The Garner HD-2XTE IRONCLAD is an advanced degaussing system that combines the power of the HD-2XTE degausser with the IRONCLAD Erasure Verification System, creating a comprehensive solution for data destruction. This system is designed for organizations that require not only the physical erasure of sensitive information from their magnetic storage media but also a verifiable means of confirming and documenting the process.
Garner HD-2XTE Degausser:
- Efficient Degaussing: The HD-2XTE is capable of degaussing hard drives and tapes in seconds, rendering the data on the media unrecoverable.
- Powerful Magnetic Fields: Utilizing a strong electromagnetic field, it effectively erases data from magnetic storage devices, including hard disk drives and various tape formats.
- Ease of Use: The HD-2XTE is designed to be user-friendly, featuring simple controls for straightforward operation.
IRONCLAD Erasure Verification System:
- Image Capture: The IRONCLAD system includes a camera to capture an image of the degaussed media, providing visual proof that the degaussing process has been completed.
- Detailed Reporting: It generates detailed reports that document the serial number, user ID, witness ID, date, time, and the degausser’s Gauss field strength at the time of erasure.
- Touchscreen Interface: The IRONCLAD system typically features a touchscreen interface that facilitates easy interaction and navigation through the erasure verification process.
- Secure Chain of Custody: The combination of image capture and detailed reporting ensures a secure chain of custody, providing an audit trail for regulatory compliance and security protocols.
- Compliance with Regulations: The HD-2XTE IRONCLAD assists organizations in meeting compliance with data destruction regulations, such as HIPAA, GDPR, GLBA, and other privacy laws.
- Verification of Destruction: The IRONCLAD system offers a level of verification that is critical for organizations that need to prove that sensitive data has been destroyed in accordance with policy or regulation.
- Environmental Responsibility: Degaussing is an environmentally responsible method of data destruction, and the Garner HD-2XTE allows for the recycling of components from the degaussed media.
- Risk Mitigation: By providing a verifiable destruction process, the HD-2XTE IRONCLAD mitigates the risk of data breaches associated with improper disposal of storage media.
The Garner HD-2XTE IRONCLAD is therefore ideal for organizations that need a reliable, secure, and accountable way to ensure that the data on their end-of-life magnetic media is completely destroyed. The IRONCLAD verification adds an extra layer of security by providing tangible evidence of destruction, making it easier to meet the stringent requirements for data sanitization and information security.
