Aleratec Adds Sanitize Feature to its 1:1 HDD Cruiser Hard Drive Duplicator

Chatsworth, CA - March 30, 2010 - Aleratec Inc. announced today that its 1:1 HDD Cruiser hard disk drive duplicator is now capable of performing the same hard disk Sanitization features that are found in the company's higher-end models.

The Aleratec 1:1 HDD Cruiser is an affordable professional hard drive duplicator that can quickly create perfect clone hard drives, as well as give access to two hard drives through its USB 2.0 port. The new Sanitization features give users the additional power to securely decommission hard disk drives with a choice of three comprehensive sanitization algorithms: a one-pass overwrite, a three-pass overwrite with verify, or a powerful seven-pass overwrite as per the Department of Defense 5220.22-M recommendation. The unit is compatible with 3.5" internal SATA I/II hard disk drives and can accommodate 2.5" internal SATA I/II hard disk drives with optional adapters (P/N 350106), sold separately. Finally, the 1:1 HDD Cruiser features tool-less, easy-load hard drive bays and Non Scratch SATA connectors designed for greater than 50,000 swap cycles, minimizing worries about drive connection issues and damage to your hard disk drives.

"Organizations and individuals are getting serious about protecting their data by properly decommissioning their hard disk drives before disposing or reusing them," stated Perry Solomon, President and CEO. "In many situations, improper sanitization or disposal of hard drives can incur hefty fines and penalties for organizations and businesses. In response to our customers' needs, we have enhanced the 1:1 HDD Cruiser to include these important features at no extra cost! We will even give existing 1:1 HDD Cruiser owners the opportunity to benefit from this free enhancement."

This essential tool for building or upgrading computer systems is quick, easy and standalone, requiring no computer or extra software to run. This flexibility and control make the 1:1 HDD Cruiser the perfect tool for IT departments, businesses and government agencies in need of a reliable and complete solution for hard disk drive management.
