Comparison of data destruction methods

Comparison of data destruction methods

1. Degaussing machines may not produce a strong enough magnetic field to destroy all of the data.

2. In many cases, degaussing is a third party process.

3. Since the degaussing process disables the hard drive, there is no way to test the process to ensure that the data is gone.

4. Depends on the extent to which the disks have been shredded.

Go back to Appliance-based digital shredding for data destruction.
