organizations nationwide.
