Hard Drive Degaussing & Tape Degausser
Garner's TS-1XT is the only degausser listed on the NSA Evaluated Products List for Top Secret Data equipped with IRONCLAD, a proof-of-erasure system that automatically generates an erasure report that includes an image of the hard drive for each hard drive as it is degaussed. With a 20,000 gauss field, the TS-1XT NSA EPL-listed degausser completely erases all data on hard drives and tapes in under 15 seconds.
Integrated Auditing System
Garner's exclusive IRONCLAD Erasure and Destruction Verification System automatically captures a JPG image of the hard drive immediately after it is degaussed and generates an exportable proof-of-destruction certificate for audit and archival purposes.
Note: Solid-state media cannot be degaussed. Physical destruction of the media with the Garner SSD-1 solid-state destroyer is recommended before the media leaves its secure environment.
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.

* All mounting hardware must be removed prior to degaussing.
Most hard drive erasure methods leave some or all of your data intact. Degaussing is different—and permanent.
