Hard drive degaussing is a cost effective solution to destroy small quantities of hard drives or media tapes.
Hard drive degaussing exposes equipment to a powerful magnetic field to ensure removal of data from the media. This method is perfect for small and medium sized business that are looking for a budget friendly way to destroy old hard drives and media tapes.
Our certified technicians will come to your location with the Guardian Data Destruction NSA approved degaussing equipment. All hard drives or tapes will be scanned and degaussed at the client location, and a certificate of destruction will be provided. Don’t let old equipment stockpile – keep yourself and your customers out of risk by properly disposing of sensitive data.
Guardian has the equipment and expertise to meet all DoD, State, Federal, Financial, and Health Care regulations, mandates and security guidelines.
Third Party Forensic Audits
Guardian Data Destruction’s internal audit process requires an annual third party forensic audit of its disk sanitization process for effectiveness, thoroughness and graded to meet the DoD specs. The review includes an evaluation of Guardian’s data wiping technology and detailed analysis of numerous disk drives wiped using the technology.
Throughout our history all evaluations of our data destruction procedures and audits have met and confirmed compliance with two industry standards: United State Department of Defense 5220.22 and NIST 800-88, described below.
