Degaussing is the technological process of erasing data and information from storage devices including hard drives, discs, tapes, film, and electronic storage media. The strong electro-magnets the process works by removes the encrypted data and scrambles it, so it is no longer readable or transferable from the storage device. Degaussing is very important for the protection of personal and business data, and it is really the only guaranteed way to delete data permanently and ensure that it cannot be accessed in any way. The only other option is the complete and utter destruction of every shred of the device, which can be difficult to achieve.

Get Help for Your Hard Drive Degaussing Needs
Hard drive degaussing works to protect vital data and information. Although it may seem strange that something as simple as a strong magnetic field is powerful enough to permanently delete data, you have likely experienced a smaller version of this. If you have ever found that the strip on your credit card no longer works, chances are it was erased by exposure to a magnetic field such as a computer, phone, or other magnetic source. The same thing happens on a much, much larger scale when we degauss hard drives.
