The TUEV-approved Blancco Mobile
[http://www.blancco.com/en/products/total-data-erasure/mobile ] solution is already used by
many mobile operators and organizations to eliminate the risk of costly data breaches and
comply with standards and regulations pertaining to data privacy.

“The aim of the OTPC program is to reduce the social gap of education inequality and
increase literacy by analyzing students’ performance data recorded in the tablet. For
protecting children’s data on tablets, Blancco Mobile is a crucial solution. Not only
government and education, but corporations in Thailand should erase data on mobile devices
upon device disposal or replacement timing,” says Group Captain Anudith Nakornthap,
Minister of Information and Communication Technology.

“We are pleased to support a world-class IT and education program with our Blancco
Mobile software,” said Kim Vaisanen, CEO and Co-Founder of Blancco. “It is yet another
example of how Blancco Mobile plays a vital security role for securing children’s data.”

Beginning in 2014, Blancco Mobile will erase personal data on OTPC tablets for
elementary, junior high and senior high students throughout Thailand when tablets require
repair, replacement or disposal. This program covers 850,000 tablets that were already
distributed, plus another 1.7 million tablets scheduled for distribution in 2014.

Blancco Mobile [http://www.blancco.com/en/products/total-data-erasure/mobile ] is
designed to securely erase a smartphone’s internal and external memory. Restoring factory
settings does not ensure that data is permanently destroyed because data can still be
recovered afterwards. Blancco Mobile permanently erases all user data such as emails,
contacts and text messages, facilitating the safe reuse or resale of a tablet or
smartphone. Blancco Mobile
