The Proton PDS-75 is a manual compact and portable hard drive destruction unit listed on the NSA/CSS Evaluated product list for 1 inch, .65 inch, 1.65 inch, and Laptop hard drive destruction. The PDS-100 is used by the NSA and DoD for destroying internal hard drives prior to disposal.
NOTE: For proper hard drive destruction, always us a hard drive degausser to remove data from the drive prior to using a drive destruction device. Degaussing guarantees data cannot be recovered from the small pieces of disk remaining after destruction because all stored data is erased. A degausser magnetically deletes stored data permanently from the storage device so when used in conjunction with a hard drive shredder, bender, or punch, the data is deleted and unrecoverable.
The PDS-75 is a manual hard drive bender that quickly destroys hard drives in less than 8 seconds. Insert the properly degaussed hard drive into the feed opening and turn the large handle to begin driving the blade into the drive body bending the housing and internal disk.
Destroys 450 drives per hour
