    Product Description

    Hammer has been the de-facto leader in hardware based, secure data eradication since it was developed in 2007. The ultimate PATA and SATA eradication tool has just become even more valuable.

    Extended Capability

    Introducing Sledge Hammer™. Each Sledge Hammer™ allows up to 8 drives to be subjected to the same rock-solid, NIST 800-88 compliant data eradication at one time. Up to 4 Sledge Hammer™ devices can be used with Hammer at one time.

    Audit Trails

    All the great audit trail features which made Hammer™ a must-have for compliance are built-in to Sledge Hammer™

    Increase the value of your initial Hammer™ purchase

    Adding Sledge Hammer™ to your data eradication toolkit not only allows for far more drives to be eradicated at one time, it extends and increases the value of your initial Hammer™ investment. Because CPR Tools believes that you should be in control of how your device can best operate for your own needs, Hammer™ may be updated as many times as you like.

    Need to eradicate a few drives at once?

    Simple: Use the included CPR Flash™ utility to load Hammer™ firmware.

    Need to use one, two, three or four Sledge Hammer™ devices and work with up to thirty-two (32!!!) drives at once?

    Simple: Use the included CPR Flash™ utility to load Sledge Hammer Control firmware.

    The best part is that this can be done as often as needed - in the field. This ability alone arguably makes Hammer™ and Sledge Hammer™ the most versatile and robust, compliant data eradication tools available today at any price.

    Built to last

    Sledge Hammer™ is built to last. When we designed this ground breaking device, we made certain that we chose server class internal components. A great example is the internal 300W power supply. This component is capable of running 24/7 for months at a time without failure. Sledge Hammer™ is a work horse, meant to provide years of consistent, reliable performance.

    Mix and Match

    Connect All PATA, Mixed PATA/SATA, Sledge Hammers™etc… to Hammer™.

    That's up to 32 drives at once. Sledge Hammer™ incorporates all the functionality of Hammer™ with some new and exciting features, like the ability to HOT SWAP hard drives. When one drive is finished you can remove the drive and put another in its place and start purging the new drive right away!

    NIST Sanitization

    Recommendations The National Institute of Standards and Technology has established new standards for electronic media sanitization which ranks Security Erase at the highest security level without rendering the media unusable. With Hammer™, you can safely destroy data and re-deploy costly hardware. For more information on NIST Special Publication 800-00, visit

    Security Erase

    Security Erase is a standard technology embedded in most ATA hard drives manufactured after 2001. This technique is considered equivalent in security to degaussing by NIST and because the drives can be reused, this method has the added benefit of being not only cost-effective, but green!

    The CPR Tools Advantage

    When Security Erase is implemented by Hammer™/Sledge Hammer™, the hard drive is assigned a random password that locks the drive completely. It will not unlock until the Security Erase procedure is completed. When Security Erase is not supported, Hammer™/Sledge Hammer™ automatically uses an embedded version of CPR Tools' BangDisk™ utility to overwrite every sector on the attached drive.
