Verity Systems Hard Drive Degausser Awarded NSA Approval
Verity System's SDD Master has been tested and approved by the National Security Agency (NSA) to sanitize classified information from magnetic storage media, and now features on the NSA’s Evaluated Products List for Degaussers.
By: Verity Systems
The National Security Agency (NSA) has set out a policy for the disposal of magnetic storage devices such as hard drives. It is this standard that all US government agencies must adhere to and is recognised as the most effective and fool-proof way of disposing of hard drives effectively and securely. Security professionals need a guarantee that their data is completely erased and the SDD Master degausser delivers.
The SDD Master is simple and safe to operate. Lift the perspex lid, insert the hard drive, close the lid and press START. The entire cycle takes approximately 60 seconds. Data becomes permanently unrecoverable once exposed to the powerful gauss force in the device. The SDD-Master delivers a minimum magnetic field of 17,750 gauss, three times to the media throughout the automatic operation. This ensures that the SDD Master remains unrivalled by any other degausser on the market.
“If an organization is involved in managing highly sensitive or confidential information such as financial, medical, or personal information, they must be vigilant in how they deal with the disposal of such information”
The SDD Master is the ideal solution for industries which have a requirement for erasing and destroying data that is stored on 2.5” or 3.5” hard disk drives, removable disks or backup tapes. Typical markets with highly sensitive and confidential information include the financial, medical, education, government and legal arenas.
The SDD-Master is available from Verity Systems direct or from their network of distributors and resellers around the world.
