Destruction – The Only Way to Safely Dispose of Solid State Data-Containing Devices

Solid state data storage devices range from SSDs (Solid State Drives) to cell phones. This variety can make it seem hard to properly dispose of them all when it comes time to decommission them. Fortunately, there is no need for it to be difficult. Our Phiston MediaVise Compact V-Spike SSD Destroyer is made to permanently disable the electronic components of SSDs and other solid-state devices.

Physical Destruction

Our system doesn’t just fold SSDs in half or cause other minor damage. Instead, interlocking spears chew, crush, and mangle the entirety of the media. This alone physically destroys it enough to render it unreadable by normal means. However, this is just the first step that the SSD Destroyer takes to ensure that the data on your solid state device can never be read again.

Electrical Destruction

Physically mangling the device will thwart almost all read attempts, but we take things one step further just to be sure. As the device is being destroyed, the SSD Destroyer also sends crippling, pulsed jolts of electricity through the media. These fry the electrical components by overloading them. The end result is a completely destroyed data storage device.

Why Destroy Data So Thoroughly?

The short answer is to prevent snooping. Doctor’s offices, companies, and governmental agencies are among those who must have absolute data security. Yet, these groups also need to be able to throw away old computers, cell phones, tablets, external hard drives, laptops, and other such machines. The only way to do so – without leaving openings for security breaches – is to destroy data-containing components.

Thanks to our MediaVise Compact V-Spike SSD Destroyer, there is no need for sensitive devices to ever leave the confines of organization property before destruction. It is easy to set the Destroyer on a desk or table and run your devices through. By the time they reach the outdoor garbage bin, the devices will never function again.
