Degaussing


Degaussing is the process of decreasing or eliminating a remnant magnetic field and will leaves the magnetic domains in random patterns with no preference to orientation, thereby rendering previous data unrecoverable. An increasing number of government regulations, industry standards, and internal risk mitigation policies require organizations to sanitize storage media prior to disposal or reuse. Though specific requirements vary, the goal is the same—to ensure the data contained on storage media cannot be recovered using any method. At SYH, we provide degaussing and physical destruction of hard drive to help you eliminate the risk of data theft and meet the standards that govern your organization’s operations.

Our degaussers eliminate all magnetically stored data on working and non-working hard drives and tapes in 1/10th of a second, rendering the media safe for disposal. Our degausser together with the tape and hard drive degaussing service option are fully compliant with National institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication Series 800-88, U.S. Department Of Defense (DoD) Standard 5220.22-M (Sanitization) and NSA/CSS Policy Statement 9-12, “NSA/CSS Storage Device Sanitization” and are re-verified annually by the manufacturer. Our degaussers are fast, clean and quiet. We also physically destroy hard drives and solid-state drives to prevent forensic recovery from solid-state chips on drives. Our physical destroyers are fast, quiet and designed for use inside an office environment.

SYH provides auditable proof of erasure and destruction. At the end of the job, our degaussing technician will give you a digital degaussing report including the type and serial number of the drive degaussed. Our team has been background checked, expertly trained to properly dispose of all data on hard drives and solid-state media, including flash, compact flash, and USB thumb drives. Our energy efficient equipment operates off a standard wall outlet, and also provides the most secure data elimination for a fraction of the cost of other methods.

On-Site Data Degaussing Service –Our mobile data destruction team brings degaussing and destruction to you. No break in the chain-of-custody. We ensure sensitive data doesn’t leave your building and fall into the wrong hands by rolling our portable equipment into your facility to the data.

Off-site Data Degaussing Service – Our destruction team will collect these sensitive data from your site, rest assure that all your media drive will be locked and sealed before we transport it to our premises. Our premises is under 24hr CCTV-surveillance and your data will be kept in a highly secured room, preventing exposing to the public.

MagWiper MW-25000X Degausser

The MagWiper MW-25000X Degausser uses magnetism to erase/destroy data, so it works with all magnetic-recording media, including hard disks, tapes and floppy disks. Instantly erases data regardless of OS, storage capacity, interface (IDE, SCSI) and also sanitizes damaged hard disks. The chamber is larger than in the earlier model, doubling operational efficiency when erasing data from 3.5-inch HDDs. Previously, it took about 34 minutes to erase 100 3.5-inch HDDs, but the MX-25000X can do this in about 17 minutes. A popular feature retained from the earlier model is the ability to completely erase data from two server HDDs simultaneously using a strong magnetic force without the need to remove the mounting brackets. Data erased with MagWiper products are removed entirely and are unrecoverable, very effective in preventing data leaks. Total data erasure is achieved in an instant regardless of storage capacity, facilitating rapid sanitization of a large number of hard drives.

MagWiper MW-15000X Degausser

The MagWiper MW-15000X Degausser uses magnetism to erase/destroy data, so it works with all magnetic-recording media, including hard disks, tapes and floppy disks. Instantly erases data regardless of OS, storage capacity, interface (IDE, SCSI) and also sanitizes damaged hard disks.The world’s first 10,000+ Oe high-power degausser with a quick 17-second charge. The compact body incorporates the latest magnetic tape erasure technology employing diagonal magnetization to improve the efficiency of data erasure relative to the magnetic field by 50%! Provides secure data erasure from hitherto difficult-to-sanitize perpendicular magnetic-recording hard disks as well as conventional horizontal-recording hard disks.

MW-1B Degausser (NSA Certified)

The MagWiper MW-1B Degausser uses magnetism to erase/destroy data, so it works with all magnetic-recording media, including hard disks, tapes and floppy disks. Instantly erases data regardless of OS, storage capacity, interface (IDE, SCSI) and also sanitizes damaged hard disks.The MagWiper MW-1B Degausser incorporates the latest technology and is the world’s most compact, lightweight and efficient instant degausser in its category. The MW-1B utilizes leading edge technology background in degaussing, data recovery and data processing to produce an approx. 20,000 gauss field in a patented erasure zone design. This enables characteristics and performance that are at the top level for NSA listed degaussers. The compact body incorporates the latest magnetic tape erasure technology employing diagonal magnetization to improve the efficiency of data erasure relative to the magnetic field by 50%! Provides secure data erasure from hitherto difficult-to-sanitize perpendicular magnetic-recording hard disks as well as conventional horizontal-recording hard disks.
