EU Business – Enterprise

The EU aims to make EU industry and business more competitive and to promote job creation and economic growth by creating a business-friendly environment, particularly for small businesses and the manufacturing industry.

Industry is key to economic recovery

Industrial competitiveness, innovation and entrepreneurship are the keys to Europe’s economic recovery.

With globalisation and stronger competition from emerging countries, Europe’s long-term economic prosperity will depend on the strength of our industrial base, not on services and banks alone.

As regards industry and innovation, by 2020 the EU aims to:

  • strengthen its industrial base and promote transition to a low-carbon economy
  • promote innovation as a means to generate new sources of growth
  • encourage small businesses and promote an entrepreneurial culture
  • guarantee an EU-wide market for goods
  • contribute to the European presence in space.

Small businesses & entrepreneurship

Europe’s 23 m small businesses (SMEs):

  • account for 99 % of businesses
  • provide 67 % of jobs
  • create 85 % of all new jobs.

EU policy is designed to improve the business environment, promote a climate of entrepreneurship and job creation. and give small businesses easier access to finance and markets .

Europe has unexploited entrepreneurial potential. Although 38 % of Europeans say they would like to be their own boss, only 10 % are self-employed. The EU is working to increase this percentage, to generate jobs and rejuvenate the economic base.

Prolimax ITAD Services

Prolimax provides IT asset disposition (ITAD) service enabling our clients to dispose of obsolete or redundant equipment in a safe and ecologically responsible manner. As part of our service we deploy Blancco Data Erasure software.

By utilising Blancco software, we ensure all data from your IT Assets are securely and completely destroyed prior to remarketing or recycling. Data erased by Blancco is permanently deleted and cannot be recovered.

This in turn allows the IT Asset to be safely remarketed without any risk of retaining customer residual data, protecting against fraud and loss of sensitive company information.

We use Blancco 5 for hard drives and Blancco Mobile 5 for mobility products. Blancco’s software is certified in both Europe and the US by independent test and evaluation institutions and meets the demands of leading data wiping standards on the market today.

Our solution for desktops, laptops, servers and storage environments, as well as mobility products, provides total peace of mind to our clients for the security of their data. A fully comprehensive post-erasure report provides proof of data deletion. These are digitally-signed detailed erasure reports enabled by enhanced hardware detection and contain extensive erasure information, including HDD details for seamless audit procedures.

Any hard disk drives or data bearing devices that cannot be successfully wiped or are not suitable for remarketing, are destroyed by shredding in a certified Recycling process. A ‘Certificate of Destruction’ is issued after every shredding process as proof that secure physical destruction of confidential material has been completed.

Prolimax data wiping service gives our customers peace of mind that their data has been securely erased. We are able to provide data erasure services for all types and quantities of devices, on site at our client’s premises or at our processing facility in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
