Hard Drive Degausser & Tape Degausser
In just seconds, the HD-3XTL hard drive degausser with IRONCLAD verification completely erases all data on hard drives and tape while also verifying and documenting the erasure. As the media travels down the exit slide, Garner's exclusive IRONCLAD system automatically captures a JPG image of the media and generates a proof-of-erasure and destruction certificate for audit and archival purposes. The HD-3XTL's 10,000 gauss field with an oversized media slot will permanently erase all data on high-coercivity (magnetic) hard drives and tape up to 1.7" in height.
Garner's exclusive IRONCLAD Erasure and Destruction Verification System automatically captures a JPG image of the media immediately after it is degaussed and generates an exportable proof-of-destruction certificate for audit and archival purposes.
Overwriting is a method where a random pattern of usually "1" and "0" is written to every part of the drive, frequently three times, to obliterate the underlying data. The advantage of this method is the drive can be re-used. The disadvantages are: it takes a skilled operator to ensure the overwriting is done correctly; non-functioning sectors of the hard drive cannot be overwritten allowing data to remain on the drive; it takes a considerable amount of time-hours, and therefore electricity; and it is not regarded as failsafe, or permissible for the highest data security standards such as the NSA, CIA, or DoD.
Degaussing is the process of exposing the media to a strong magnetic field of sufficient strength to magnetically destroy the data. The advantages of degaussing are: a skilled operator is not required to operate a degausser; the magnetic field destroys all the data on the drive in approximately 1/10 of a second regardless of whether the drive is functioning or non-functioning. Degaussing is recognized by the NSA and DoD as an appropriate method of secure data destruction. The disadvantage of degaussing is the hard drive cannot be re-used.
After degaussing, the data on a degaussed hard drive simply no longer exists.
The HD-3XTL will help you satisfy the most stringent government and industry data security standards, including:
Hard drives erased with the HD-3XTL have been tested and verified by hard drive manufacturers, information recovery companies, and private forensic laboratories, which independently confirmed that no data was recoverable.
Garner Products, Inc., leads the data destruction industry in product safety by being the first and only U.S. hard drive degausser and destroyer manufacturer to earn certification of our products to UL, IEC, and CSA safety standards from a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL).
Our products are also independently tested for conformity to CE standards for safety and emissions for the European Union.
These U.S. and international certifications identify Garner’s products as safe to operate in data centers, hospitals, offices, and other sensitive environments around the world.
Garner’s products are certified to:
We are proud to be an eco-friendly manufacturer in California, the state that sets the standard for environmental protection. At every stage of the manufacturing process, from product design through manufacturing and shipping, we apply processes and use materials that minimize environmental impact.
For even greater destruction security add our NSA EPL-listed PD-5 Hard Drive and Solid-State Memory Destroyer that destroys magnetic, solid-state, solid-state hybrid, flash, and thumb drives.
