Unedited press release follows:
Aleratec launches its latest industrial line of hard disk drive duplicators and sanitizers that boast copy speeds of up to 120 MB/s and a certified sanitization function while maintaining Aleratec reliability and versatility.
Chatsworth, California — June 27, 2013 — Aleratec Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of professional-grade duplicators for hard disk drives, USB flash drives and optical discs, introduced the next generation of HDD duplicators and sanitizers today. The HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed family of products is an industrial line of hard disk drive duplicators and sanitizers that features blazing hard disk copy rates of up to 120 MB per second, as well as the first-ever, third-party certified 7-pass sanitization function.
A leading provider of data recovery services has independently verified that the data on hard drives wiped by the 7-pass Overwrite function in these new models have been “permanently destroyed” and meet the criteria of NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) 800-88. Other options in hard disk drive sanitation that prevent any attempts to recover information from the drive include a one-pass wipe and a three-pass wipe with verify. Finally, the HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed line offers the fast and efficient Secure Erase, a NIST 800-88 accepted technique for purging hard drives.
Of course, Aleratec’s HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed models can sanitize multiple hard drives simultaneously, saving the valuable time of companies and IT professionals, especially on large, time-sensitive projects. Like duplication, sanitization is on the forefront of design at Aleratec, and the HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed incorporates the latest protocols and technologies for data protection. “Our development team loves to push the boundaries of high speed duplication, but sanitization is never neglected,” says Perry Solomon, Aleratec President and CEO. “We set the standard on strict protocols to ensure that all traces of information are completely erased.”
Other key features of the HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed line include:
• Hard disk drive bays that allow users to load and unload drives in seconds;
• Specially designed non-scratch SATA connectors rated to last more than 50,000 swap cycles; and
• Total processing control with Copy All Partitions, HDD Data Copy Only, Skip Errors and Compare.
In addition, the HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed line operates as a standalone device that does not require a computer for disk duplicating or sanitization. Ideally suited for manufacturers, IT departments, businesses, and government agencies, models in the HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed family are compatible with 3.5 inch SATA hard disk drives and solid state drives (SSDs), and can also accept 2.5 inch SATA drives when combined with Aleratec’s 2.5 inch SATA hard drive adapters (Aleratec part number 350106) that are available separately for purchase.
There are two models in this new industrial line:
1:5 HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed- 5 HDD duplicator and 6 HDD sanitizer
1:11 HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed – 11 HDD duplicator and 12 HDD sanitizer
