Pyramid Technology offers the best-in-class IT asset disposition (ITAD) services to its customers worldwide and instills confidence that decommissioned assets are managed securely and responsibly.
You can count on our IT asset disposition for:
Asset Accountability: A secure chain-of-custody to provide an auditable verification for the physical location of assets at all times.
Data Security: All data eradication and destruction services are compliant with most international standards and backed by a Certificate of Data Erasure and Destruction.
Environmental Responsibility: We are one of only ten companies with e-Stewards® Certification, which means that any equipment not reused is recycled in the most environmentally responsible manner. All disposal services meet or exceed the EPAs guidelines and are backed by a Certificate of Recycling.
Customers can tap into a wide array of services to meet their IT asset disposition needs:
A secure chain-of-custody framework ensures accountability for all assets. Assets are accounted for at the time of pickup with the generation of a detailed bill of lading and photographed shipments. All trucks have sealed shipments, padlocked cargo areas and GPS tracking. Upon receipt, the shipment is again photographed and all assets are verified against the bill of lading to confirm the safe transport of each item. A serialized audit report is issued upon completion of processing. Throughout all steps of processing, each asset is tracked by its location to its end disposition – whether sold or recycled. This method of management of the chain-of-custody keeps asset inventory under strict control and complies with SOX requirement
All assets containing storage media go through the data erasure process: a standard 3-pass U.S. DoD 5220.22-M-compliant overwrite of the drive to render the data irretrievable. Utilizing Blancco software, a detailed account of the overwrite process is captured by drive. If the results of the overwrite indicate even one bad sector, or the drive fails the process, the drive is pulled and physically shredded. Data wipe services support a number of international standards, including:
Air Force System Security Instructions 5020
Bruce Schneier’s and Peter Gutman’s Algorithms
German Standard BSI / VISTR
HMG Infosec Standard No: 5, The Baseline Standard, Enhanced Standard
National Security Agency 130-1
Navy Staff Office (NAVSO P-5239-26) for RLL
NIST 800-88 / ATA Secure Erase
NIST 800-88 Extended
National Computer Security Centre (NCSC-TG-025)
U.S. Army AR380-19
U.S. Department of Defense (DoD 5220.22-M, DoD 5220.22-M ECE
These standards mitigate the liabilities companies face with data privacy-legislation such as HIPAA, GLBA, FACTA and FCRA.
We are certified for conformance to the e-Stewards Standard for Responsible Recycling and Reuse of Electronic Waste®. This standard requires a fully-auditable downstream of all materials, confirming that no e-waste or focus materials are exported, landfilled or incinerated. Materials are tracked throughout the recycling process to their end disposition with a smelter or refinery where they are re-processed for reuse in future manufacturing. As a result, ongoing comprehensive audits are performed for all downstream recycling partners to ensure compliance and protect the environment.
