The 1250A provides a high-productivity, economical solution to this requirement. The 1250A is the ultimate declassifier for safe guarding optical media against data breaches and data loss.
Miami, FL (PRWEB) July 7, 2009
Proton Data Security is announcing the new Proton model 1250A, a security device that ensures all information on compact disks (CD, CD-RW, CD-R, CD-ROM) and optical disks (DVD) is destroyed and rendered useless in an environmentally responsible manner. This automatic declassifier is now available for immediate shipment from authorized Proton resellers.
Proton's patented 1250 series of products employs innovative "micro indentation" technology that mechanically penetrates compact and optical disks and stretches the media to destroy the focal plane and data. This process eliminates today's threat of an attacker reconstructing data on improperly disposed media that results when a paper shredder is used to shred disks.
"The commercial and government security market requires a device to automatically ensure that sensitive PII (Personal Identifiable Information), files, intellectual property, training materials and sensitive government data is destroyed." Said John Lobo, Proton CEO. "The 1250A provides a high-productivity, economical solution to this requirement. The 1250A is the ultimate declassifier for safe guarding optical media against data breaches and data loss."
The new 1250A incorporates an automatic feeder that reduces the amount of time needed to destroy large quantities of disks and eliminates the possibility of human error while loading discs. It automatically feeds 200 discs at a time to provide a 1,000 disk per hour throughput. The 1250 series appears on the NSA Evaluated Products List and complies with NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) guidelines for proper disposal of electronic media and also meets US Department of Defense destruction requirements.
Proton Data Security, a certified minority business enterprise, manufactures degaussers and declassification systems in the USA. Proton's mission is to produce and distribute data destruction products that provide commercial and government businesses with the ability to be compliant with numerous global legislative mandates and best practice data security standards, in an environmentally responsible manner.
