SDD Master Hard Drive Degausser
Listed in the NSA/CSS Evaluated Product List. Accepted by the UK National Cyber Security Centre (Formally CESG) As meeting the highest level degaussing standard.
Purge classified information with this high-energy pulse degausser
The SDD Master is a high energy, hard drive eraser designed to offer complete and secure erasure of magnetic media, to the highest level, including perpendicular recording hard drives. The SDD Master is also capable of erasing data storage media including DLT, LTO, 8mm, DDS and more.
The SDD Master generates the strongest erasure field of any degausser on the market. Where security is of the utmost importance, users can quickly sanitize their media without the need for disassembly.
The SDD Master is a bench mounted, chamber degausser, making operation safe, effective and simple for anyone. Operators simply lift the perspex lid, insert the media into the caddie, close the lid and press the ‘Start’ button via the control panel or the remote control.
Media is transported into the degausser where the magnetic field is activated by a powerful pulse discharge. While inside the degausser, media is automatically rotated and a further two magnetic discharges are applied, ensuring complete erasure.
The entire process takes just 60 seconds. The processor controlled SDD Master continuously monitors the operation ensuring that the erasure cycle is completed. The operator is immediately alerted to any interruptions in the erasure cycle on the LCD control panel.
Secure & Safe Operation
With safety in mind and to meet the latest ICNIRP Magnetic Exposure Guidelines, the SDD Master can be operated remotely via the remote control.
Strict industry standards & government regulations are in place, that force organizations to mitigate the risk of unauthorized exposure of confidential corporate & government data. These regulations include HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act); FACTA (The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003); GLB (Gramm-Leach Bliley);Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOx); and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).
Security of data is also a legal requirement under the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998, ensuring the complete removal of all data from redundant equipment is essential to maintain the security and integrity of data. In addition, many standards insist that the process of data destruction is fully traceable. Using a degausser to sanitize media provides a fully auditable procedure.
Note: After degaussing, hard drives (and some cartridges) are not reusable
