Media Assurance Program
In the hi-tech, fast paced Data Center world, even the best storage devices can fail. When these failures occur, IT professionals need assurance that they will be able to protect one of the most important assets—data. Typically, when replacing failed media, it must be returned and becomes the property of the manufacturer. This could potentially expose some or all of the data on defective disks as it could be accessible through a variety of tools and techniques. Simply letting the data leave a facility could lead to penalties under government regulations like HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), or all the other international, federal, state, local, and industry regulations now in effect. Additionally, M.A.P. allows organizations within the government, healthcare, education, and finance ecosystems to maintain full disclosure over the entire chain-of-custody for regulatory compliance.
This problem is easily solved with Axiom's Media Assurance Program (M.A.P.). Axiom eliminates the return of failed media devices and enables users to control the disposal process in accordance with data security requirements.
By helping secure the privacy of highly sensitive information stored hard drives or SSDs, businesses are able to better manage government regulations, helping to avoid penalties associated with noncompliance.

How it works
In the event of a problem, Axiom tech support will first diagnose the disk and determine the need for a replacement. After it is determined that replacements are needed, the customer must inform Axiom support agents of their intent to keep the failing component. The customer will supply the information found on the label of the malfunctioning disk drive/component to the support agents. Once all information has been confirmed, the replacement is sent to the customer who will be responsible for destroying and/or permanently removing the device.
