JOENSUU, Finland, February 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
New document from global data erasure authority informs recycling market about secure,
efficient mass erasure of mobile devices
Blancco [http://www.blancco.com ], the global leader in data erasure and computer
reuse solutions, is working with international industry leaders to inform the recycling
market and others about the importance of efficient and secure mass erasure of smartphones
and tablets. As part of that initiative, the company has developed a comprehensive white
paper [http://www.blancco.com/en/solution-for-ITADs ] on the topic for IT asset disposal
specialists (ITADs) and recyclers to help their customers stay in compliance with data
protection laws and regulations.
In addition, Blancco will exhibit at the Mobile World Congress
[http://campaign.blancco.com/mwc ] (MWC) February 25-28 in Barcelona, an international
thought leadership gathering to explore the world impact of mobile technology, including
building awareness of the importance of secure data erasure from mobile devices. Blancco
will attend as a member of the Device Renewal Forum (DRF
[http://www.blancco.com/en/company-info/press-releases/2012/drf ]), an industry group
dedicated to expand the global growth of the device renewal market.
“More than 1.68 billion wireless devices are produced yearly, but less than 10 percent
of them are recycled or renewed,” said Kim Vaisanen, CEO and Co-Founder of Blancco. “Our
work with DRF, our involvement in MWC and our release of the mobile white paper for ITAD
specialists are all part of our strategy to inform the recycling market about how to
efficiently and effectively remove all data from mobile devices, and how the market can
benefit from Blancco Mobile [http://www.blancco.com/en/products/total-data-erasure/mobile
], our mobile data erasure solution.”
The new white paper [http://www.blancco.com/en/solution-for-ITADs ], “Managing and
Automating Data Erasure for Mobile Devices:
Strategies for Recyclers and IT Asset Disposal Specialists,” discusses the risks of
improper decommissioning, the advantages of advanced data erasure with detailed reporting
and audit trails, and methods with which ITADs can help their customers stay in compliance
with laws and regulations.
“The ability of ITADs to erase data simultaneously from different types of smartphone
and tablet platforms is essential to productive operations,” said Vaisanen. “For example,
a single operator can erase over 1,000 smartphones each day with our erasure units, which
also automatically send a detailed erasure report back to a central management console.
This report provides critical details for customer compliance and potential resale.”
Blancco’s booth will be in Hall 5, Stand 5E90 at MWC where the company will showcase
its Blancco Mobile product, which has been nominated as a finalist in the Global Mobile
Awards Competition being held at MWC. To set up a meeting visit
