Hammer has been the de-facto leader in hardware based, secure data eradi-cation since it was developed in 2007. The ultimate PATA and SATA eradication tool has just become even more valuable. The Sledge Hammer, initially available for PATA and SATA drives, allows up to 8 drives to be subjected to the same rock-solid, NIST 800-88 compliant data eradication at one time. Up to 4 Sledge Hammers can be used with Hammer at one time.
Security Erase is a standard technology embedded in most ATA hard drives manufactured after 2001. This technique is considered equal to degaussing by NIST and because the drives can be reused has the added benefit of being not only cost-effective, but green. When Security Erase is implemented by Hammer, the hard drive is assigned a random password that locks the drive completely. It will not unlock until the Security Erase procedure is completed. When Security Erase is not suported, Hammer automatically uses an embedded version of CPR Tools’ BangDisk utility.
