Why Degauss?

Why should you degauss your magnetic media?

Why Degauss?

Data breaches can cost millions of dollars, tarnish the good reputation of a business, lead to identity theft and even jeopardize national security. Several laws now require organizations to comply with strict regulations to ensure that no personal data is left on discarded hard drives and other electronic media.

Simply deleting files, using software overwrites, or physically damaging hard drives is insufficient because it leaves data forensically recoverable. The only way to permanently erase your sensitive data is to degauss it. In a matter of seconds all data on electronic media can be completely sanitized. Proton’s products provide compliance with electronic waste disposal regulations and also the peace of mind that your data won’t end up in the wrong hands.
