Our process involves several steps to ensure the safe handling and disposal of hardware:

  1. We start by disconnecting all hardware from firewalls, subnetworks, and power supplies.
  2. Next, we carefully remove server rails, racks, shelves, and drawers.
  3. We handle transport to our facility ensuring the safety of the assets.
  4. Data security is a top priority for us. Following the NIST 800-88 guidelines, we thoroughly erase all data from the hardware.
  5. For end-of-life devices, we securely shred them and provide Certificates of Data Destruction as proof.
  6. In cases where devices have been wiped clean or destroyed, we issue Certificates of Data Sanitization.

By following this comprehensive process, we ensure that hardware is handled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally responsible manner.
