Media Degaussing - VS Datagone
The No 1 HDD and Backup Tape degaussing tool. Datagone provides the ability to destroy disks (also on-site if the customer wishes) at a speed of up to 200 disks per hour.
It produces a strong magnetic field and in less than a second it completely destroys data from hard drives and backup tapes. It is ideal for businesses where security is of utmost importance.
Alfanet's hard drive degaussing tools comply with EU and government compliance standards such as:
- PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry).
- NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology)
- NIST SP 800-36
- NIST SP 800-88
- HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)
- PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)
- GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
PD-4 physically destroys hard drives by bending, breaking, and distorting the hard drive and its internal components, including the data platters.
Using a robust crushing wedge, the PD-4 bends the data disks, preventing, with the destruction it causes, laboratory data recovery techniques. PD-4 also breaks the hard drive casing, PC board, and read-write heads. It is ideal for use after the previous technique (Degaussing) and ensures complete destruction of the hard drive.
PD-4 meets all requirements of California Senate Bill 1386, DOD Emergency Destruction Guidelines, GDPR, GLBA, HIPAA, NIST SP 800-88r1, NSA/CSS SDDM 9-12, PCI DSS 3.2 and PIPEDA
