Akooba has come to an agreement with the University of Maryland to assist with the university’s data destruction needs through Akooba’s VisiShred technology. VisiShred is a data destruction technology that creates instant, high definition videos of electronics assets as they are destroyed.

“Akooba is thrilled to be working with the University of Maryland,” said Matthew Young, CEO of Akooba. “Organizations like UMD operate in highly regulated environments where the protection of their constituent’s information is paramount. Through the usage of VisiShred, UMD is able to receive top level of service and NAID certified data destruction.”

Through VisiShred, University of Maryland staff will have access to an online portal to monitor and track their electronic assets as they are transported to Akooba’s data destruction facility. Videos of each asset’s destruction will be made immediately available on the web portal, allowing UMD to provide visual evidence of each drive’s destruction.
