Degaussing is the most cost-efficient method of destroying 100% of data on hard disk drives (HDD). Hard drives have platters or disks which are “written” on magnetically. To erase these magnetic impressions on the platters, a powerful magnetic field must be applied to the hard drive.
e-End is certified to sanitize all magnetic storage media by degaussing, using one of our two degaussers that are listed on the NSA Evaluated Product List (EPL) approved equipment and process. e-End provides service for degaussing hard drives that is trusted by government, medical, financial, commercial and educational organizations.
We have the capability to position our destruction vehicles up to the client’s loading dock or building and conduct degaussing and shredding operations upon arrival. Our mobile auxiliary power unit provides the required power to our mobile destruction equipment so no power is required from the client’s facility.
Types of magnetic storage media:
Open reel tapes
Hard Disk Drives
Access cards (with magnetic strip)
SSDs (SATA, PCI-e & NVMe)
In the rapid growth of information technology, solid state drives (SSDs) are becoming increasingly popular in modern businesses. SSDs need to be sanitized as well, however they’re not the same as your standard HDD. If you’re looking to take care of your SATA, PCI-e or NVMe SSDs, degaussing does not work on those. SSDs do not store data magnetically and therefore they are not able to be securely sanitized via degaussing methods. We do have a solutions for this, however. Being one of the first NAID AAA companies to be certified in SSD wiping, we guarantee safe eradication of these devices through wiping, shredding and incineration – all backed by our NAID AAA certifcation.
