"TechTurn provides a true sustainable solution for our customers, helping them not only achieve their green IT initiatives by recycling toxic assets in a responsible manner, but often returning monies for used IT assets and maintaining their security posture by destroying or securely wiping the data on retired assets."

The three solutions launching today include; TechTurn Retirement Solution, Green IT Asset Retirement, and Secure IT Asset Retirement. These three solutions are now available through Symantec's third party price list, and provide the following customer benefits:

- TechTurn Retirement Solution - a certified plug in for Notification Server and soon to be available for Symantec Management Platform 7 (SMP), this software completely automates the end-of-life retirement process for Altiris customers providing up to $100 per IT Asset in cost savings through automated workflow.
- Green IT Asset Retirement - affordable "green" recycling solution that is in accordance with TechTurn's zero landfill policies, ideal for IT assets older than five years.
- Secure IT Asset Retirement -provides robust data sanitization, thorough reporting, PLUS maximum trade-in value paid for all assets. This offering is ideal for used IT assets between two and five years old.

Additionally, all three solutions include detailed, real-time reporting for the enterprise, available directly as well as through a customized web portal built for Symantec's customers.

"Customers purchasing our certified Retirement Solution, which seamlessly plugs into Notification Server, can expect automation savings of up to $100 per asset," boasts Jeff Zeigler, CEO at TechTurn. "In addition to these savings, we allow enterprises to forecast estimated recovery values through our "Blue Book" values for used IT assets. This planning step enables asset managers to understand the value in their used assets, and plan effectively through technology refreshes. What's more, we are talking about significant monies that could fund a lot of other services. We believe that our software, service and value recovery provide significant ROI to the enterprise."
