Our expertise is mitigating our clients’ risk by eliminating environmental liabilities and ensuring complete data security. OceanTech’s procedures follow very strict processes to increase your level of security and lower any potential risk, nearly eliminating the possibility of a security breach.
Our process exceeds all local, federal and international standards and data destruction regulations. We comply with R2 standards for data security, which means that absolutely no data may leave our secure facility without first being overwritten, sanitized or physically destroyed. OceanTech also complies with and exceeds the expectations of the NIST Special Publication 800-88 Guidelines for Media Sanitization as well as the implementation of DoD 5220.22-M standards.
At OceanTech, we utilize a patent-pending wiping solution that is consistent in all of our data sanitation and data destruction processes. OceanTech guarantees that sensitive data is non-recoverable. We are extremely confident in our guarantee – we regularly perform Quality Control checks by sending randomly selected equipment to Kroll Ontrack for expert recovery attempts and they have yet to recover any data on any device sent by us for testing.
For further protection of client privacy, we also remove any asset tags or proprietary labels on equipment.
Whether you need to retire just a few devices, or an entire building’s worth of servers, data centers, and office work stations, OceanTech offers a secure chain of custody from pick-up to completion.
We only ship your equipment in our own secure vehicles and all shipments are sealed before leaving the data center to ensure every load is tamperproof. All vehicles are tracked via GPS from departure until arriving at our facility for final destruction.
Once the equipment arrives at our secure facility, our clients can monitor and keep track of their assets through our secure client portal. Our custom reporting and tracking system allows you to monitor your assets from pick-up to completion.
During the entire decommission procedure, we track and catalogue your assets. Once the equipment arrives at our secure facility, our clients can monitor and keep track of their assets through our secure client portal. Our custom reporting and tracking system allows you to monitor your assets from pick-up to completion.
Once the data destruction has been successfully completed, OceanTech will issue a Certificate of Data Destruction to the client that details the make, model, and serial number of each asset that has been secured, sanitized or destroyed. The Certificate of Data Destruction will meet all of your audit requirements for proper data removal and destruction procedures.
Any reports and certificates issued by OceanTech may be stored on our secure online portal for client reference or retrieval at a later date.
