Any business that has confidential data needs to have a strategy for properly destroying the data at the end of its lifecycle. The T-1.5 offers those responsible for compliance the peace of mind that their data is completely erased and unrecoverable.
Miami, FL (PRWEB) June 16, 2010
Proton Data Security announces the release of its newest automatic degausser, the model T-1.5. The T-1.5 is a drawer style degausser that permanently deletes data from magnetic media such as hard drives and storage tapes. It releases an electromagnetic pulse of 15,000 gauss in seconds and is capable of sanitizing media with terabytes worth of data.
The T-1.5 allows organizations to sanitize confidential information and comply with NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) standards and many legislative regulations such as HIPAA, FACTA, GLB and state privacy regulations. “This innovative machine is specifically designed to help hospitals, financial institutions, educational institutions, and state and local government agencies protect their confidential data and implement best practice security procedures. Any business that has confidential or sensitive information needs to have a strategy for properly destroying and disposing of the data at the end of its lifecycle. The Proton T-1.5 offers those responsible for compliance with the peace of mind that their data is completely destroyed and can never be recovered,” said CEO John Lobo.
The T-1.5 is fully automatic and easy to use requiring only a simple push of the start button after the media is placed in the unit’s drawer. No formal training is required. The unit is also lightweight and compact which allows it to easily fit into existing operations.
With a magnetic flux density rating of 15,000 gauss (1.5 Tesla) and magnetic field intensity rating of 5,000 oersted the T-1.5 is the strongest drawer style degausser available today, capable of erasing up to 3 Terabyte drives or tapes! Any magnetic hard drive or tape 1x4.3x6” or less is totally destroyed in less than 10 seconds. Hard drives or tapes larger than the drawer size may still be sanitized by removing the covers of the media and then placing the device in the unit. As magnetic media storage capacities increase, the T-1.5 will continue to be the ultimate guard against costly data breaches. While the power of degaussers has increased significantly, the price, speed and size has decreased as well making these units extremely affordable for any agency or business.
