NSA Approved, Continuous Duty hard Drive Degausser
The SDD Master is the most up to date degausser to be evaluated and approved by the NSA Products List (EPL Degausser), meeting CESG higher level for CONFIDENTIAL and above. The SDD Master degausser complies with US Department of Defence requirements for destroying classified information on magnetic media with safety.
The SDD Master is a high energy, triple pulse discharge 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 degausser comes standard with remote control electronics for complete operator safety--the operator can be located several feet from the machine during operation (even in the next room). This is the only NSA Approved degausser available with safety priorities to permit hard drives to be degaussed by remote control operation.
NSA evaluated products list degausser (EPL Degausser)
Meets CESG higher level – for CONFIDENTIAL and above.
NSA Approval: The NSA publishes guidance on the sanitization (erasure), declassification, and release of storage devices for destruction, 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.
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.
The SDD-Master generates the one of the strongest erasure fields of any degausser on the market, with a maximum gauss rating of 22,000 gauss. Where security is of the utmost importance, users can quickly sanitize their media without the need for disassembly. This remote-controlled NSA Approved Degausser is the standard for the industry.
It runs continuously and does not require a cool down period between degaussing cycles. The heavy-duty rugged construction and remote control offer the maximum in machine efficiency and user safety.
