The PD-4 is designed to physically destroy hard drives in order to prevent persons from being able to spin the hard drive up to retrieve data. The PD-4 will automatically bend, break and mangle the hard drive including the data platters - where the data is stored. Once destroyed, the data will no longer be retrievable.The PD-4 is best utilized as the last step in your data security procedures. All other methods of data erasure leave the outside appearance of hard drives unchanged. It is impossible for the operator to distinguish a working hard drive from a non-working drive. The PD-4 will physically destroy as well as identify the hard drive as being ready for disposal. No hard drive should be disposed of without first being physically destroyed.The PD-4 works as a stand-alone unit or in conjunction with our HD-3WXL hard drive degausser. These degaussers will assure the complete erasure and demagnetization of the information prior to destruction by the PD-4. The PD-4 is the ultimate in data security.The PD-4 will automatically destroy all formats and sizes of hard drives including Network SCSI and IDE Drives up to 2 in height. The PD-4 doesn't rely on software, therefore it will destroy all working and non-working hard drives in a matter of seconds. A simple push of a button will ensure complete destruction and ensure your data will be securely destroyed and un-retrievable.The PD-4 is best utilized as the last step in your data security procedures. All other methods of data erasure leave the outside appearance of hard drives unchanged. It is impossible for the operator to distinguish a working hard drive from a non-working drive. The PD-4 will physically destroy as well as identify the hard drive as being ready for disposal. No hard drive should be disposed of without first being physically destroyed.The PD-4 has been updated with an auto height detection system. This allows the operator to save precious time when destroying today's low profile or 1 hard drives, laptop hard drives or multiple hard drives in a single sequence. Auto sensors also will allow the operator to destroy the taller half-height and network drives up to 2 in height with no additional user input. It only takes 20 seconds for the first drive to be destroyed, therefore meeting the NSA's Emergency Destruction guidelines.To enhance the PD-4's compact size, we offer an optional carrying case on wheels. This allows the PD-4 to be easily transported to the secure location of the hard drive rather than jeopardize the data during transportation.Government Mandates:The PD-4 will assist you in meeting compliance standards for government mandates requiring the destruction of sensitive information stored on magnetic media prior to disposal or recycling including:PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry) Data Security StandardNIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media SanitizationNIST SP 800-36NIST SP 800-88HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)California Senate Bill 1386
