An increasing number of government regulations, industry standards, and internal risk mitigation policies require organizations to sanitize storage media prior to disposal or reuse. Though specific requirements vary, the goal is the same—to ensure the data contained on storage media cannot be recovered using any method.
At Garner, we manufacture and sell hard drive degaussers and physical destroyers specifically designed to help you eliminate the risk of data theft and meet the standards that govern your organization’s operations. The chart below lists the most common government and industry standards for sanitizing magnetic tapes and hard drives with links to the Garner Product models that help you comply.
