Enhanced Secure Erase Press Release

Aleratec Upgrades HDD Copy Cruiser High Speed WL Family of Duplicators/Sanitizers to Include Enhanced Secure Erase for SSDs

*The new product updates include sanitizing SSD drives that support Enhanced Secure Erase.

Los Angeles, CA, November 14th, 2017 - Aleratec, Inc. announced a highly anticipated Enhanced Secure Erase update to its family of HDD Copy Cruiser High- Speed WL Hard Disk Drive Duplicators/Sanitizers. The update is being offered with new purchases and for free to existing owners of the HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed WL family. Customers interested in the free upgrade may contact Aleratec support@aleratec.com or call  +1 (818) 678-0484. 
Enhanced Secure Erase is a must-have capability for anyone using solid state drives (SSD) that support this sanitization method. The typical lifespan for an SDD drive is about six years due to technology improvements, at which point the drive needs to be replaced and sanitized to prevent data recovery. Aleratec’s new Enhanced Secure Erase feature allows for complete SSD sanitization verified by a leader in forensic data recovery as being forensically unrecoverable, meaning highly sensitive data will never be compromised. This security solution is especially important for companies and contractors handling sensitive or classified materials as the end result meets the criteria set forth in NIST 800-88 Revision 1 guidelines.
“We’re thrilled to be able to provide this important upgrade, especially to our customers in the government and corporate sectors,” says Perry Solomon, Aleratec President and CEO. “Our popular WL family of Duplicators/Sanitizers earned a devoted following, and we’re happy to be able to offer this new feature at no cost to existing users as part of our long-term customer care.”
Aleratec’s Enhanced Secure Erase feature comes along with existing sanitization options for HDDs including Secure Erase, 1-Pass Overwrite, 3-Pass Overwrite, and DOD 7-Pass Overwrite function that has been independently third party tested as being forensically unrecoverable. All six of the Aleratec Copy Cruiser WL HDD models with Enhanced Secure Erase underwent third party testing by a leading forensic data recovery firm.
Features of the Copy Cruiser part numbers 350140, 350141, 350142, 350143 include the following:
  • Real-time progress monitoring and logging
  • LED indicators on each tray confirm successful completion of hard drives
  • Support HDDs, 2.5/3.5" SATA HDDs and SSDs, 3.5" IDE HDDs, and 2.5” IDE HDDs with optional adapters sold separately
  • Verify after all Erase and Overwrite functions
