Security and data protection are top priority at Interseroh. We handle each step in a process according to our high standards of quality and security, which ensures the secure handling of equipment and any sensitive data that may still be present. Following the letter of the law and BSI guidance, we then meticulously destroy the data. You then receive a detailed report that references each piece of equipment by its serial number.
We perform the actual data erasure step using Blancco, the market leader for data destruction software, while ensuring compliance with security standards such as ISO 27001, ISO 27040, PCI DSS, HIPAA, FedRAMP or NIST. We log each and every operation and provide these records for audits. If storage media are found to be defective or cannot be reused for any other reasons, we organise their disposal to professional standards.
Certified resource protection with Interseroh
For each service it provides, Interseroh ensures careful handling of the kinds of resources found in IT components, for example. Business IT equipment in particular often has only a short useful life. Our refurbishing service can prevent this equipment from simply being disposed of: instead, devices are given a new and appropriate lease of life. We also certify the quantity of resources thereby saved for our customers – either on a project-related or annual basis. Call us for details.

Frequent questions of our customers
- What is refurbishment/refurbished IT?
This involves preparing second-hand devices for reuse. Alongside hardware cleaning and part repair or replacement, full anonymisation is also performed, i.e. Interseroh erases every trace of data in these devices. New software may also be installed.
- Why should companies not simply throw used hardware away?
IT and communications equipment often has only a short useful life. Even used, however, most devices are fully functional and much too valuable to trash. We handle the certified and secure refurbishment of this equipment, turning it into a resalable asset for your company or a welfare organisation, for example.
- What products/used electrical items does Interseroh purchase?
Monitors, PCs, laptops, tablets, smartphones, servers and storage, network equipment and consumer electronics.
- How is pick-up organised?
We arrange the pick-up of equipment you no longer need to suit your individual requirements. We work with our logistics partners to offer a quick and secure pick-up service at your premises. We also offer an on-site equipment removal and transit-secure packaging service.
