Aleratec Introduces 1:7 USB HDD Copy Cruiser SA™ with Sanitization
Chatsworth, CA, July 29, 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 1:7 USB HDD Copy Cruiser SA™, a stand-alone duplicator for fast and reliable duplication of USB flash drives or external 2.5-inch hard drives/SSD drives with USB.
A compact, time-saving tool for IT and other professionals who regularly clone USB storage devices, the 1:7 USB HDD Copy Cruiser SA™ makes perfect copies of USB flash drives or external 2.5-inch hard drives/SSD drives with USB and includes advanced functions such as copy or compare, copy system and data only, copy complete drive, and format FAT and FAT 32 file systems.
"Having heard our customers’ requests, we designed a new series with added versatility," says Perry Solomon, Aleratec President and CEO. “The USB HDD Copy Cruiser makes duplication fast and simple for both flash drives and USB-connected 2.5" external hard drives, and it even sanitizes the USB hard drives."
Aleratec’s 1:7 USB HDD Copy Cruiser SA™ includes sanitization functions that remove all traces of information from 2.5" external hard drives. 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 1:7 USB HDD Copy Cruiser 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 compact, 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
