Without Degaussing, Data Devices Can Still Reveal Sensitive Data—Even After Being Shredded
Just 13% of the 50 million metric tons of e-waste produced last year was recycled, and the amount of e-waste we create is growing into
Let’s pretend that there’s nothing between you and your beach vacation other than one final work project – a mass purge of old electronics equipment.
Degaussing is the process of totally erasing data by reducing or eliminating an unwanted magnetic field (information) stored on tape and disk media. A degausser is a machine that changes the magnetic domain (where the data is stored) of magnetic data storage devices.
When the degausser is applied to magnetic domains the information is scrambled into random patterns, making the data stored in the magnetic domain unreadable. The correct use of a the appropriate degausser will ensure that information is no longer retrievable.
Securis provides both on-site and off-site hard drive, backup LTO and DLT tape degaussing services. Our NSA approved LM4 degausser is used for optimum data destruction. Our hard drive and tape degaussing service options are fully compliant with all National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication Series 800-88 and National Industrial Security Program (NISP) Operating Manual (DOD 5220.22-M). Our degausser is re-certified annually by the manufacturer
