External Hard Drive with Emergency Destruct Model AA83118

The External Hard Drive with Emergency Destruct is a portable device housing a 3.5” hard drive for storing data and a degausser (eraser) for permanently destroying the hard drive on command (in emergency situations) in less then 30 seconds. It combines data storage and security into a single package. It is small enough to be locked in a safe when not in use, and the USB connection allows for “plug-and-play” operation. When the need arises and you must permanently destroy all data on the hard drive, flip the “ARM” switch and push the “TRIGGER” button. The drive will be rendered useless in seconds. Furthermore, the External Hard Drive with Emergency Destruct is network-capable to allow for remote destruction. This product is reusable – simply replace the hard drive.

The External Hard Drive with Emergency Destruct is designed by former US Air Force and National Security Agency (NSA) personnel to be an emergency data destruction tool for use in embassies, overseas government agencies, military situations, secure facilities, high value asset aircraft, mobile command posts, and other sensitive areas where data security is a top priority. This product recently won the best of FOSE award 2007 for best security product. FOSE is the nation's leading showcase for the latest information technology innovations for government.

Because the External Hard Drive with Emergency Destruct is used on your desktop just like any external USB hard drive, all sensitive data is stored on the internal drive of the AA83118. For added security, at the end of the day, remove the drive and lock it in your safe. Designed to eliminate complicated data destruction procedures, the External Hard Drive with Emergency Destruct simplifies the data destruction process. When the enemy is at the gates, the External Hard Drive with Emergency Destruct provides a fast, safe and simple method for near instantaneous data destruction.
