[http://www.ia.nato.int/niapc/Product/Blancco-erasure-client-4.10HMG_430 ] recommendation
of the software for erasing data at NATO Secret security levels and follows a similar NATO
approval of a Blancco product in 2007. The software also appears in the prestigious NATO
Information Assurance Product Catalogue (NIACP), providing users with confidence of
complete removal of data from magnetic hard disks on PCs and laptops targeted for
reassignment or disposal.

purposes, as well as detailed information on hardware health for decisions regarding
resale and reuse.”

productivity, Blancco’s erasure software has passed extensive disk forensic tests. It also
recently received approval from the Norwegian National Security Authority (NSM
) for erasure of drives intended for declassification and release for
commercial use, including data at Confidential, Secret and Top Secret security levels. In
addition, Blancco’s erasure software has been approved several times since 2004 by the
