New Erasure Solutions Launch Preemptive Strike Against Data Breaches

June 17, 2012

JOENSUU, Finland, June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Blancco’s latest proactive solutions for enterprise data erasure combine smoother
process automation with powerful multi-tasking capabilities.

In the war against data breaches, enterprises often focus on malware or hackers,
overlooking the very real threat from improperly disposed electronic equipment. According
to Privacy Rights Clearinghouse data, 25% of data breaches in 2011 were the result of
lost, discarded or stolen stationary or portable devices, representing 40% of all exposed
records. With its new Blancco 5 data erasure software and centralized Management Console,
Blancco [http://www.blancco.com ], the global leader in data erasure and computer reuse
solutions, helps enterprises proactively fight against costly data breach fines and
related risks. These secure erasure solutions support fast, simple and complete data
removal from electronic devices ranging from laptops and PCs to storage arrays in high-end
servers for data center environments.

“As the digital universe is doubling every 18 months and the spectrum of device
platforms is rapidly becoming more and more fragmented, efficiency, extensive platform
coverage and automation are an absolute must for present and future data erasure needs,”
said Kim Vaisanen, CEO and Co-Founder of Blancco. “Blancco 5
[http://www.blancco.com/en/products/total-data-erasure/blancco-5 ], combined with our new
Blancco Management Console, takes process automation, execution and security of data
erasure to an advanced level. It also offers an extremely fast and user-friendly
experience with upgraded interfaces, dashboards, and other efficiency-oriented features.

“As workplace data and electronic devices proliferate, increasing the threat of data
exposure, companies and public organizations need a solution that is flexible enough to
erase multiple hardware platforms while providing user friendly, centralized
administration and robust reporting.”

Blancco 5′s intuitive interface allows users to easily customize complex erasure
processes. Its high speed, simultaneous erasure of multiple drives keeps valuable IT
resources productive, and enhanced hardware detection contributes to detailed erasure
reports that can streamline audit procedures in regulated industries like healthcare,
banking and retail that require data removal for retired, disposed and reused hardware.

Used with Blancco 5, the Management Console

further streamlines data security and erasure processes by providing complete online
management and automation from a central console supported by user-friendly dashboards and
widgets. Erasure policy management and data erasure reporting are two of the many
processes automated through Blancco Management Console. This solution also integrates with
other Blancco products for erasure of LUNs, flash drives, and mobile devices like
smartphones and tablets.

Blancco Management Console centrally stores erasure reports to support asset and chain
of custody tracking and provide transparency for software and hardware audits to prove
erasure compliance and avoid regulatory fines. It also integrates with asset management
and ERP systems and supports export and email of erasure reports, depending on
administrator-defined user rights.
