Data destruction is an essential component in any security conscious organisation to protect business and personal data from outside interests. New GDPR legislation has increased pressure to properly dispose of this data meaning companies are held responsible for any data that is recorded. This has increased the need for a mobile, in-house unit that can be trusted to dispose of confidential data.
Datarch has partnered with Proton, an industry-leader with NSA listed products, to offer the best in in-house data destruction.
Data destruction takes three forms; Degaussers, Shredders, and Destroyers, the utility and effectiveness of which can be tailored to your business size and destruction requirements.
Degaussers destroy data using an electro-magnetic process called “degaussing”. In essence a surge of electricity disrupts and eliminates magnetic fields stored on tape and disk data storage devices. The process changes the magnetic domain where data is stored, and this shift in domain makes data unreadable and unable to be recovered.
Our line of degaussers ensure that sensitive data is erased in accordance with recognized standards (NIST, HIPAA, FACTA, PCI DSS, GLBA, PIPEDA, IRS, GDPR, DoD, etc.) and is forensically unrecoverable.
All of our degaussers are designed to operate in high-security data center environments and are manufactured in ISO 9001 certified facilities. Most of our equipment has been tested and approved by the National Security Agency (NSA) and U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) for sanitizing Top Secret / Classified data.
Our patented technologies and understanding of the constantly changing data security industry allows us to provide customers with the latest solutions for permanently erasing data.
As can be seen here, we have a number of degaussing machines available and these differ in terms of the strength, capabilities and operational features offered.
Our team will be delighted help you to select the most appropriate product for your particular needs.
Shredders are used for data destruction on media for which degaussing is not suitable.
The PDS-88 Solid State™ Media Shredder is the perfect combination of office shredder, disintegrator and industrial shredder. It has the capability to shred several types of media, including solid state drives, CDs/DVDs, USB drives and more. Plus, it’s packed nicely into an office shredder body.
• Able to destroy SSD Drives, Smartphones, mobile phones, mini-tablets, credit cards, CDs/DVDs & USB sticks.
• Auto-Reverse is enacted to ensure complete destruction of all inserted media.
• Small media destruction chute and larger media destruction flap built in for safe, efficient feeding.
• An easy to use control panel resides on the top of the unit that allows users to push a button for all operations.
• The control panel also indicates the status of the shredder, whether it is running through, standby or in auto-reverse.
Hard Drive Destroyers
After secure degaussing, using a hard drive destroyer is the best way to securely destroy all data on a hard drive. The current line of PDS hard drive destroyer machines offer fast, portable destruction. They break the magnetic media platter and bend the drives ninety degrees. The PDS drive destroyer line is currently listed on the Evaluated Products List (EPL). It is a highly secure means of second stage drive destruction.
We recommend using a combination of hard drive degaussers to pair with these HDD destroyers. For a fully portable operation, use our portable wand degausser with the manual PDS-75 drive destroyer machine. For a more powerful solution, use our patented Reverse Polarity technology T-4 with the PDS-100. All of these devices will effectively erase a hard drive and then destroy it.
Datarch is here to serve you with every facet of hard drive destruction, and the latest in hard drive destroyer technology.
