MediaVise® Compact – SSD Destroyer

The Phiston MediaVise Compact SSD Destroyer (MVC-SSD) is a patented RCMP evaluated high security solid-state drive and digital media destroyer.


The MVC-SSD also destroys and renders inoperable other miniaturized electronic devices and data storage media including USBs, PDAs, cell/smart phones and circuit boards. It will also crush and disable a limited number of HDDs.

Built on the same robust platform as the hugely successful NSA-evaluated MediaVise Compact HDD Destroyer, the MediaVise Compact SSD Destroyeris the latest product in Phiston’s arsenal of remarkably powerful and compact digital media destroyers.

Complete Media and Data Destruction

The Phiston MVC-SSD doesn’t simply fold a hard drive, or punch a few holes in it. The MVC-SSDspecially designed plates with interlocking pyramidal spears chew, crush and demolish every square inch of the SSD, rendering all data storage surfaces destroyed.

Secure SSD Destruction Where You Need It

The Phiston MVC-SSD has a footprint of only 22.5” x 9.75”, and stands16” tall. It was designed for desk- and table-top deployment and to be unobtrusive, making it ideal for space-limited offices and server rooms.

Your storage media never have to leave your secure server room or facilities for destruction, eliminating chain-of-custody and other security risks.

MediaVise Compact SSD with Debris Chute Installed.

Crushed debris is ejected via the optional chute accessory, directly into a garbage container.

• Approved by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) for Secure Destruction of SSDs and Miniaturized Electronic Devices including USBs, PDAs and cell/smart phones containing or having processed:

a) Protected A and B, and Confidential Information. Prior overwriting or degaussing is recommended but not required.

b) Secret and Protected C information; provided information was encrypted or first cleared, overwritten or degaussed.
• Approved by the RCMP for Interim Destruction pending further Approved Destruction. The MV-SSD renders HDDs, SSDs and Miniaturized Electronic Devices unplayable by ordinary means and is therefore approved as a risk mitigation measure for media in transit to, or awaiting additional destruction required for medium and confidentiality levels of information.

  • The MVC-SSD utilizes Phiston's proprietary MediaVise hydraulic crushing platform fitted with a pair of patented crushing plates with arrays of 187 interlocking razor sharp hardened steel teeth (see below).
  • The crusher delivers 20 tons (40,000 lbs) of destructive forces with up to 187 piercings of the SSD media. The fragile ceramic memory chips and controller are punctured, crushed and serrated on both sides in less than 30 seconds.
  • Built-in Worker and Environmental Health and Safety features:
  • Fully automated, hands-off operation for user safety
  • Debris accumulates in a collection bin until safely disposed of
  • HEPA Filtration system traps any potentially harmful airborne particulates from the crushing and shattering of circuit boards, electronic components and silicon-based integrated circuit chips
  • RFI and EMI Suppression to minimize interference with other electronic equipment in the vicinity
  • Noise suppression to 65db which is much quieter than the 85db threshold acceptable to OSHA for workplace
