Safety throughout the process chain

Information security and data protection permeate the entire logistics: if desired, the hardware can be stowed in lockable roll containers and specially developed, dangerous goods-compliant laptop boxes, in which it is transported by a trained team in the company's own fleet of vehicles before it is recorded in the video-monitored restricted warehouse space. AfB has also been using Blancco's software for data destruction for years, for example, and can produce audit-ready deletion reports for companies.
