How is the data on my devices erased?
The answer depends on the type equipment we are handling.
Degaussers for example we are able to erase because they generate a magnetic field that is so powerful that it permanently and completely removes the magnetic memory from the iron oxide which removes the data pattern on the device.
Depending on the type of equipment we are handling, different magnetic field strengths are required to completely destroy magnetic memory. Modern tapes and hard drives require a stronger magnetic strength to accurately destroy the data. It is our job to assess this and advise your accordingly.
Depending on the type of media your organization uses, we will use the appropriate degausser to safely and securely remove all the data from the device so that it can no longer be accessed.
Hard drives are not reusable after they have been degaussed.
