NSA & CESG Goverment Approved Maximum Security
Hard Drive Degausser
The SDD Master is a high energy, pulse discharge hard drive eraser designed to offer complete and secure erasure of magnetic media to the very highest level. Generating the strongest magnetic field of any degausser on the market, the SDD Masters unique triple erase process, ensures complete data erasure every time. Where security is of the upmost importance, the SDD Master should be your degausser of choice thats why its an NSA approved degausser, favoured by government departments and security departments around the world.
The SDD Master is fitted with the unique Data Destruction Auditor which enables you to document and verify your hard drive sanitization/erasure and create data protection audit ready reports. The SDD Master is also self-calibrating, providing the user with assured erasure time after time.
Easy Operation. The SDD Master is a fully automatic degausser. Lift the perspex lid, insert the media into the caddie, close the lid and press the 'Start' button on the control panel. Media is transported into the degausser where the magnetic field is activated by a powerful pulse discharge. While inside the degausser, media is automatically rotated and a further two magnetic discharges are applied, ensuring complete erasure. The entire process takes approximately 75 seconds.
The processor controlled SDD Master continuously monitors the operation ensuring that the erasure cycle is completed. The operator is immediately alerted to any interruptions in the erasure cycle on the LCD control panel.
Data Destruction Auditor: The SDD Masters unique
Data Destruction Auditor records all essential information of the
degaussing/sanitization process. Reports can be generated detailing
key information such as media serial numbers, degauss force, date
and time of erasure and operator details and used as evidence of degaussing.
Data Destruction Auditor provides a complete sanitization/erasure
audit trail. The SDD Master comes fitted with Data Destruction Auditor
Compliance.The SDD Master is a NSA Evaluated Products list Degausser and meets CESG higher level for the erasure of information to CONFIDENTIAL and above.
NSA: The NSA is an agency of the US government which is responsible for protecting U.S. government communications and information systems. The NSA publishes guidance on the sanitization (erasure), declassification, and release of storage devices for disposal or recycling in the NSA CSS Policy Manual 9-12, NSA/CSS Storage Device Declassification Policy Manual. Within this, the NSA publish the EPL-Degausser (Evaluated Products List Degausser) which specifies the current degaussers that have been evaluated against and found to satisfy the requirements for erasure of magnetic storage devices that retain sensitive or classified data. The SDD-Master has been tested and evaluated by the NSA.
CESG: UK Government CESG has approved the use of products listed on the NSA Degausser Evaluated Product List to degauss to the higher security level for CONFIDENTIAL and above.
Many government agencies are required to manage their data security to detailed government specifications which would require them to buy an approved degausser. Safe and secure data disposal is critical within the military which is why the Department of Defense (DOD) also adheres to the guidelines outlined out in the NSA CSS Policy Manual 9-12 for the destruction of classified material. In addition, if an organization is involved in managing highly sensitive or confidential information such as financial, medical, education, personal and legal information, they must be vigilant in how they deal with the disposal of such information and the use of an approved degausser would be highly recommended.
Security of data is also a legal requirement under the UKs Data Protection Act 1998 and the European Data Protection
The SDD Master also complies with the following Government
Mandates that require destruction of sensitive information stored
on Hard Drives and Backup Tapes before their disposal.
