Aleratec Unveils a High-Speed Family of IDE/SATA Hard Disk Drive Duplicators and Sanitizers
Ranging from compact to high-capacity models, the HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA High-Speed family of duplicators/sanitizers offers data transfer speeds up to 120MB/s and supports both IDE and SATA hard drives.
Chatsworth, California — November 05, 2013 — Aleratec Inc., an award-winning digital duplication technology manufacturer with customers worldwide, unveiled the HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA High-Speed family of duplicators/sanitizers today. Four models in the series handle the needs of any size business or organization, and all units support both IDE and SATA hard drives, unlike many high-performance HDD duplicators.
The HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA High-Speed family allows IT professionals to perform sector-by-sector copies, including partition and boot sector information, from a single source hard disk. For large-scale operations, the family includes high capacity duplicators/sanitizers that can clone up to 24 or sanitize 25 hard disk drives at a time. The smallest model can duplicate up to five or sanitize up to six hard disk drives simultaneously and is ideal for organizations with fewer SATA or IDE hard drives to process on a regular basis.
“Many hard drives, both SATA and IDE, are being retired or reused every day and require sanitization,” says Perry Solomon, Aleratec President and CEO. “Our HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA High-Speed Family combines IDE and SATA compatibility with Certified Sanitization, so large and small organizations can retire or reuse their drives with confidence that sensitive information is permanently erased.”
All units in the HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed family incorporate Secure Erase technology, a National Institute of Standards and Technology 800-88 accepted technique for properly purging hard drives. Aleratec’s HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA High-Speed family also features “Certified Sanitization”, a credential given only to our products for which a leading forensic data recovery company has confirmed that all digital data stored on hard drives sanitized by the 7-pass overwrite of the device has been permanently destroyed and meets the criteria set forth in NIST 800-88.
Key features for the Aleratec HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA High-Speed Family of HDD Duplicators and Sanitizers include:
• Models for both large and smaller scale projects
• Up to 120 MB/s copy rates
• Third-party certified 7-Pass wipe sanitization function
• Secure Erase, 1-Pass or 3-Pass with Verify
• LED indicators on each tray confirms successful completion
• Supports 3.5” IDE HDDs and 3.5″/2.5″ SATA HDDs
• Supports 2.5″ IDE HDDs with optional Aleratec adapters (P/N 350116), not included
“Properly purging sensitive data is more important than ever to companies, government agencies and organizations,” concludes Solomon. “The HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA High-Speed family gives organizations peace of mind that their financial records, patient information, or other sensitive data will not wind up in the wrong hands.”
