Today Fujitsu Europe Ltd launch the Mag EraSURE™ ME-P3/P3E designed to speedily and efficiently erase data from magnetically recorded media. They will be working alongside Verity Systems as their core distributor to draw on their wealth of sales, marketing and technical experience with this product and within this channel to establish themselves and boost sales. MagEraSURE ME-P3/P3E is on both the National Security Agency (NSA) and Department of Defense (DoD) approved lists of degausser products.

Mag EraSURE ME-P3/P3E is an ideal solution for industries who have a requirement for erasing and destroying data that is of paramount importance whether it be stored on 2.5” or 3.5” hard disk drives, removable disks or backup tapes. Typical markets with highly sensitive and confidential information include the financial, medical, education, government and legal arenas.

The Fujitsu Mag EraSURE utilizes a rare earth permanent magnet to erase magnetically recorded information. Data becomes permanently unrecoverable by commercial means once exposed to the powerful magnet in the device. In addition to purging recorded information on the storage device, including servo and calibration data, the degausser also destroys most read/write heads. This process can either be done through an electronic one button approach or in the case of a power failure a crank is supplied with the ME-P3E for manual operation. The unit is supplied on a trolley for convenient use and storage when not in use.

The rise of the digital age was accompanied by a dramatic increase in the creation and storage of sensitive customer data," said Mike Nelson, General Manager, Fujitsu Europe Limited. "From an operational perspective this can cause challenges, one of which is how to securely dispose of confidential information after it has served its useful purpose. Mag EraSURE is the solution to that problem offering users a fast, easy and reliable way to know that their information won't fall into the wrong hands. Verity Systems are a key partner for Fujitsu Europe and we look forward to working with them with this product particularly in these data sensitive critical times.

David Tucker, Verity Systems Managing Director, said “Being able to offer the MagEraSURE in addition to our range of erasers will offer true value to our customers in this data protective market. The unit offers permanent erasure and benefits from 24/7 operation and can be operated without a power supply, unusual in such products yet essential to many applications.”

About Erasing:

Data is stored in magnetic media, such as hard drives, floppy disks and magnetic tape. This is achieved by very small areas on the data surface called magnetic domains which change their magnetic alignment to be in the direction of an applied magnetic field. Degaussing, commonly called erasure, leaves the domains in random patterns with no preference to orientation, thereby rendering previous data unrecoverable. There are some domains whose magnetic alignment is not randomized after degaussing and the information that these domains represent is commonly called magnetic remanence. Proper degaussing will ensure that there is insufficient magnetic remanence to reconstruct the data. Fujitsu's MagErasure ME-P3/P3E is a device that can generate a magnetic field for degaussing magnetic storage media.
