Garner Paces Hard Disk Drive Innovation with Release of HD-2X Degausser

An increase of 20% degaussing capability without increasing product size, energy consumption, or pricing over the replaced HD-2 model

Roseville, CA – November 03, 2017 - Garner Products, Inc., the leader in data elimination and destruction, released an upgraded version of its trusted line of HD-2 degaussers with the 10,000 gauss HD-2X. The redesigned HD-2X was developed to stay ahead of increasing data capacity on Hard Disk Drives (HDDs) as well as to accommodate disk architecture as magnetic media technology advances in the future.

“At Garner, we focus on how we can help the data storage industry of today and tomorrow”, said Ron Stofan, President of Garner Products. “Our goal is to be a trusted partner in data elimination by developing products that help mitigate the risk of a data breach with damaged or decommissioned disk drives.”

The compact 10,000 gauss (1 Tesla) HD-2X was developed to help lower-volume degaussing needs at an economical price. At 34 pounds, the lightweight model also follows Garner’s mission of bringing data destruction directly to the data to help ensure compliancy with current regulations such as HIPAA and NIST as well as future laws such as the coming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018.

“Regulations that have monetary fines for noncompliance, such as GDPR, are sure to become the norm as the number of both cyber and disk data breaches continue to rise,” said Michael Harstrick, Chief Global Development Officer of Garner Products. “Data privacy and protection is a serious business that needs serious solutions like the HD-2X and our other mobile products.”

Some of the features of the new HD-2X include:

  • Generates 10,000+ gauss (1 Tesla) magnetic field for complete erasure of hard drives and tape (nominal)
  • Erases up to 480 (1.8 in.); 360 (2.5 in.); and 60 (3.5 in.) hard drives per hour
  • Erases working and non-working hard drives
  • Built-in field verification system and on board diagnostics confirm he magnetic field strength of every erase cycle, ensuring complete erasure
  • Out of box compatibility with the IRONCLAD Proof-of-Erasure verification system

Permanent Erasure Means Data Is Gone Forever

Because the HD-2 generates high-powered magnetic field ensuring complete erasure. Magnetic erasure also means there’s no software to buy, update, or upgrade. And the HD-2 technology used to erase magnetic hard drives and tape media will never become obsolete due to software or driver modifications.

Degauss vs. Overwrite

The HD-2 uses our proven solid-state technology to generate a high-powered erasure field that’s far superior to the fields produced by the read/write heads in hard drives and tape drives. Unlike overwriting, the HD-2 generates an erase field that encompasses the entire hard drive or tape, leaving no area unchanged. The HD-2 requires no physical connection, such as a cable, enabling it to erase data on working and nonworking hard drives. Degaussing technology also makes the HD-2 software independent, allowing you to completely and permanently erase any magnetic hard drive or tape, regardless of the operating system or interface.

Secure and Compliant

The HD-2 will help you meet government and industry standards requiring complete erasure of sensitive data prior to disposal, including:

Garner Drives Home Importance of End-of-Life Data Security at Thomson Reuters’ Future of Data ProtectionForum

Michael Harstrick, Chief Global Development Officer of Garner Products, introduced new concepts of end-of-life data protection that will comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) being implemented in May 2018

Roseville, CA USA and London, UK – October 10, 2017 - Garner Products, Inc., the leader in data elimination and destruction, presented at the 6th Annual Thomson Reuters’ The Future of Data Protection Forum on October 5th. The forum focus was to gain a better understanding about compliance for the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) being implemented in May of 2018.

Michael Harstrick, Garner Products Chief Global Development Officer, presented to an audience of more than 250 C-suite attendees representing companies in the UK and throughout the European Union. Industries such as legal, privacy, banking, retail, food, and pharmaceutical are all in a race to become GDPR-operational and compliant by the implementation date.

“In both its complexity and vagueness, the GDPR has been quite a challenge for companies to understand and then implement this stack of regulations on top of their current state of business,” said Michael. “Data protection and privacy are serious issues and the responsibility of all companies that hold customer data. The problem is that companies are scrambling to find out how they can truly protect this data. That is why I am here in London.”

Do You Know Who May Have Your Data?

Michael spoke of the frequently overlooked but catastrophic consequences of physical data breaches. “While most attention regarding GDPR and current breaches such as Equifax are focused on cybersecurity, there is a highly dangerous vulnerability with data security breaches from stored, stockpiled, donated, resold, discarded and recycled magnetic and solid-state media. These data landmines are not only realistic threats for data centers, but for every business throughout the world.

In presenting the potential danger to companies and their bottom line, share price, and customer base, as well as GDPR fines in the case of a data breach, Michael also offered powerful solutions to protect companies from the devastating aftermath of physical data breaches. While holding a storage disk for the audience to view, Michael reviewed the NSA/CSS-listed degaussing method of destroying data on damaged or retired disks.

Bring your old hard drives and solid-state storage to the Garner booth for free, secure destruction!

Garner Products, Inc., the leader in data elimination and destruction, will be exhibiting in booth (#2242) at the upcoming ASIS 2017 conference on Sept. 25-28 in Dallas, TX. ASIS is the world's largest association for security management professionals. Michael Harstrick, Garner’s Director of Global Sales, will hold demonstrations in the booth, including the unveiling of Garner’s state-of-the-art Mobile Destruction Unit. Organizations go to great lengths to protect their data from network intrusions, hacking, viruses, and theft. The recent, massive data breach at Equifax has brought this issue into the spotlight once again. However, many fail to protect against the disastrous consequences of data security breaches from stored, stockpiled, donated, resold, discarded and recycled magnetic and solid-state media that they thought was deleted, erased or secured through overwriting or encryption technology. Such breaches cause crippling business interruption, damage to hard-earned reputations, and significant liability due to the unauthorized release of protected client information. Garner’s data elimination and destruction products help ensure your organization will never experience end-of-life data breaches. At Garner, we believe that the safest way to dispose of your sensitive data is to bring the destruction to the data and not the data to the destruction.
