If keeping data secure is a priority for you, then your going to want to find solutions that work with your budget, space, and workflow.
In this article, we’re going to discuss the top 3 elements that make a degausser a convenient solution as an HDD sanitizer.
Degaussers really are the perfect size to deal with hard drive sanitization.
They range from a handheld degausser wand to machines that could fit perfectly at your desk or on a table.
There are no other NSA Listed hard drive shredders or hd crushers that have the convenience of handheld portability.
Degausser wands are uniquely convenient in the way that they don’t require an electrical outlet for operation.
In that way, degausser wands can be useful in any location.
Degaussers are as simple as pushing a button and listening to the “BOOM!” of the data getting wiped from a hard drive.
With other options such as hard drive shredders and hard drive crushers, you get the unfortunate mess of sharp chunks and bits of hard drives.
Hard drive shredders can cost you money and time if the teeth of the shredder get jammed.
With a degausser, a jam is out of the question.
With a hard drive crusher, you also deal with bits and pieces of hdd’s to clean out of the machine.
For the most part with hd crushers, there’s barely any mess, however, with a degausser there is no cleanup necessary.
A machine that doesn’t create debris will improve your workflow and add to the convenience of your daily operations.
The last thing that you need on your hands is a service nightmare!
Commercial degaussers can fire off in less than a second.
This is a level of productivity that you won’t find from other machines.
