Download Solution OverviewGet Started for Free

Enterprises around the world are struggling to find the best method for data sanitization across their full IT asset portfolios. Simply deleting or reformatting data leaves sensitive information behind, and most enterprises need an audit trail to prove compliance with data retention and sanitization regulations.

Software-based data erasure is a data sanitization method recommended by Gartner, NIST and ISO that allows for assets to be reused, resold or donated after the erasure process. Blancco data erasure solutions work across the entire data lifecycle to guarantee complete data sanitization and prove compliance.

Data Erasure Throughout the Data Lifecycle

data management lifecycle

  • Erase ROT (Redundant, Obsolete or Trivial) data on laptops, PCs, LUNs or VMs
  • Erase temporary data – project files, sensitive client information, etc. in files, partitions or on-demand, or schedule file removal to run automatically through Group Policy / Task Scheduler
  • Erase data to meet retention policies- E.g. financial or other sensitive processing data (e.g. credit card information) that needs to be removed on a specific, ongoing basis from your systems; or remove data at the end of a specified time frame as required by legislation (e.g. HIPAA)
