Unedited press release follows:
The stand-alone Copy Tower quickly duplicates up to 23 USB flash drives or external 2.5-inch hard drives/SSD drives with USB, and includes sanitization functions.
Chatsworth, CA — June 24, 2014 — Aleratec Inc., award-winning designer, developer, and manufacturer of Portable Device Management (PDM) charge/sync products for mobile devices and professional-grade duplicators for hard disk drives, solid state drives, USB flash drives, and Blu-ray/DVD/CD discs, introduces the 1:23 USB HDD Copy Tower SA™, a stand-alone duplicator for cloning up to 23 USB flash drives or external 2.5-inch hard drives/SSD drives with USB.
Part of a new family of stand-alone USB HDD duplicators, Aleratec’s 1:23 USB HDD Copy Tower SA™ dramatically reduces the time required to clone large quantities of USB storage devices and can copy USB flash drives, external 2.5-inch hard drives or SSD drives with USB. Advanced functions include copy or compare, copy system and data only, copy complete drive, and format FAT and FAT 32 file systems.
“Listening to our customers is a vital part of Aleratec’s product development process,” says Perry Solomon, Aleratec President and CEO. “There was clearly a need for a flash drive duplicator that would also work with 2.5-inch hard drives and solid state drives with USB, so our engineers got to work and designed a very versatile product line.”
In addition to duplication, Aleratec’s 1:23 USB HDD Copy Tower SA™ sanitizes 2.5” external hard drives with USB. The sanitization function removes all traces of information from 2.5” external hard drives, and users can choose from 1-Pass, 3-Pass or DoD 7-Pass Overwrite functions. Hard drives sanitized by Aleratec’s 7-Pass wipe have been verified by a leader in forensic data recovery as being “forensically unrecoverable” and meeting the criteria set forth in NIST 800-88 guidelines for media sanitization.
The 1:23 USB HDD Copy Tower SA™ supports most popular brands of USB 1.1, 2.0 and 3.0 flash drives and external 2.5-inch USB HDDs/SSDs, and includes:
• A stand-alone design that does not require a computer
• An easy-to-read, intuitive interface with back-lighted LCD display
• Certified Sanitization on the DOD 7-Pass overwrite for USB-connected 2.5” external hard drives
The 1:23 USB HDD Copy Tower SA™ is part of Aleratec’s new series of USB HDD Copy Cruisers and Copy Towers.
