Pretec announces a new SSD with ultra-fast self destruction mechanism for military and secret service use.

The patented Pretec self-destruction technology is invented to fully safeguard confidential data from being tampered through unauthorized access. When the flash storage device is requested to quickly erase all of its contents in an urgent situation, it typically takes more than 20 seconds to complete for the fastest flash disk available today. In military operation, many times there won’t be 20 seconds time for solders to erase all data inside the SSD, which allow enemies to potentially retrieve the confidential data easily once the SSD falls into hostile hands. Pretec’s self-destruction SSD takes only 0.1 second.

After the initiation of the self-destruction command, several layers of fast erase are kicked off till all data is destroyed. Such process of self-destructing mechanism cannot be aborted or stopped even if the storage device is removed.
Via Pretec.
