Data Destruction

Data destruction is a much greater process than simply deleting or removing data from a hard drive or data tapes, the process leaves electronic media completely un-operable by effectively destroying all elements of data. Using Ontrack® Eraser Degausser, DSA Connect has the capability to completely remove data from large volumes of media or end-of-life magnetic media on or off-site.

How does Ontrack® Eraser Degausser work?

Ontrack® Eraser Degausser ensures all sensitive data is completely destroyed, removing the risk of data being compromised. 

Wiping 100% of data stored on hard drives and data tapes within seconds, Ontrack® Eraser Degausser uses a powerful 18,000 gauss magnetic field that renders devices completely inoperable. The process exposes media to a powerful electromagnetic field of ample strength which magnetically destroys data for complete data destruction.

The Ontrack® Eraser Degausser penetrates the core of magnetic media, obliterating all data in a single operation and renders devices unsuitable for re-use. 

An ideal solution for large volumes of end-of-life hard drives and data tapes, the data destruction service is a compact and portable system that allows DSA Connect to conduct on-site destruction services. Easily operated in an office environment, the Ontrack® Eraser Degausser is a silent, non-polluting system that allows data destruction to take place within the office premises rather than outside in a vehicle.

Following the completion of the data destruction service, a digitally-signed, tamper-proof certificate of destruction is provided for verification, auditing and compliance. 

Electronic media that has undergone the degaussing process is distributed to licenced recycling facilities to be disposed of safely. All IT equipment not appropriate for re-sale is manually dismantled by DSA Connect, whilst hard drives are shredded using a granulator. The media parts are then sent to recycling plants where they are segregated for smelting and metal recovery, and where possible used in place of raw materials for industrial processes. 

If the equipment is not suitable for dismantling, DSA Connect dispatch a licenced Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) processing plant for recycling.
