Avoid security threats with data erasure

Delete Does Not Always Mean Delete

Simply deleting files from storage devices is not enough to ensure that sensitive data does not fall into the wrong hands. A degausser is the safest 'insurance policy' that a company can buy to prevent the spread of private data and the legal liability, as the magnetic fields that a degausser generates render a hard drive, tape or other magnetic data storage device useless.


Developed as a total data destruction solution for public and private sector organisations, Ontrack Eraser Degausser is an in-house do-it-yourself solution for large volumes of damaged or end-of-life devices. Organisations can now have peace of mind that when media devices leave their premises for destruction purposes, their sensitive data is not compromised and is completely destroyed.


100% wipe of data

Generating a peak field of 18,000 gauss, the Ontrack Eraser Degausser cost-effectively wipes 100% of media in a matter of seconds.

This powerful electromagnetic field overcomes the varying oersted levels of differing magnetic media and their manufacturers' recommended gauss levels ensuring complete media device data destruction.

Ontrack Eraser Degausser as a Service

Kroll Ontrack Data Recovery offers the Ontrack Degausser as a service - simply fill in the service request form and send it in with the drive/s that you want wiped. We will then conduct a full electromagnetic and certified wipe of your media with the Ontrack Degausser. You then have the option of having the drive returned to you via standard post of donating it to the Inala Special Schools Project.
