World leader in Data Erasure and Destruction

Degausser - SV91M

Government Security Approved Hard Drives & Backup Tapes Degausser

The SV91M NATO approved degausser is ideal for the security conscious, low volume operator who wants to have a professional, low budget solution to eliminate magnetic media security risks. This low noise, table mounted, manually operated degausser, takes as little as 12 seconds to completely erase a hard drive or cassette.  Suitable for erasing DLT, DAT, PC hard drives and other high coercivity tape the SV91M is particularly recommended for erasing defective or damaged drives where other types of erasing may not be effective.

NATO Approval

The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has approved the SV91 for security applications. The NATO stock numbers are as follows:

5836-99-591-3345 (50Hz)

5836-99-500-5299 (60Hz)

Regulatory Compliance

Strict industry standards & government regulations are in place that force organizations to mitigate the risk of unauthorized   exposure of confidential corporate & government data. These regulations include;

HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act)

FACTA (The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003)

GLB (Gramm-Leach Bliley)

Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOx)

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS)

NSA (National Security Agency)

 

A two step process has also been set out by the National Security Agency (NSA) and Central Security Service (CSS) for the disposal of magnetic storage devices, including hard drives. They recommend that hard drives are sanitized (erased) with a degausser prior to the physical destruction of the hard drive itself.

It is this standard that all government agencies must adhere to and is now recognized by most organizations as the most effective and fool-proof way of disposing of hard drives effectively and securely.

Security of data is also a legal requirement under the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998, ensuring the complete removal of all data from redundant equipment is essential to maintain the security and integrity of data. In addition, many standards insist that the process of data destruction is fully traceable. Using a degausser to sanitize media provides a fully auditable procedure.

 

With safety in mind and to meet the latest ICNIRP Magnetic Exposure Guidelines, the SV91M’s field is concentrated near the top operational surface where the media is degaussed.
