The DataGone is a fully automatic, table top mounted degausser.  Sliding the media into the aperture on the left hand side of the unit automatically starts the degauss cycle. When complete, the media is released and exits from the DataGone on the right hand side. The entire procedure takes just 8 seconds from start to finish.

Throughout the degauss cycle, the on-board processor monitors the procedure and progress messages are displayed on the LCD panel. If the degauss cycle is interrupted for any reason such as power loss or any fault condition, the media is retained in the DataGone and the operator is immediately alerted to the interruption on the LCD panel. When security is of the upmost importance the DataGone’s failsafe operation should be your degausser of choice.

Data Destruction Auditor: Our unique Data Destruction Auditor solution records all essential information of the degaussing/sanitization process. Reports can be generated detailing key information such as media serial numbers, degauss force, date and time of erasure and operator details and used as evidence of degaussing. Data Destruction Auditor provides a complete sanitization/erasure audit trail. Note: Data Destruction Auditor must be fitted at time of ordering. Click here for more information

Transportation Case: An optional heavy-duty transportation case with wheels is available for the DataGone, enabling you to safely transfer your degausser by road or air, ideal if you have a requirement to erase media at multiple locations. Click here for more information.
