Media Sanitization

Precision Business Solutions can ensure old hard drives and backup tapes are properly destroyed, using our HD-2 Hard Drive Degausser.

Degaussing a hard drive destroys the drive or backup media, ensuring data cannot be recovered.  Additionally, degaussing can be used on non-functioning drives, as opposed to sanitizing a drive for re-use.

Government Mandate Compliance

The HD-2 Data Eliminator Degausser assists you in meeting compliance standards for government mandates that require complete elimination of sensitive information stored on magnetic media prior to re-use or disposal, including the following:

  • GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
  • PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry) Data Security Standard
  • NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media Sanitization: NIST 800-36, NIST 800-88
  • HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)
  • PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)
  • California Senate Bill 1386

Erases Non-Functioning Drives

The HD-2’s unique technology does not rely on software and thus easily and efficiently erases failed or damaged hard drives and tapes, completely and permanently, regardless of the operating system.
