IT Asset Disposition (ITAD)

Unlike many ITADs that operate on a “rip, strip and flip” model without the skilled technical and project staff to run complex decommission projects, Sphaera ensures all storage media elements are sanitized, destroyed (or both) in strict accordance with the NIST 800-88 Rev. 1 standards.

We offer even more rigorous services that comply with the NSA/CSS Policy Manual 9-12 for physical destruction

For your peace of mind and compliance requirements, we issue audit-proof certificates by description, function and serial number.

Iceland Data Suite Decommission Case Study

Why Sphaera?

The level of sophistication that is required to successfully complete decom projects is way more convoluted than the physical element we are talking about but that’s what constitutes success for customers.

The difference that Sphaera offers, and where we have seen tremendous success, is coming in  and talking to the customer early on about what they are doing from a business perspective. We take a more consultative approach: are you moving to the cloud, are you moving across town, are you downsizing, are you expanding? And really, our value proposition is helping our customers throughout their journey, safely, without downtime… production applications, development environments, and the whole nine yards.

What Sphaera really offers is trust and risk mitigation.”
