Proteus Kit (LR)

Proteus is the 2nd generation HDD tester designed and operated by Teleplan. Versatile in its functionality Proteus can perform a number of functions in addition to traditional testing.

Available in 4, 8 and 32 cell variances, Proteus’s flexibility allows it to be adapted for all consumer requirements. It’s ease of use and simple connection allows Proteus to be operated with minimal training and supervision.

Each test cell within Proteus runs independently of the others maximising test capabilities and allowing multiple tests to run concurrently. With multiple reporting options available, data can be provided in the form of a certificate or via online portal as part of a validation process and along with other data collection options available.

Proteus can be integrated to be used as part of a wider high volume asset recovery or data deletion solution. Its data wipe standard level complies with Infosec Standard 5 and can be configured to accomodate other recognised international standards.
