The Best Degaussers of 2020


When the computer deletes information, it still remains on its hard drive and is therefore still forensically recoverable. More importantly, physically damaging a hard drive brings no guarantee that the information on it will be destroyed. In fact, the information can still be recovered even if the exterior has been severely damaged. For instance, the hard drive on the space shuttle Columbia was disintegrated while reentering Earth but was easily recovered. The hard drive was sent plummeting to Earth after the explosion, exposing it to radiation, chemicals, and rocket fuel for some time before it was finally recovered.

When the recovery team did find it, they were still able to recover almost 100% of the information on it. There is only one method to ensure that the information on hard drives gets completely eliminated is to use a magnetic device that will strip it of its memory. The tool to get this job done is a degausser. Whitaker Brothers offer various types of degaussers that strip hard drives of their data so that you can ensure your sensitive information is completely erased.

  1. 105 HARD DRIVE DEGAUSSER – $17,758.00

    The Datastroyer 105 weighs 128 lbs, making it lightweight and perfect for tabletop or floor operation. Using Electromagnetic Pulse technology (EMP) to strip hard drive clean of their data, this product ensures that the information stored on hard drives effectively and efficiently gets destroyed. While ensuring the permanent loss of hard drive data, the automatic on/off operation enables you to simply insert media into the chamber and push the start button. Highest security in its class, the Datastroyer 105 un-aligns magnetic fields within media material and confirms its powerful erasing capabilities.


      1. NSA approved 
      2. Erasure cycle time of 45-60 seconds 
      3. Uses Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) technology to strip hard drives of data
  2. PROTON 1100 DEGAUSSING WAND – $515.00

    The Proton 1100 Degausser is a small and portable wand that comes alongside a shielded case to provide safe storage and prevent unwanted erasures from occurring. The case is made of tempered steel and weighs 14 oz, with dimensions of 5”L x 0.7”H x 2.2”W. The wand consists of a powerful magnetic circuit that fully erases magnetic information stored on disk drives, disk packs, and any magnetic media with a flat surface. Proton 1100 has a magnetic field intensity of 5,000 Oe. NSA approves the wand for magnetic media data erasure.

    This is a manual hand-held degaussing wand that is portable and low cost. It is a great model if you have a low volume of hard drive to degauss. The wand is truly convenient because there are no power requirements, so you can degauss magnetic media wherever and whenever you need to.


      1. NSA approved 
      2. Small and easily portable 
      3. The wand weighs only 4oz, alongside the shielded case that weighs 14o
  3. 105 HARD DRIVE DRAWER DEGAUSSER – $5,830.00

The 10 Hard Drive Drawer Degausser is a highly portable and compact device that removes the information on hard drives in less than five seconds. In addition, this product has the ability to erase the data of any hard drive or magnetic media up to 5,000 Oe that is capable of fitting into the drawer (1” x 4.3” x6”). It is light in weight and is perfect for tabletop or floor operation. The automatic on/off operation further enables convenience.


    1. Destruction of confidential, sensitive and classified data in accordance with recognized standards 
    2. Meets data sanitization standards set by NIST and the US Department of Defense 
    3. Operates at altitudes up to 25,000 feet
