  1. The Hammer Data Destruction for the 21st Century

  2. What is the Hammer? The compact Hammer enables a “security erase” command capable of purging digital data on up to 4 hard drives simultaneously, or link with USB hubs to manage dozens of hard drives. The Hammer can automatically format drives after erasure and can be used to rollout a new operating system to multiple workstations. It provides an audit trail via non-volatile on-board RAM to track device activity for printing or storing.

  3. Why is End of Life Data Destruction Important? • It effects everyone! • According to 2007 Ponemon Study. • Cost Per Incident rose from $182 to $197 per record. • Average total per-incident cost in 2007 were $6.3 million. • Cost of Lost Business increased by 30%. • Do companies really pay these cost? • What is the cost to your reputation?

  4. What is “Security Erase”? • Is a destructive command that is embedded in the firmware of the hard disk drive. • Embedded in hard drives starting in 2002. • Assigns a hex value of “0” thus making the hard drive “null”. • Data is not recoverable by any means. • Hits hard drive sector by sector. • Is an atomic process and will not stop until completed. • Meets the NIST SP 800-88 “purge” standard for sanitizing digital media.

  5. Who developed “Security Erase”? • The NSA and the University of San Diego Magnetic Research Institute. • Dr. Gordon Hughes • Develop a means for certifiably sanitizing hard drives beyond forensic recovery while retaining the ability to re-use or safely transport for destruction. • Implemented by global hard drive manufacturers in 2002.

  6. How does “Security Erase” work in the Hammer? • The Hammer will activate the “Security Erase” command embedded in the firmware of the hard drive. • Starts at both ends of the sector and works toward the middle to maximize coverage. • Uses “Bang Disk” overwriting command if security erase command is not available. • Security Erase is not available to drives manufactured before 2002. • First assigns 125 bit code to hard drive at beginning of process. • Drive is locked down until security erase completes. • Drive is locked down if process is stopped before complete. • Only way to unlock drive is complete security erase process. • Security Erase is up to 18 times faster than software overwrite programs. • No sight license required.

  7. What comes with the Hammer? AC Power cord & transformer (1) Documentation/CPR Toolbox CD (1) The Hammer™ (1) SATA + Power Cables (2) HDD Power Cables (2) USB Cable (1) PATA Cables (2)

  8. Hammer Overview • Controlled by 5 buttons. • “White” Power Button. • 4 Navigation Buttons. • Using the 4 navigation buttons and the LCD screen, the user may traverse the menu structure to perform task. • Up • Down • Left • Right

  9. Hammer Overview • Side A • 1 PATA Interface. • 1 SATA Interface. • HDD Power. • Power Supply. • Side B • 1 PATA Interface. • 1 SATA Interface. • HDD Power. • 1 USB Connection. Hammer Side A Hammer Side B

  10. Hammer Overview • Hammer Basics • PATA drives must be set to “Master”. • Menu structure begins with seven top level menu items. • Start • Operations • Quick Lock • Scan for Drives • Identify Drive • Verify • Settings • Audit Trail • Device activity can be transferred to host PC via USB. • Labels can be printed through Bluetooth printer. • Can generate certificates with hard drive information.

  11. Hammer Interface • User Interface • “White” button turns power on the Hammer. • Main menu is presented. • User may use “Up” or “Down” navigation buttons to scroll through menu actions. • To Select desired action hit “Right” button. • “Left” button is used to cancel a selection or action, or to return to the previous menu. • Host Software • The Hammer may be connect via USB port to computer • CPR Toolbox software (included).

  14. Hammer Menu - Running Secure Erase (Default) PATA PATA SATA SATA

  15. Hammer Menu - Running Secure Erase • Hook up Drives • Power On • Hammer will scan for drives. • “Start” will show on screen when complete. • Displays “Start”. • Press “Right” button and “continue” will show on screen. • Displays “Continue” • To continue with default Erasure hit “Right” button. • Hammer will display “SE” with corresponding (< or >). • Example: • Hammer will estimate time to complete purging time. (As displayed above.) • Time is based upon last drive to complete erasure. • When Hammer completes process the display will change from SE to D. PATA PATA < SE ERASE SE> < SE 0018 SE> SATA SATA <D D > <D D >

  16. Hammer Menu - Label • Bluetooth Printer • After performing an action the optional Bluetooth printer will print a label. • Select Drive from Settings menu (if not scheduled under default) • Hammer will print following information. • Start Date and Time • Hammer Serial Number • Drive Model • Hard Drive Serial Number • Action Outcome • Security Erase: Passed • End Date and Time • Check Sum PATA PATA SATA SATA

  17. Hammer Menu - Summary • The Hammer • Will be the most versatile data destruction tool you will ever own. • Will erase data on hard drives at 4.0 Gigabytes' per minute. • Will erase data on hard drives up to 18 times faster than software. • Will erase 4 hard drives at one time. • Will clone hard drives for re-deployment. • Will lock down hard drives for transportation. • Will create audit trail to ensure security. • Will make you compliant with NIST SP 800-88. • Will make you compliant with Sarbanes Oxley, HIPAA, FACTA, Graham Leach-Bliley, FISMA, FERPA, RCRA • Will make our environment better because it is a “Green” solution. • Will save you money because you will not have to pay fines. • Will save your reputation.
