DDR-1 Secure End-of-Lifecycle System for Hard Drives.

  • Complete Workstation for Secure End-of-Lifecycle System for Hard Drives.

  • Combines Degausser HD-WXL and Hard Drive Destroyer PD-4 for a 3 Step Operation of Hard Drive Data and Hardware Destruction.

  • Support for most Security Standards like PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry), NIST, NIST SP 800-36, NIST SP 800-88, HIPAA, PIPEDA, GLBA and California Senate Bill 1386.

Safely Store Data Unrecoverable Data Erasure Physical Destruction

Hard drives can be safely stored inside a locked cabinet until processed by an authorized IT Technician.

Hard drives are completely erased by the HD-3WXL degausser in about 6 seconds and automatically deposited into the yellow bin ready for complete physical destruction.

Once degaussed, the hard drives are physically destroyed by the PD-4 and can be safely recycled with all Data completely unrecoverable by any means.

DDR-1 Workstation for Secure End-of-Lifecycle System for Hard Drives.

Ensure the safety of your information by controlling your media while it is going through the end of life-cycle process. Made specifically to incorporate the HD-3WXL Series Degaussers and the PD-4 Physical Destroyer in to a Degauss-Destroy-Recycle System. The DDR-1 System is designed to utilize a secure area to store media before degaussing and manage degaussed and destroyed media after processing using color coded bins and a special recycling container.

Theft or loss of hard drives is a serious security threat. Controlling your magnetic media during the end of life-cycle process in a manner that conforms to government mandates is key to any compliance policy. The Secure Workstation supporting an HD-3WXL series degausser allows users to deposit media ready to be degaussed in the secure drop slot on the top of the workstation. Media can be removed for degaussing by opening the secure cabinet underneath the table to begin the decommissioning process.

The DDR-1 System can also be used to degauss and complete delete all data on Tape Cartridges like DLT, LTO, 3480 and QIC that fit into the HD-3WXL Media Slot. Please note, that some cartridges will not be reusable after degaussing.

Government Mandates:
The DDR-1 System will assist you in meeting compliance standards for government mandates requiring the elimination and destruction of sensitive information stored on magnetic media prior to disposal or recycling including:

  • PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry) Data Security Standard
  • NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media Sanitization
  • NIST SP 800-36
  • NIST SP 800-88>
  • HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)
  • PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)
  • GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
  • California Senate Bill 1386
