V91HD/DLT Degausser

  • Degausser Features:

  • CESG & NATO approved
  • Suitable for most media formats
  • 7000 peak gauss field
  • Simple and quick to operate
  • Cost effective secure erasure
  • 3 yr warranty-upgradeable to 5 yrs
If you require erasure of a full array of magnetic media including high density metal tapes and cassettes, then the SV91M is up to the job.

The SV91M is fast, taking as little as ten seconds to completely erase a cassette. It’s simple to use and provides a thoroughly effective and low cost means of degaussing DLT, DAT and other high coercivity tape. It is also suitable for erasing PC hard drives for security purposes and the SV91M is particularly recommended for erasing defective or damaged drives where other types of erasing may not be effective.

The SV91M is a low noise, manually operated unit that sets neatly on a table top and has been designed very much with security operations in mind, as its powerful degaussing fields can erase even metal particle tape.

The SV91M is ideal for the security conscious, low volume operator who wants to have a professional, low budget solution to eliminate magnetic media security risks.

Security Approved
The SV91M has been NATO approved and meets the specified requirements of CESG Degaussing Standard. The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has approved the SV91 for security applications.

Currently the SV91M is approved at the Lower Level. This means any magnetic media (holding restricted or less) may be regarded as not protectively marked after being degaussed. The SV91M is subject to S(E)N 06/09 which requires all the SEAP-approved degaussers to be re-tested against the new CESG Degaussing Standard (at the Higher Level). At this time, the testing standard is not yet available.

The SV91M may still be used to degauss magnetic media at confidential and above, but the degaussed media is subject to additional handling requirements (detailed in S(E)N 06/09).

Regulatory Compliance
Strict industry standards & government regulations are in place, that force organizations to mitigate the risk of unauthorized exposure of confidential corporate & government data. These regulations include HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act); FACTA (The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003); GLB ( Gramm-Leach Bliley); Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOx); and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards ( PCI DSS).

Security of data is also a legal requirement under the European Union’s Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC) & the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998, ensuring the complete removal of all data from redundant equipment is essential to maintain the security and integrity of data. In addition, many standards insist that the process of data destruction is fully traceable. Using a degausser to sanitize media provides a fully auditable procedure.
