XPO IT and Insurgo Media Sign Five Year Business Partnership

Blog > Announcements > XPO IT and Insurgo Media Sign Five Year Business Partnership

XPO has joined forces with the tape media experts, Insurgo, in a bid to provide all customers with the most secure data destruction services on the market

Now in our 20th year as an ITAD provider, we have erased or destroyed both sensitive and personal data for a number of companies across the globe, and we strongly believe that being able to demonstrate compliance is paramount to customer satisfaction.

For our business, security is a top priority; and so it should be! For any company handling the destruction or erasure process for large amounts of data bearing assets, it’s crucial that they can prove to their customers that their data is in the best hands possible. That’s why we have the following industry standard certification: ISO 27001, ISO 14001, ISO 9001, ADISA accreditation (merit).

We pride ourselves in being able to give our customers complete peace of mind

When it comes to disposing of their media tapes, we want to offer our customers the best possible solution and that’s exactly why we’ve teamed up with Insurgo Media. Who confidently pride themselves in being the ONLY organisation in the world that can guarantee all traces of data (yes, every single byte) is removed from a tape before it is disposed of – without destroying the tapes servo tracks, which not only is undoubtedly the most secure data destruction method, but it also decreases the environmental impact of the redundant tapes, allowing them to be reinitialised to the market, as if they were new. This process is so secure and so precise that it’s extremely difficult for other data destruction providers to offering a competitive solution, so our thinking was: if you can’t beat them, join them! That way our customers will still get the best possible service, and we get to partner with a company as passionate about data destruction as we are.

“We at XPO pride ourselves in being able to give our customers complete peace of mind that their data is being handled the right way. With this in mind, we knew that when it came to expanding the services we offer, we would want to partner with a like-minded company such as Insurgo.

It’s great to go into partnership, Insurgo have been global leaders in tape media management for over a decade. I’ve worked with their MD, Gavin Griffiths for just over five years and we’ve always worked really well together so I know it will be a terrific partnership moving forward.”

A word from Insurgo, Gavin Griffiths, Managing Director:

“Here at Insurgo we see the value partnering opportunities such as this has on our respective customers, therefore it’s a principal objective within our new UK and global strategy, however, it is imperative to mention that our partnership offerings are very limited, we only accept a select number of elite organisations that can match our commitment to security.

We felt that with XPO’s experienced and specialist background would be an ideal partnership for us and we are more than happy to be involved with the increasing scope of their services in providing their customers with a great service for tape media disposal”
