Since 1985, Data Security, Inc. has been the world leader of National Security Agency (NSA) approved degaussers for the Department of Defense (DoD). As data storage technologies continue to evolve, the NSA continues to develop new standards for erasing, sanitizing and disposing of data storage media. Through innovative design, we hold several patents for hard drive degaussers, tape degaussers and hard drive destruction equipment. We will continue to develop and deliver new products that meet the NSA's evolving standards.
Data Security, Inc., is an American owned manufacturing company located in Lincoln, Nebraska. We design, manufacture and support our product lines:
- degaussing equipment to erase classified and sensitive data stored on magnetic tapes and hard drives, and
- destruction equipment used to physically damage hard drives, thumb drives, and solid state storage devices.
All of our products are reviewed for performance by the National Security Agency (NSA) and are listed on their approved Equipment Products Lists.
Both the commercial and government sector look to the policies of the NSA for magnetic media sanitization and destruction. Our leadership in this area continues to open new markets outside the DoD to those governments and companies who must comply with security policies set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), as well as privacy legislation like Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
