Data Elimination Just Got Faster

Garner Paces Hard Disk Drive Innovation with Release of HD-2XT Degausser

An 88% increase in degaussing speed without increasing product size, energy consumption, or pricing.

Roseville, CA – October 3, 2018 - Garner Products, Inc., the leader in data elimination and destruction, released an upgraded version of its trusted line of HD-2 degaussers.  The new HD-2XT with 10,000 Gauss provides complete data erasure in ~7 seconds. The HD-2XT, specifically for office and data center use, is designed to improve operator throughput and efficiency in today’s fast-paced data security industry. 

“At Garner, we focus on how we can help the data storage industry of today and tomorrow”, said Ron Stofan, President of Garner Products. “Our goal is to be a trusted partner in data elimination by developing products that help mitigate the risk of a data breach with non-working and decommissioned hard drives.”

The high-speed 10,000 gauss (1 Tesla) HD-2XT is designed to meet the degaussing needs of small businesses and government agencies at an economical price. At 34 pounds, the lightweight model also follows Garner’s mission of bringing data destruction directly to the data to help ensure compliance with current data protection regulations and policies, such as HIPAA, NIST, and GDPR.

“Regulations that have monetary fines for non-compliance, such as GDPR, are sure to become the norm as the risk and cost of data breaches continue to rise,” said Michael Harstrick, Chief Global Development Officer of Garner Products. “Data privacy and protection is a serious business that needs secure solutions like the HD-2XT.”

Some of the features of the new HD-2XT include:

  • Complete hard drive data erasure in ~7 seconds
  • Generates 10,000+ gauss (1 Tesla) magnetic field for complete erasure of hard drives and tape
  • Erases up to 1920 (1.8 in.); 960 (2.5 in.); and 240 (3.5 in.) hard drives per hour
