HDD Drive Demolisher Press Release

Aleratec Announces the HDD Drive Demolisher that Destroys 3.5in and 2.5in Hard Disk Drives

Aleratecís HDD Drive Demolisher permanently terminates digital footprints with a 4-ton hydraulic pump that renders data unreadable.

CHATSWORTH, CA Ė August 15, 2016 Ė Aleratec Inc. an American designer, developer and manufacturer of highly relevant technology products for todayís always on world, presents the HDD Drive Demolisher, a powerful defender against unauthorized data access and a crushing defeat for data thieves.

Equipped with a 4-ton hydraulic pump that provides enough force to bend and mutilate the platters of hard drives, Aleratecís HDD Drive Demolisher destroys up to two 3.5inch or 2.5inch hard disk drives at a time. DoD compliance guidelines often recommend physical destruction of media in addition to other measures. Aleratecís HDD Demolisher can help keep government agencies, financial institutions, and medical facilities in compliance by physically destroying hard drives regardless of the format or type, thereby rendering those drives inoperable.

"Having protocol in place for media destruction is critical for all organizations but particularly for government agencies and government contractors where compromised, classified information can cause irreparable damage," notes Perry Solomon, Aleratec President and CEO. "Our HDD Drive Demolisher is the second step of a two-step process to help ensure that sensitive data will not be public information."

For best results Aleratec recommends to sanitize your hard disk drives using an Aleratec HDD Duplicator/Sanitizer prior to physically destroying your hard disk drives using an Aleratec HDD Drive Demolisher.

Unlike conventional hard disk drive destruction devices that use a single puncture mechanism, Aleratecís HDD Drive Demolisher includes a solid steel attachment that can be used to mangle the chassis and deform the platter. The process takes less than one minute and is a fast, safe and cost-effective solution for the destruction of hard disk drives. No electrical power required, and other features include:

  • Safety-re-enforced chamber for easy removal of destroyed hard drives and debris
  • Sturdy steel construction
  • A compact design that fits on a table or desk

  • When used as part of an overall security strategy, Aleratecís HDD Drive Demolisher gives users added peace of mind that no data will be exposed or end up in the wrong hands.
