Secure Data Destruction - Onsite/Offsite Degaussing services


We offer a degaussing service for Hard drives, floppy disks and magnetic tape i.e. Data, DLT, SDLT, QIC, Dat, CCTV and Video tapes - Reel to Reel.

Our data destruction services are performed to the standards defined by the MoD. Being ISO 27001:2005 certified every stage of the process is auditable. Full and very detailed audit reports are available free of charge for any equipment processed.

With Secure I.T. Disposals Onsite services, you can rest assured that the security of your data is our primary concern. Whether it be Hard Drives, Flash Drives, Floppy disks, CDs, DVDs,  Ram Discs or Data, CCTV, and Video tapes, every single piece of data is destroyed — completely and beyond recovery!

Degaussing magnetic data storage media

Data is stored in the magnetic media, such as hard drives, floppy disks and magnetic tape, by making very small areas called magnetic domains change their magnetic alignment to be in the direction of an applied magnetic field. This phenomenon occurs in much the same way a compass needle points in the direction of the earth's magnetic field. Degaussing, commonly called erasure, leaves the domains in random patterns with no preference to orientation, thereby rendering previous data unrecoverable. There are some domains whose magnetic alignment is not randomized after degaussing. The information these domains represent is commonly called magnetic remanence since it is due to remanent magnetization. Proper degaussing will ensure there is insufficient magnetic remanence to reconstruct the data.

Erasure via degaussing may be accomplished in two ways: in AC erasure, the medium is degaussed by applying an alternating field that is reduced in amplitude over time from an initial high value (i.e., AC powered); in DC erasure, the medium is saturated by applying a unidirectional field (i.e., DC powered or by employing a permanent magnet).

Data Remanence

Is the residual representation of data that has been in some way nominally erased or removed. This residue may be due to data being left intact by a nominal delete operation, or through physical properties of the storage medium. Data remanence may make inadvertent disclosure of sensitive information possible, should the storage media be released into an uncontrolled environment (e.g., thrown in the trash, or given to a third-party).
