SSD secure data destruction in less than two seconds

"Mission Impossible" TV show (1966-1973) operatives received their government-centric assignments via a cassette tape recorder embedded with a recorded voice that - after revealing the government top-secret assignment - concluded with the always-true prediction of ?This tape will self-destruct in 5 seconds.?

“Mission Impossible” TV show (1966-1973) operatives received their government-centric assignments via a cassette tape recorder embedded with a recorded voice that – after revealing the government top-secret assignment – concluded with the always-true prediction of “This tape will self-destruct in 5 seconds.” Though military and government mission-recording technologies have certainly advanced since then, Emphase’s MIL-SPEC S5 Series SSD has a similar security capability (but without the automatic smoke): data destruction, fast and secure erasure, and data write protection ensuring data elimination in less than 2 seconds … and so much more. Providing up to 90 MBps write and 170 MBps read speeds, the MIL-SPEC S5 Series SSD comes in capacities of 16 to 128 GB. (256 and 512 GB iterations are being developed.) Meeting MIL-STD-810F environmentals for thermal shock (-40 °C ~ +85 °C, 10 cycles), drop (Transit Drop Specification), and vibration (20 g), the SSD boasts an altitude capacity of 80,000 feet and meets NSA 130-2 specification requirements. With all those credentials, it’s not surprising that the SSD is able to call military and defense servers, combat vessels, rugged laptops or tablet PCs, and data and tactical systems “home.”
