LINCOLN, NE. Jan. 18, 2021 – In order to protect private information, many regulations and information security experts recommend physically destroying data at the end of its useful life.  Data is stored in solid state memory such as solid state drives, smart phones, memory cards and USB drives. Data Security, Inc., an i-SIGMA Associate member and a manufacturer of data destruction devices, released its latest product, the SS16-A ™ Solid State Shredder, to help people quickly and safely shred their data on solid state memory.

The SS16-A™ shreds a variety of solid state media within 2-5 seconds to particles of 16mm or less.  Other features of the SS16-A™ include a push-button operation, a HEPA and carbon air filtration system and safety reverse controls.

Its small but mighty, with speed and excellent safety features, making it one of a kind in the industry.”
