  • Meet all internal and regulatory data security compliance requirements
  • Handle their full range of IT asset types: desktop, data center, telecom, and office equipment
  • Include onsite de-installation and data erasure.

The Ingram Micro Lifecycle Solution

Ingram Micro implemented a comprehensive global solution that met all client requirements. The solution included:

  • Erasing data from laptop and desktop computers prior to transporting to an ITAD processing facility
