CPR ToolsCPR Tools Inc. was formed in 1995 and is all about data. CPR Tools performs advanced data recovery services on all types of storage media, including hard drives, phones, tablets, flash drives and more. It has recovered data from shredded media, fire damaged media, water damaged media, and USB drives that your son knocked off the table while you were working!

The company provides ‘End of Life’ data eradication services on storage media, because who better to get rid of your data than the folks that are the best at getting it back! All of its eradication services meet or exceed government standards, including HIPAA, NIST, DoD, FACTA, and others.

CPR Tools protects your valuable data by providing cybersecurity services, including Penetration Testing, Vulnerability Assessments, Phishing Assessments, and end user cybersecurity training such as Insider Threat, Dark Web Basics, Social Engineering, and more.

CPR Tools also designs and build products that allow you to perform data recovery, eradication, and of course cyber protection. Unlike its competitors, CPR Tools has always built its products here in the USA and all of its hardware products come with a five year warranty!

“We were looking to expand our product reach overseas, and so we called the SBDC. They got back to us quickly and offered a list of classes that we were able to take to bring us up to speed on the different exporting laws and which countries would be the best markets for our services. The SBDC even created a large export marketing plan which we still have and use today. As a small company, the laws, guidelines, and honestly the lack of knowledge, would have been too much to overcome, but the SBDC folks made it easy!” — John Benkert, CEO, CPR Tools
