Hard Drive & Tape Degausser TS-4XT IRONCLAD

Erasure Verification System

Garner's TS-4XT is the only 40,000+ gauss (4+ tesla) degausser equipped with IRONCLAD, a proof-of-erasure system that automatically generates an erasure report that includes an image of the hard drive for each hard drive as it is degaussed. With a 40,000+ gauss field, the TS-4XT completely erases all data on hard drives and tapes in under ~30 seconds.

IRONCLAD® 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.

TS-4XT IRONCLAD Degausser Benefits & Features

  • 40,000+ gauss completely erases all data on hard drives and tapes in ~30 seconds
  • Generate audit reports of destruction, including JPG images, operator ID, witness ID, date/time, location, and serial numbers
  • Secure password-protected system
  • Exportable JPG images of the degaussed hard drives
  • Informs operator and records the erasure results immediately after each cycle with green "Pass" or red "Fail"
  • IRONCLAD report exports in PDF, CSV, and Excel file formats
  • Operates in 2 modes: "Verification Mode" with prompts for new operators; and "Processing Mode" for faster processing
  • Operates off a standard wall outlet 

Data Security Best Practices: Degauss Before you Destroy

  • Physical destruction of hard drives alone leaves data behind (i.e. shredding, crushing, piercing, bending)
  • The TS-4XT 40,000+ gauss 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 Garner SSD-1 solid-state destroyer is recommended before the media leaving 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.
