Blancco Highlights Data Erasure Management for Protecting Big Data and Achieving Regulatory Compliance

Atlanta, Ga., April 30, 2015 – Big Data brings big rewards, as well as big risks for costly breaches and regulatory non-compliance if not securely managed. Such risks are especially pronounced if data is not fully erased at vulnerable hardware- and software-related transitions throughout its lifecycle. At EMC World, May 4-7 at The Venetian in Las Vegas, Blancco, the global leader in data erasure technologies, will highlight how organizations and data centers can efficiently manage erasure processes for a variety of devices.

“With the growing need for governance of stored data fueled by regulations like ISO 27001, PCI DSS, SOX, HIPAA and the upcoming GDPR, it is critical to have a strategy for retaining and destroying data that can be implemented and automated throughout an organization,” said Sami Tuupanen, Director of Products and Services for Blancco. “Our software automates and manages erasure processes, while generating audit-ready reports for regulatory purposes.”

Blancco’s solutions remove data from devices throughout corporate and data center environments, including server arrays, mass storage devices and virtual machines on VMware platforms, along with targeted files and LUNs in live environments. At EMC World Booth 474, Blancco will demonstrate secure data removal from loose drives (RMA-8).

“Our RMA-8 product, combined with Blancco 5 software that securely erases loose HDDs and SSDs while retaining sector size formatting, means no more wasteful shredding of equipment or expensive service calls,” said Tuupanen.
