Sanitized Data

Ensures that data is sanitized through controlled electromagnetic erasure of data

  • Hard disk drives and floppy disks are rendered unusable
  • Tape media with servo tracks are rendered unusable

Addresses all need scenarios, including:

  • Hard disk drives that have failed and must be sanitized while being retained through vendor disk retention programs
  • Magnetic portable storage media containing data that no longer requires retention
  • Enterprise and midrange storage systems, servers, virtual tape systems, and content archive systems for IT asset disposition
