Erasure and Destruction Verification System IRONCLAD
With JPG Image Capture
Data destruction verification is effortlessly performed by IRONCLAD. Our exclusive system tracks, logs, and documents media as it is sanitized. Customizable Certificates of Erasure and Destruction, complete with JPG images of the media before and/or after destruction, provide proof the media was properly sanitized.
IRONCLAD is fully integrated with Garner's complete line of hard drive & tape degaussers, and hard drives & solid-state physical destroyers.
Data Security Best Practices: Degauss Before you Destroy
Physical destruction (i.e., shredding, crushing, piercing, bending) of hard drives without first being degaussed leaves data behind. In fact, a shredded but not-degaussed 2 mm² hard drive fragment can contain the equivalent of approximately 504,000 pages of paper containing sensitive and confidential data.
A degausser of appropriate field strength magnetically erases all data on hard drives making them safe and secure for disposal. Every hard drive must be degaussed before shredding, crushing, or disposal to ensure the data is unrecoverable.
Physical destruction provides visual confirmation that the hard drive has been securely processed; it discourages unscrupulous (but fruitless) attempts to retrieve data from the drive, and indicates the drive is ready to leave the controlled environment for disposal.
Note: Solid-state media cannot be degaussed. Physical destruction of media using the SSD-1 solid-state destroyer is recommended before media leaves the secure environment.
