Atlantix Global referenced in Gartner's 2018 Market Guide for IT Asset Disposition (video)

SYRACUSE, NY -- Gartner, the world's leading research and advisory company, has referenced Atlantix Global, a division of CXtec, in its Market Guide for IT Asset Disposition (ITAD). The guide is written by Gartner Research Director Rob Schafer and Principal Research Analyst Christopher Dixon and was published on July 26, 2018.

According to Gartner, “This Market Guide helps sourcing, procurement and vendor management leaders working with IT asset managers to identify the right ITAD processes and vendors for their needs.”

The Atlantix Global organization is dedicated to providing simple, secure ITAD services for organizations worldwide.

“When decommissioning and selling back used technology, an organization must find a partner that not only provides maximum value, but also protects the organization’s critical assets,” said Atlantix Global President Brian Glahn. “It’s imperative to find an ITAD provider who offers data sanitization and destruction services and will protect your organization’s data integrity and privacy, all while handling this equipment in an environmentally-responsible way.”

The Market Guide states, “The global ITAD continues to evolve, with growing compliance risk and dramatic shifts in product types and volumes. IT asset managers who manage IT asset disposition (ITAD) continue to struggle with the two material categories of ITAD risk: data security (thorough data sanitization of all data-bearing assets) and proper environmental recycling.”

Gartner recommends “that IT leaders with responsibility for ITAM and ITAD use the following three categories as a checklist for tracking make-or-buy decisions about each category's associated tasks. IT leaders should evaluate whether each ITAD task applies to their environment and, if it does, whether it is best handled internally or outsourced to a specialist ITAD service provider.” The three categories include: Core Disposition Services, Acquisition Services, and Ancillary Services.

Atlantix is one of the largest resellers of enterprise-class equipment in the world. Possessing global capabilities and all the services for the categories listed above, Atlantix has created a specialized, responsible method of streamlining the ITAD process that saves time, reduces expenses, and ensures a secure solution from start to finish. This includes having hyperscale facilities and downstream recyclers that enable Atlantix to efficiently process projects large and small.

“We believe that when an organization is selling back their used hardware at maximum value, you must also protect their data’s integrity as well,” said Glahn. “And then there’s the legal repercussions; the threat to an organization’s brand reputation and the financial impact of a security breach all are too big to ignore.”

Finding an ITAD partner who can handle an organization’s needs, at scale, anywhere in the world is critical. “Atlantix provides data wiping and data destruction services to ensure an organization’s sensitive information is protected and that organization is getting the maximum value for their assets,” said Glahn. “Proper IT asset disposition practices are no longer a luxury, they’re a necessity.”

Atlantix Global was also recognized in the 2016 Market Guide for IT Asset Disposition, written by Gartner Research Director Rob Schafer and Principal Research Analyst Christopher Dixon, published on November 22, 2016. Read more here.

When done correctly, an organization’s data integrity is safe, their budget gets the much-needed boost it needs, and IT professionals get peace of mind. To partner with Atlantix on resolving IT asset disposition needs, call 888 400 6994 or visit http://www.atlantixglobal.com/.
