intimus® Degaussers listed in NATO Catalogue for Information Security Products (NIAPC)

All three intimus® degaussers now classified for HDD destruction according to „NATO SECRET“.
Degausser intimus 9000 (PresseBox) (Markdorf, ) The NATO Information Assurance Catalogue (NIAPC) provides NATO nations, and NATO civil and military bodies with a catalogue of Information Assurance products for procurement of products for their operational requirements (established under Directive AC/322-D(2010)0042 (22-09-2010)) .
This enables organizations to destroy their top secret information according to the Primary Directive on INFOSEC.
“With a wide variety of information stored on HDDs and magnetic tape, many organizations are vulnerable to data breaches and data theft if their data storage devices were to fall into the wrong hands”, says Jochen Stroehm, Product Manager at Martin Yale International. “Degaussing is one of the best ways to securely sanitize data on magnetic storage devices – the intimus® degausser range offers solutions for a large variety of applications. “
All three intimus® degausser models, 8000, 9000 and 20000 were classified into the second highest category and can therefore be used for the destruction of Information on HDD up to the level “NATO SECRETS”.
„We are happy and very proud about this listing“, Jochen Stroehm says. “Deletion of magnetic Hard Disk Drives is one of the top themes in IT departments not only in military but also in civil organizations worldwide. This NATO listing underlines the high level of performance of our solutions - ranging from a compact table top unit up to a high capacity degausser.”

intimus® degaussers rely on APT (Advanced Pulse TechnologyTM). During the erase an effective quick burst generates a strong and powerful pulse. This results in 90% lower energy consumption compared to other models.
At the same time they produce an erasing field many times stronger than those produced by the read/write heads in hard drives and tape drives. The field strength of an intimus® degausser destroys the magnetic structure and ensures that the data are no longer recoverable by computer or laboratory attacks. Since the technology does not rely on software, it will also completely and permanently erase failed and damaged hard drives regardless of the operating system or interface. Built-in safeguards check the stored power before each erase cycle, ensuring complete erasure every time. A field strength meter, audible tones and lighted push buttons report the status of the degausser to the user.
Besides the NIAPC listing intimus® degaussers 8000 and 9000 have been classified by the Norwegian NSM. The High Security model intimus® 20000 has been approved by the US-American NSA (National Security Agency) in 2011.
