Certificate of Erasure & Destruction

IRONCLAD® Media Erasure and Destruction Verification System

Garner's exclusive IRONCLAD Erasure and Destruction Verification System automatically captures a JPG image of the hard drive immediately after it is degaussed and generates an exportable proof-of-destruction certificate for audit and archival purposes.

SPACESAVER IRONCLAD Compact Degausser Package Features & Benefits

  • 10,000 Gauss of the HD-2XTSS degausser destroys all data on hard drives and tape in 8 seconds
  • 10+ tons of force and the hardened steel crushing wedge of the PD-5 bend, break and mangle hard drives
  • 90 spikes of the nickel-plated SSD-1 puncture, perforate, and waffle solid-state media, demolishing the individual memory chips preventing data recovery
  • Exportable audit reports are automatically generated of the destroyed media, including JPG images, operator ID, witness ID, date/time, location, and serial numbers
  • Secure password-protected system
  • Degausser's gauss field strength is recorded after every cycle
  • The operator is informed and the system records the degausser erasure results and PD-5 crush depth immediately after each cycle
  • IRONCLAD reports are exportable in PDF, CSV, and Excel file formats
  • Operates in 2 modes: "Verification Mode" with prompts for new operators; and "Processing Mode" for faster processing
  • Plugs into a standard wall outlet


Information Security Best Practices: Degauss Before you Destroy

  • Physical destruction of hard drives alone leaves data behind (ie. shredding, crushing, piercing, bending)
  • HD-2XTSS Degausser eliminates all data on the disc platters
  • After degaussing, physical destruction from the PD-5 gives visual confirmation that the hard drive has been securely processed and is ready to leave the controlled environment for disposal or shredding

Note:  Solid-state media cannot be degaussed.  Physical destruction of the media with the SSD-1 solid-state destroyer is recommended before the media leaves its secure environment.

Degauss vs. Overwrite

Overwriting is a method where a random pattern of usually "1" and "0" is written to every part of the drive, frequently three times, to obliterate the underlying data.  The advantage of this method is the drive can be re-used.  The disadvantages are:  it takes a skilled operator to ensure the overwriting is done correctly; non-functioning sectors of the hard drive cannot be overwritten allowing data to remain on the drive; it takes a considerable amount of time-hours, and therefore electricity; and it is not regarded as failsafe, or permissible for the highest data security standards such as the NSA, CIA, or DoD. 

Degaussing is the process of exposing the media to a strong magnetic field of sufficient strength to magnetically destroy the data.  The advantages of degaussing are:  a skilled operator is not required to operate a degausser; the magnetic field destroys all data on the drive in approximately 1/10 of a second regardless of whether the drive is functioning or non-functioning. Degaussing is recognized by the NSA and DoD as an appropriate method of secure data destruction. The disadvantage of degaussing is the hard drive cannot be re-used.

After degaussing, the data on a degaussed hard drive simply no longer exists.
