Proton's New Automatic Degausser Meets Department of Defense Requirements for Hard Drive Destruction

Share Article

The new Proton T-4 is a 40,000 gauss hard drive eraser that meets DoD requirements for data destruction and will be on the NSA Degausser Evaluated Products List. As the most powerful degausser available, the T-4 defines the leading reference point in performance and price and is capable of destroying multi-terabyte hard drives. The T-4 provides all government agencies, government contractors and large corporations with the means to erase sensitive and classified information from hard drives and other electronic media in an environmentally responsible manner.

By completely erasing confidential data in magnetic media, the T-4 eliminates the risk of sensitive information ending up in the wrong hands. This reduces the possibility of costly data breaches and avoids negative publicity

Proton Data Security is announcing its newest product, the Proton T-4 40,000 gauss degausser that meets DoD requirements for data destruction and will be on the NSA Degausser Evaluated Products List. As the most powerful degausser available, the T-4 defines the leading reference point in performance and price.

The T-4 provides all government agencies, government contractors and large corporations with the means to destroy sensitive and classified information from hard drives and other electronic media in an environmentally responsible manner. "By completely erasing confidential data in magnetic media, the T-4 eliminates the risk of sensitive information ending up in the wrong hands. This reduces the possibility of costly data breaches and avoids negative publicity," said Proton's CEO, John Lobo. "Software sanitizing or 'wiping' hard drives is time extensive and may leave data exposed as was reported in recent government audit findings (Federal Times, June 29, 2009). The Proton T-4 leaves no doubt that data in any hard drive available today is totally destroyed."

The T-4 employs a patented EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) technology for quick and automatic destruction of magnetic media. At 40,000 gauss, the T-4's degaussing power is capable of destroying magnetic information with high coercivity on multi-terabyte hard disk drives. This capability results in an important value proposition and cost savings over the next several years as disk density increases. The T-4 delivers the ability to destroy sensitive information, integrates with best practice security procedures, and allows businesses and government agencies to comply with NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) standards and many legislative mandates such as FACTA, HIPPA, GLB and state privacy regulations.

Not only is the T-4 the strongest degausser available on the market, but at 128 pounds it is also lighter than its competition and can be conveniently used for table top or floor operation. Commercial and GSA pricing for the T-4 is available from Proton's authorized resellers and delivery requires approximately four weeks. As with all of Proton's products, the T-4 is manufactured in the USA.
