FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Atlanta, Georgia)– According to reports from the International Data Corporation, digital storage has surged by 23 percent annually over the last 30 years. Globally, the current amount of data stored in digital format equates to more than 8 trillion gigabytes with the figure expected to reach 40 trillion by decade’s end. While shared media comprises much of this information, a significant portion is considered sensitive and falls under a number of protection regulations. With this growing volume in mind, Ryan Lobo of Proton Data Security has launched the latest version of the company’s T-4 degausser.
“Our T-4 degausser offers an array of advantages over other options in its category,” affirmed Lobo, “and it’s effective at erasing all forms of magnetic media in use today. Designed to meet the strictest standards currently in place, the T-4 is on lists of products approved by the NSA, DoD, CESG, CE and NATO to name a few. At the same time, it’s lightweight, portable and simple to operate, making it the perfect solution for virtually all data erasure needs.”
Based on information from the company website, the T-4 hard drive degausser employs patented reverse polarity EMP technology, meaning the system generates both positive and negative 20,000 Gauss fields as opposed to single-directional models. Erasure is said to be effective on longitudinal and perpendicular recorded media alike in compliance with FACTA, HIPAA, GLB and DPA standards as well as others. The unit operates automatically with cycles ranging between 45 and 60 seconds.
Among the new features on the latest T-4 model are an LCD screen and internal Gaussmeter. This recently incorporated internal software provides performance verification with feedback visible to users via the LCD screen. Previous models and similar products typically require separate instruments for confirming field strength and ongoing recertification to ensure compliance with regulations.

Concluded Lobo, “The T-4 is the strongest hard drive eraser available and allows for complete automation. Because the drives are top-loaded, additional systems can be added below the unit. We’ve been helping clients protect their sensitive data for more than 25 years now, and during that time, we’ve established ourselves as a trusted source for data security products. This new version of our T-4 carries on our commitment to providing the latest technology and security solutions, and we will continue to develop new products as our industry evolves.”
