Press Release - 1:31 USB HDD Copy Tower SA
Aleratec Launches 1:31 USB HDD Copy Tower SA™ with Sanitization
Chatsworth, CA, June 26, 2014 Ė 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, is introducing a new stand-alone duplicator capable of cloning up to 31 USB flash drives or external 2.5-inch hard drives/SSD drives with USB.
The 1:31 USB HDD Copy Tower SA™ is an industrial strength duplicator that operates without the need of a computer and streamlines the cloning of multiple USB storage devices. IT professionals can quickly copy up to 31 USB flash drives, external 2.5-inch hard drives or SSD drives with functions that include copy or compare, copy system and data only, copy complete drive, and format FAT and FAT 32 file systems.
"This product is a direct result of customer feedback," says Perry Solomon, Aleratec President and CEO. "Customers clearly needed a flash drive duplicator that also worked with USB-connected 2.5" external hard drives and solid state drives, and they wanted sanitization capability for the 2.5" USB hard drives."
In addition to duplication, Aleratecís 1:31 USB HDD Copy Tower SA™ sanitizes 2.5" external hard drives with USB. The sanitization function removes all traces of information from 2.5" external hard drives, and users can choose from 1-Pass, 3-Pass or DoD 7-Pass Overwrite functions. Hard drives sanitized by Aleratecís 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 1:31 USB HDD Copy Tower 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 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
The 1:31 USB HDD Copy Tower SA™ is part of Aleratec's new series of USB HDD Copy Cruisers and Copy Towers.
