Onsite degaussing

Onsite degaussing

Degaussing is an NSA-approved method of data destruction. It’s simply a demagnetizing process that erases hard drives, disks, reels, cassettes and magnetic tape.

For Department of Defense (DOD) classified data, drives must be degaussed prior to shredding.

Why degauss?

Hard drive degaussing is a cost effective method of data destruction. The process is complete, quick, silent and clean and meets NSA and CESG requirements for sanitization of classified information.

Magnetic storage media can be recycled but not reused once degaussed.
