Asset Recovery is a core service within the Device Lifecycle Management offering. Blue Connections IT is a Blancco certified Silver ITAD partner and will provide you with transparent tracking of equipment that allows full visibility on your equipment and where it ends up. We aim to provide you the best return on your retired and end-of-life hardware through the re-sale of decommissioned equipment whilst complying with environmental best practices.
Blue Connections IT operates 8am-6pm Monday to Friday. Call or email us any time to book a collection. We can also provide secure onsite e-waste bins for local or interstate collection.
Our well-equipped and experienced engineers are readily available to assist with everything from basic collections through to data centre decommissioning across Australia & New Zealand.
Once collected hardware is checked-in to our secure quarantine cage within our warehouse. Access to quarantined hardware is restricted to only certified engineers and monitored with 24/7 CCTV. You will be provided with a detailed summary of checked-in hardware which is held in our secure quarantine cage until written approval to proceed is provided to us.
Once approved we will wipe all data and configurations from your hardware including but not limited to; desktops, laptops, mobiles, tablets, servers, SAN’s and networking equipment. Loose drives, tapes, CD’s, and any other data retaining media will be securely wiped where possible or shredded with photographic evidence provided. No equipment ever leaves our premises unescorted with your data on it. Equipment is then tested and cleaned for repurposing.
All drives are wiped with industry-grade and certified Blancco software. Data destruction certificates are issued to you and every drive/ device is accounted for. A comprehensive, digitally-signed Certificate of Erasure is automatically generated after each erasure. Reporting can be customised to include a wide variety of fields according to your organisation’s compliance and auditing needs. All activities are logged, ensuring absolute transparency and gapless security before and during the auditing process. Each report includes a digital signature for maximum security and to avoid tampering.
Blancco data erasure solutions have been tested, certified, approved and recommended by 15+ governing bodies and leading organisations around the world. No other data erasure software can boast this level of compliance with the rigorous requirements set by government agencies, legal authorities and independent testing laboratories.
Once wiped equipment can be re-imaged and returned, provided to a lessor for lease return, or remarketed to our partner network buyers.
