Fujitsu announced Mag EraSURE ME-P3 Version 2, Fujitsu’s latest secure degaussing solution for the permanent erasure of all magnetically recorded data on hard disk drives (HDDs) and other storage devices.
Mag EraSURE ME-P3 Version 2 completely erases sensitive data embedded several layers down that might not have been deleted using conventional methods, on hard disk drives, tapes and other magnetically recorded media, in just 15 seconds – a speed three times faster than earlier models – and adds support for the VHS tape format.
Fujitsu’s Mag EraSURE utilizes patented rare-earth magnet technology to permanently degauss magnetically recorded information. It enables customers to degauss large quantities of HDDs and other back up tapes to help properly dispose of sensitive data and comply with HIPAA, SOX, PCI DSS and other regulations. In addition to offering degaussing speeds unmatched by any other solution available today, ME-P3 Version 2 decreases cycle times even further by eliminating the need for customers to remove the drive from its canister before degaussing it
The new version is also 30 percent smaller and 22 percent lighter than previous editions, providing customers with a superior solution in a more compact form factor. Fujitsu’s Mag EraSURE ME-P3 product portfolio meets Department of Defense requirements for destroying magnetically recorded data, and the ME-P3 is listed on the National Security Agency’s Evaluated Products List: NSA/CSS EPL-9-12.
