Degaussing: A Method For Secure Data Disposal

Data Sanitization

Data disposal in now a necessity for many Corporates, Government Organizations, PSU’s, Banking and Financial Institutions. The challenge is to rely on a partner having world’s best in class tools and technologies along with Information Security Management System in place to systematically manage sensitive data.  Data security compliances and regulations has been designed to avoid any type of data leakage via any medium and EUGDPR has been introduced recently into the market to keep the data secure and confidential with updated guidelines.

Degaussing is a method to eliminate data from magnetic media magnetically. A very strong magnetic field is applied to media for data elimination by demagnetization of the digital storage media (Magnetic Media). ‘Gauss’ is a unit of magnetism was named after Carl Friedrich Gauss. As per the guidelines of various compliances degaussing/demagnetizing has been recommended safest way to eliminate data.

“To ensure that no one could ever recover data from a disk, you need to degauss or destroy it or keep it in a secure location until the disk is needed again.”

At Techchef, we use best data eliminator tool that provides high power magnetic erasure for hard drive and other magnetic media. It is compact, easy to use onsite and will permanently remove all data from the media in only 1 minute. Our degausser generates 10000+ gauss field for permanent erasure of data. The degaussed data is gone forever and cannot be recovered. Easy to set up and operate, just turn it on, insert the hard drive and in one minute later you have a hard drive that has been completely erased. The use of SCAN-1 destruction report generates automated log report of media serial numbers as you degauss the drive. The HD-2 is engineered to be fast & quiet and provides complete erasure of all hard drives/tapes and degaussing is 90% more energy efficient than overwriting. Our degaussing machines are compact, office friendly and easy to deploy. We always recommend and proved onsite degaussing service in your premises.

Our degaussing services would help to meet below standards for erasure of sensitive data.
