Media Degaussing

At Mamoth, we understand that each step of the data destruction process is important to ensure that data is not recoverable and your brand is protected. Within our Data Sanitization & Brand Protection service, we can degauss your sensitive media. Degaussed drives cannot be reused or resold.


    What is Degaussing?

    Degaussing is a data sanitization method that uses a strong magnetic field to erase data from a magnetic storage device, such as a hard drive, tape drive, or floppy disk. The process works by altering the magnetic field on the storage media, effectively erasing any previously stored data. Mamoth always utilizes degaussing, shredding, or a combination of both to ensure your data cannot be recovered.

    Can a Hard Drive Be Reused After Degaussing?

    No, a hard drive no longer works once it is degaussed. The strong magnetic field used to erase data from the hard drive makes it unable to spin. Mamoth can also logically wipe hard drives using software solutions if you want to reuse the storage device.

    Does Degaussing Work on an SSD?

    It’s important to note that not all magnetic storage media can be degaussed. Solid-state drives (SSDs) and other non-magnetic storage devices, such as USB drives and SD cards, cannot be degaussed.
