At KBS, your information security is our priority.
It’s why we have a wide portfolio of features and services that protect your IT Assets and your Data throughout their whole lifetime.
Every printer, multifunction device, desktop, server, laptop, hard drive, or in fact any electronic device is a potential security threat and liability. You’ll have seen the headlines. Data loss and unauthorised access of information has been given a high profile in the media, as businesses need to comply with new and ever-changing European rules and regulations.
The fines for data breaches are already staggeringly high. The impact on a company’s reputation and loss of competitive advantage can be even more costly. KBS have a range of services and solutions that not only protect your assets throughout their whole life but at retirement. Protecting your data at the device end of life cycle is as important as protecting that data while it is in use
Where potential risks can hide.......
It’s not just the device hard drives or print devices that present a potential risk to information security. End-Of-Life Software create problems, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 are good examples. When Microsoft stopped issuing updates and patches, those Operating Systems became vulnerable to security threats.
A decommissioned hardware device can contain both digital and physically-stored information. KBS’s comprehensive Data Cleansing Service addresses all potential areas of risk, offering you complete peace of mind that no data can be recovered from a device.
Embedded data is important due to the nature of the data itself. IP addresses, passwords, login information, device information, company information, confidential information, and other bits of information can now become deeply embedded in a device – most of the time where you would not expect it.
