Renting a degausser is the best data security decision you haven’t made yet

When it comes to disposing of old hard drives which have broken down or are no longer needed, there are multiple methods at your disposal (no pun intended). Smash it with a hammer, incinerate it, shred it into tiny pieces – the choice is yours. But if you’re looking for a method which is quick, effortless, and cheaper than alternatives, it’s time you looked into degausser rental.

A degausser uses a powerful electromagnet to permanently erase and destroy end-of-life hard drives. It’s more effective than shredding or crushing or any other form of physical destruction, because it magnetically removes the data from drives instead of simply smashing that data into pieces so there’s zero chance of it ever being recovered. Because a degausser keeps the drive intact after erasure, it can be disassembled and the valuable materials inside, such as rare-earth neodymium magnets, can be recycled for their full value.

So why rental? Degaussers are great value if you need to destroy a large amount of hard drives – a degausser will quickly pay for itself versus something like an industrial shredder, where a typical annual contract can run into thousands or even tens of thousands – but not such a great deal if you’re only looking to get rid of a small amount of drives. That’s where rental comes in. From as little as £350 per week, just a small fraction of the cost to buy, you can rent a degausser to meet all your destruction needs. For example, let’s say you’ve upgraded the PCs in your business – now you’ve got a batch of old drives full of sensitive data. Why not rent a degausser for a week and get them securely erased?

But it gets better! With our rent-to-buy scheme, if you decide you’d like to make your rental degausser a permanent fixture in your office, the rental costs you’ve accrued can be put towards the cost of purchase. It really is a no-brainer if you’re interested in top-notch data security. Try before you buy, and get a great deal if you decide to take the plunge.
