NIST 800-88

Once every asset to be decommissioned has been identified, Teraware goes to work. Teraware’s agent-based architecture scales to any size job; whether it’s one drive or 100,000, Teraware erases all drives concurrently, minimizing your data exposure risk window. NIST 800-88 is descriptive with regard to media types, chain of custody, methods of destruction and reporting. ITRenew follows NIST 800-88 and goes a step further, exceeding all industry standards and compliance.

ADISA Certified Data Sanitization

The Asset Disposal & Information Security Alliance (ADISA) offers accreditation to companies that maintain the highest standards in IT asset disposal and data sanitization. Only nine companies worldwide are expected to achieve ADISA data sanitization accreditation for both HDDs and SSDs in 2020.

  • Passed ADISA Threat Matrix Level 2: the only software to have done so for multiple types of SSDs and HDDs (incl. SATA-HDD, SAS-HDD, SATA-SSD, SAS-SSD, FC-SSD, and NVMe-SSD)
  • Only sanitization platform to pass ADISA accreditation using the latest drive technologies (NVMe) and capacities (10TB+).
  • 17 Certificates for Forensic Data Erasure of SSDs and HDDs

Vertical industry standards, met or exceeded

Protecting sensitive data is critical, whether that data pertains to personal health, financial records or simply the guaranteed privacy of customers or clients. Our reporting standards and are derived from different global audit stipulations and compliance regulations; we meet or exceed best practices for handling patient data, cardholder data and much more.

Healthcare

Healthcare compliant, including meeting requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

Financial Services

Financial services-compliant, including meeting Payment Card Industry (PCI) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) standards

Secure, specialized processing

Your industry or company may have its own security standards and compliance. We are confident we meet or exceed them.

A fully traceable audit trail

We rigorously track each serialized asset from wiping to final disposition, giving you a fully traceable audit trail. Nothing falls through the cracks – ever.

Asset discovery

All assets to be decommissioned are inventoried. We cross-reference your asset list with our findings down to the component level, enumerating CPUs, DIMMs, controllers, disks and processing attributes. Drives and components are parented to servers and racks, so we always know their provenance. This data establishes a baseline for your audit trail.

Drives wiped

Teraware fully wipes all SSD and HDD drives simultaneously, at the rate of 1TB every 2.5 hours. More than 98% of drives are fully wiped (well above industry standards); 100% of drives are securely decommissioned. An unlimited number of drives can be wiped in only one to two days.

Certificates issued

A Certificate of Sanitization is issued for each wiped drive. Failed drives are destroyed at your facility, if that’s your company policy, or removed to our facility for final disposition. Certificates of Destruction are issued only when drives are shredded. We proudly stand behind our certifications.

Report generated

Teraware generates a comprehensive report detailing all assets decommissioned. Every single drive is accounted for, including extra or non-conforming disks. Reporting includes attributes such as Rack ID/Rack Asset Tag, Asset Serial Number/Asset Tag, Installed Rack Unit and Server Model.

Drives Transported

After wiping, assets are securely transported to an ITRenew facility for processing. Full reconciliation of each serialized asset occurs before any asset leaves your facility. They are loaded into securely sealed trucks with GPS tracking, so you know where they are at all times.

RECONCILIATION

Upon arrival at an ITRenew facility, a cross-check occurs, reconciling all shipped assets against our baseline report. Assets slated for destruction at our facility are shredded and Certificates of Destruction issued.

RENEWAL

Assets slated for renewal – through reuse at another of your company’s facilities, remarketing in secondary channels, or breaking down for parts or recycling – are reengineered or disassembled.

AUDIT COMPLIANCE

Every component of every asset is identified and tracked throughout its lifecycle. If and when auditors spot-check you, this step-by-step reporting gives you a complete paper trail detailing your end-to-end chain of custody.
