Just one hard drive can contain hundreds of thousands of files. When a digital file is “deleted” from a computer, the information actually remains on the drive, as do “deleted” e-mail messages and records of all online activity. Even reformatting or overwriting may not be enough to prevent confidential/proprietary/sensitive data from being recovered by a determined individual.
Hard drives from discarded computers, printers and copiers pose a substantial risk to a company’s data security. Many people are unaware the information stored on them can be easily reconstructed using freeware readily available on the Internet. Until now the machines needed to effectively neutralize these drives were slow, cumbersome and expensive.
Shredder Technology: Hard Drive Punch
For all you computer geeks out there, the model name alone is pretty cool (0101)….binary code and all that. No bigger than a standard centralized office shredder, the 0101 HDP hard drive punch provides effective drive destruction at an economical cost.
At the push of a button, it punches a hole completely through the hard drive, exerting between 2.5 and 3 tons of force thus rendering it unreadable. Once the drive is pierced, the drive is dropped into a bin for later disposal.
The destroyed drive then drops down into a storage bin for disposal. The punch drives through either a 2.5″ or 3.5″ hard drive and can be used on standard size hard drives for personal computers, laptops, notebooks, printers, copiers, PDA’s and cell phones.
