SDD Master - NSA Approved Hard Drive Pulse Degausser
Purge classified information with this high-energy pulse degausser
SV5000 Security Degausser
  • NSA Approved Triple Pulse Degausser
  • Complete erasure of hard drives
  • Effective on Longitudinal & Perpendicular hard drives
  • Simple, one-step automatic operation
  • Processor controllers deliver failsafe erasure
  • Continuous duty
  • Remote control operation

The SDD Master is a high energy, hard drive eraser designed to offer complete and secure erasure of magnetic media, to the highest level, including perpendicular recording hard drives. The SDD Master is also capable of erasing data storage media including DLT, LTO, 8mm, DDS and more.

The SDD Master generates the strongest erasure field of any degausser on the market. The SDD-Master delivers a minimum magnetic field of 17,750 three times to the media throughout the automatic operation. This ensures that the SDD Master remains unrivalled by any other degausser on the market. Where security is of the utmost importance, users can quickly sanitize their media without the need for disassembly.

The SDD Master is a bench mounted, chamber degausser, making operation safe, effective and simple for anyone. Operators simply lift the perspex lid, insert the media into the caddie, close the lid and press the ‘Start’ button via the control panel or the remote control. 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 60 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.
With safety in mind and to meet the latest ICNIRP Magnetic Exposure Guidelines, the SDD Master can be operated remotely via the remote control.

Regulatory Compliance
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 approved by the NSA.

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.

In addition, strict industry standards and government regulations are also in place, that force organizations to mitigate the risk of unauthorized exposure of confidential corporate & government data. These regulations include HIPAA(Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act); FACTA (The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003); GLB ( Gramm-Leach Bliley); Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOx); and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards ( PCI DSS).

Note: After degaussing, hard drives (and some cartridges) are not reusable
