Product Code: SDD Master LG

The SDD Master is a high energy, pulse discharge hard drive eraser designed to offer complete and secure erasure of magnetic media, to the highest level, including longitude & perpendicular recording hard drives. The SDD-Master is also capable of erasing data storage media including DLT, LTO, 8mm, DDS and more. Erasure Log Software records all operating and degaussing information which can be saved and printed, giving hard copy evidence of complete erasure for reporting and audit purposes.

Security Approval

NSA Evaluated Products List Degausser (EPL Degausser)

Meets CESG higher level - for CONFIDENTIAL and above

The SDD Master generates the strongest erasure field of any degausser on the market - 20,000 gauss typ. The unique triple erase process ensures complete data destruction. Where security is of the utmost importance, users can quickly sanitise their Hard Drive without the need for disassembly.

The SDD Master is a table top mounted, chamber degausser, making operation safe, effective and simple for anyone.

Operators simply lift the perspex lid, insert the media into the caddie, close the lid and press the 'Start' button via the control panel. Media is transported into the degausser where the magnetic field is activated by a powerful pulse discharge. While inside the degausser, media is automatically rotated and a further two magnetic discharges are applied, ensuring complete erasure. The entire process takes approximately 75 seconds. The processor controlled SDD Master continuously monitors the operation ensuring that the erasure cycle is completed. The operator is immediately alerted to any interruptions in the erasure cycle on the LCD control panel.

When erasure logging is required simply connect a PC or Laptop to the degausser and open the logging program. Click on the "Find Machine" button and all the unit details are automatically entered into the log including model, serial number and firmware version. Further data regarding operator, customer and media is then entered via keyboard (or optional barcode scanner).

The Hard Drive or Tape is placed in the tray and the operator clicks the "Destroy" button on the screen which starts the degaussing process. The lower portion of the screen now shows all the details of the erasure including date, time, Media Serial number, Capacitor Voltage, Magnetic Gauss Field and confirmation that the media was degaussed successfully. If this data is highlighted and the print button pressed all the details on the screen along with all the data entered will be printed as a report. As new media is erased the details will be added to the Media Processed Log in the lower half of the screen. By highlighting erase records, the logs of one or more can be printed as required.

There is a Supervisor Section in the software which is Password protected. This allows the Supervisor to decide which fields are required and which fields must be completed by the Operator. The log record is stored in the PC and can be archived at any time or exported as a .csv file.
