“ESI Analyst gives us the ability to put information in a safe place, remove it from our clients, then search it and destroy things that we don’t need them to have on their devices, and then return the devices to them without creating tricky metadata issues of them accessing it on the night before they resign” - Wayne Cartwright.
Whether purposeful or accidental, the devices of departing employees often contain data, documents, and information from their former jobs.
