“Legislation, regulations and industry standards continue to grow more stringent worldwide regarding privacy of data on computers, tablets, smartphones, and other devices, and our solutions help organizations meet erasure requirements with confidence,” said Kim Väisänen, Managing Director of Blancco Group. ”The stakes are high, as non-compliance can mean exorbitant fines, civil liability, irreparable damage to brand image or even imprisonment.”

Common compliance requirements state that organizations must erase data from all IT assets before they are remarketed, reassigned or recycled. Data security mandates like ISO 27001, ISO 15408, PCI DSS, HIPAA, SOX and the upcoming European Union Data Protection Directive require proof of this data removal to avoid the risk of penalties.

“Blancco’s digitally signed erasure reports provide critical details as to when, how and by whom the erasure was done, as well as the asset serial number and hardware condition,” said Väisänen. “With third-party approved erasure processes and detailed reporting, Blancco’s certified data erasure products ensure both regulatory compliance and peace of mind for organizations throughout the public and private sectors.”
