Worried about your sensitive data on your hard drives? Get the Ensconce hard drives to kill your drive in case it gets stolen
This is where data security company Ensconce Data Technology and their “Dead on Demand” service comes in. Starting “early next year,” companies will be able to purchase drives from EDT that contain an acidic “chemical mist” that destroys the drive layer by layer should it be stolen.
Drives will reportedly cost anywhere between a whopping $2,500 to $9,000, but will supposedly all but prevent data theft by triggering themselves if the drive is removed or tampered with. The mist may also be triggered of the system containing the drive is removed from a specific GPS location, or even by changes in temperature. Worried customers can also trigger the destruction via a cell phone call.
