Data Grinder & Degaussers - CRYPTO


Secure Destruction of Digital Data

With high capacity digital media such as hard drives and tape. You are able to store vast amounts of information on one device making this device vunerable and a target for abuse. Modern hard disk drives or magnetic storage tapes such as LTO or QIC can contain millions of written pages, together with other confidential information like pictures, films, financial calculations or banking data. All of this information is typically secured during use. After the information is no longer needed, you need to think seriously about how you wipe this media. Simply deleting all the files does not solve the problem. Most deleted information can easily be restored. Spot tests made on disposed computers and hard disk drives showed that more than 80% of all tested hard disk drives had never been deleted and still contained personal data. Worse was that roughly 50% of this data was hazardous.

Hard Drive Degausser

Intimus degaussers rely on APT (Advanced Pulse TechnologyTM). During the erase an effective quick burst generates a strong and powerful pulse. This results in 90% lower energy consumption compared to other models

At the same time they produce an erasing field many times stronger than those produced by the read/write heads in hard drives and tape drives. The field strength of an intimus degausser destroys the magnetic structure and ensures that the data are no longer recoverable by computer or laboratory attacks. Since the technology does not rely on software, it will also completely and permanently erase failed and damaged hard drives regardless of the operating system or interface. Built-in safeguards check the stored power before each erase cycle, ensuring complete erasure every time. A field strength meter, audible tones and lighted push buttons report the status of the degausser to the user.

Intimus Data Grinder

During 2007, 26 billion pieces of optical media (CDs, DVDs and Blu-Ray discs) were sold worldwide with an average annual sales increase of approximately 10%. They are currently the most frequently used media for portable and cost-effective information storage. Discs are portable, low cost and offer such advantages to the user. The problem is that it can also lead to abuse and data theft when these devices reach their final end-of-life destination. A single disc falling into the wrong hands could betray secrets or damage a companys prospects for years to come.


How can CD / DVD / Blu-Ray be destroyed Securely and Safely?

The biggest information assurance challenge from optical media is that the information layers on the disc need to be thoroughly removed. Its not good enough to throw away a disc or scratch the surface. Only a machine like the Intmus Data Grinder 005s grinds all information layers beyond the point of forensic recovery thus ensuring the highest level of information security. The U.S. guidelines for media sanitization specify grinding as the only sufficient optical media destruction method and intimus provides this added degree of safety.
