What is Hard Drive and Tape degaussing?
Degaussing is a pre-destruction degaussing process often used by the UK Governments and UK military forces to destroy data for good. It is the technical process of securely sanitising magnetic media from hard drives and tapes that contains sensitive information to render the data irretrievable and to become fully GDPR compliant.
Data thieves can sometimes recover and read digital data even after it’s been deleted or overwritten. Degaussing uses a powerful magnetic field to completely remove the data from tapes and hard drives so that it can never be read again.
Products recommended for this process are removable magnetic media such as hard drives, backup tapes and floppy disks.
We can carry out degaussing either at your business offices, with our mobile unit, or at our own secure premises on 117 Ormeau Road.
We use a machine that is approved by both NATO and the UK government to securely wipe your data. It also meets the standards set by both the US Department of Defence and the National Security Agency. We are in Northern Ireland but not it shows how save and secure this way is of destroying client and business data for good.
