B&L continues its expansion into the IT asset disposition (ITAD) market
NATICK, MA — June 11, 2013 — B&L Associates, Inc., a leader in data security and tape management solutions, today announced that it has become a member of the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID). Joining NAID is part of B&L's expansion into the secure data destruction market that started with the release of AssetAware® in April.
NAID is the international trade association for companies providing information destruction services. Their mission is to promote the information destruction industry and the standards and ethics of its member companies.
"We're very excited about joining NAID and are looking forward to contributing to the vitality of this emerging market," said Michael Kramer, VP Sales and Marketing at B&L Associates.
In late April, B&L announced the release of AssetAware, a unique cloud-based solution that mitigates compliance and litigation risk by ensuring that the disposition of IT assets—from servers and switches to hard drives and laptops—is properly managed and thoroughly secure. AssetAware also provides a comprehensive, easy-to-access audit trail for inventory, regulatory and litigation purposes.
According to recent reports, the security of IT asset disposition (ITAD) is a leading concern with IT professionals who have been seeing the volume of data produced by business growing exponentially with no end in sight.
"With AssetAware, we've been able to bring our expertise in data security and tracking gained from our industry-leading media management solutions to the IT asset disposition space," continued Kramer.
