Designed to provide mid-size IT organizations with the power of Enterprise-level sanitization stations via its touchscreen interface, the Image MASSter WipePro X2 Hard Drive Eraser/Sanitizer from ICS features native support for SAS, SATA, USB 3.0, and USB 2.0 hard drives, as well as other drive interfaces through the use of optional adapters, such as IDE, micro SATA, eSATA, IDE notebook drives, ZIF drives, and flash media, while an internal PCIe expansion bus allows for compatibility with drives such as SCSI, Fibre Channel, FireWire, and more. This specific model has been built with a 3.5" cable-free drive caddy which can accommodate up to eight 3.5" drives. The Image MASSter WipePro X2 has also been built with scalability options and may be used with a separately sold Eight Drive Add-on Module, providing the capability to simultaneously wipe 16 x 3.5" drives, operates using an Intel Core i7 processor, and can sanitize drives at speeds ranging from 7-18 GB per minute.
In addition to the eight dedicated SAS/SATA ports, there is also one dedicated SATA drive port, one USB 3.0 port, five USB 2.0 ports, one eSATA port, and a Gigabit Ethernet port. When the Gigabit Ethernet port is connected to your network, users can remotely control and monitor anywhere from one to multiple units that are also connected to the network. Available sanitization modes for the Image MASSter WipePro X2 include WipeOut DoD, which meets U.S. Department of Defense specifications for wiping data, WipeOut Fast Option, which is not DoD-certified, but allows erasing in one pass, and Secure Erase, which uses the Secure Erase feature built into many of today's drives.
