We report back to you specific information about the data cleansing of each
unit. Asset tags and serial numbers are collected and removed, and the system
is readied for data overwriting. We can customize any job. Please contact us with any specific questions
you may have.
A technician verifies that the software has successfully overwritten the data
before sending the system down the line. Its progress is monitored and recorded, and an
audit technician selectively performs additional testing. Finally, the successfully overwritten system
is ready to be resold or recycled for parts.
We provide a detailed status report of the data cleansing and outcome of each
retired system. We also can provide a Confirmation of Disposal to verify that
your data was removed or destroyed and that all recycling met or exceeded all
local regulatory guidelines. In addition, for all equipment disposals, we
provide a settlement report which lists the resell value of each piece of
resold hardware and documents any other disposed equipment.
