The 1:15 USB Flash Drive & 2.5" HDD/SSD Copy Tower from Aleratec offers a fast and reliable method of duplicating up to 15 flash drives or external 2.5" hard drives/SSDs with a USB connection. This compact, standalone duplicator and sanitizer does not require a computer to operate. Its dual compatibility allows you to simultaneously copy 15 USB 3.0 and 2.0 flash drives or external 2.5" USB hard disk drives/SSD drives.The duplicator can sanitize external 2.5" USB hard drives using 1-pass, 3-pass, and DoD 7-pass overwrite functions. All of the functions are controlled by an easy-to-read interface with backlit LCD display. Responsible organizations and individuals understand that sensitive, private data on their disposed or redeployed hard disk drives are vulnerable if those drives are not properly sanitized. The duplicator supports these efforts by offering independently verified overwrite sanitization that is "forensically unrecoverable", and meets the criteria set forth in the NIST 800-88 guidelines for media sanitization.
