Our Tear-A-Byte® is the Future-Proof 100% Compliant Solution for Data Destruction in Enterprise and Datacenter Environments

The Tear-A-Byte data destruction process provides comprehensive protection:
  • It uses a multi-layered defense to counter collusion and satisfies the data destruction component of the required cybersecurity framework
  • Employs smart RFID technology for full and perpetual tracking of assets via a cloud based secure customer portal provides on-demand reports (full audit trail, certificates of destruction and environmental reports)
  • Operates entirely onsite within the 'four walls' of a facility and the data never leave the organization's control
  • Two system engineers sanitize the data and verify it has been destroyed
  • Employs a secure cloud-based Customer Inventory Management Portal as a robust global inventory and asset tracking system
  • The e-waste from destroyed data bearing devices is recycled at only ISO 14001 recycling facilities and follows a strict Zero Landfill Policy
  • The process is supported by a foundation of FIVE ISOs (27001, 31000, 9001, 14001, 45001 & NIST 800-171
TechR2 ensures that the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) and the organization's legal compliance and compliance executives are enforcing safeguard rules that destroy data bearing devices within the four walls of the datacenter and enterprise facility. Therefore, the organizations never loses control of the data and never raises the levels of risk when data is in transit. The TechR2 Tear-A-Byte method was recognized to surpass all other data destruction solutions when TechR2 was awarded the data destruction method patent by the USPTO in 2016. When applied it
the risk management of an organization's handling of loose failed and decommissioned data bearing devices.
It also creates a uniform, standardized digital process that does not change from facility to facility. It removes non-compliant third-party vendors from transporting PHI on failed and decommissioned equipment.
