Data Security Inc DF-4
The Data Security Inc DF-4 Disk Drive Mutilator is a Heavy Duty Hard Drive Destruction Device. Designed for ease-of-use, reliability and safety, the DF-4 provides excellent Throughput and Efficiency in a Hard Drive Destruction Device and is an economical alternative to Hard Drive Shredders for Commercial or Lower Level Central Government requirements.
The NSA/DoD and CESG requires Magnetic Media be Degaussed to sanitise information, they also highly recommend Hard Drives be Physically Destroyed prior to Disposal depending on the Security Level if the information. Some options for Destruction are better than others – Incinerating can release a harmful debris-filled exhaust fumes into the atmosphere whilst Bending, on the other hand, can offer Quick, Quiet and Clean Physical Destruction. Please note that Disk Drive Benders are suitable for Lower Level Security Requirement and Commercial Applications including Business Impact Level 1 and 2 (BIL). For Central Government Higher Security Level requirements Hard Drive Shredders are available for Business Impact Level (BIL) 3, 4, 5 and 6 – for further advice contact Don Ruffles Limited or visit www.ShreddingMachines.co.uk The DF-4 Mutilator will Bend, Shatter, Pierce and Crack any Hard Drive dropped inside, rendering it un-Bootable and un-Repairable. Working at a rapid speed of 1 drive every 2-4 seconds, the visual damage created by the DF-4 will appear as holes punched in the outer case then for an added measure, the drive is Folded which causes the inner fragile components of the Hard Drive like the Circuitry, Platters, and Connectors to become Fractured or Shattered.
The DF-4 uses Gravity to feed your Magnetic Recording Media between two rotating, Spring Loaded Deformation Wheels that first fold and then puncture the Hard Disk Drive Case. This mutilating action extends to the centre of the Platter Stack inside the Drive, shattering the Disk Platters, Circuit Board, Chips and Connectors. Once mutilated the Media slides out of the DF-4 through an Exit Chute directly into a Disposal Bin. There will be a slight mechanical hum to faint clicks when the media is processing. The DF-4 is very durable with its powerful Deformation Wheels able to resist Chipping and Dulling.
Wheels for the DF-4 are available as an optional extra.
