Since hard drives and tapes use magnetic fields to store data, the only way to permanently remove the data is to eliminate the magnetic field through a process called degaussing. A degausser applies a powerful magnetic force to the media that absolutely removes all data and renders the media unusable.
On Line Support’s degaussing service meets the media clearing and sanitation standards set by the U.S Department of Defense as the only method fully approved to permanently remove sensitive information.
Our degaussing service includes:
Permanent erasure of all data from your media
Environmentally responsible disposal of your degaussed media
Media destruction report and Certificate of Media Degaussing for your compliance and audit records
