Digital, media and hard drive destruction

Digital, media and hard drive destruction in Australia




Hard drive destruction

The DocShop’s T-4 Degausser machine exceeds the data destruction requirements specified in NIST and in many legislative mandates such as FACTA, HIPAA, GLB, DPA etc. It destroys data on hard disk drives and other magnetic recording media.

This new Degausser has received NSA approval and complies with DoD requirements for destroying classified information on magnetic media. Government agencies within DoD, DHS and DOE and government contractors confidently use the T-4 to destroy all of their electronic data.
The T-4 Degausser meets compliance standards for government mandates that require complete elimination of sensitive information stored on magnetic media prior to re-use or disposal, including the following:
  • GLBA (Gramm-Leave-Bliley Act)
  • PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry) Data Security Standard
  • NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media Sanitisation: NIST 800-36, NIST 800-88
  • HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)
  • PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)
The T-4 Degausser offers patented new degaussing technology with NSA approval to provide the highest gauss rating on the market today at an Effective Magnetic Field (EMF) of 4 Tesla or 40,000 gauss field spread: a 20,000 Gauss positive field and 20,000 Gauss negative field. 

As the very high gauss rating is several times stronger than the read/write heads in a hard drive or tape drive, this degausser is more efficient and much faster than software-based programs. 

Since it does not rely on software, the T-4 also has the ability to erase failed or damaged hard drives and tapes completely and permanently, regardless of the operating system.

Manage a variety of media formats

The T-4 NSA and DoD Degausser will erase all hard drive and tape formats that fit in the 6” x 4.3” x 1” degaussing chamber.
