Xperien has announced that it can now provide absolute data erasure with a 100% tamper-proof audit trail to ensure total compliance. The company has partnered with Blancco, a leading global provider for secure data erasure solutions, to help customers erase data securely across every IT asset.
Each erasure is verified and certified, resulting in a tamper-proof Certificate of Erasure to prove compliance with local, national and global data protection regulations. Blancco’s data erasure solutions have been tested, certified, approved and recommended by 18 governing bodies around the world.
“As a specialist in data erasure and diagnostics, Blancco focuses on aspects of data compliance and cybersecurity that companies of all sizes need to take into consideration,” said Xperien Business Development Manager Francois Engelbrecht.
“Blancco provides thousands of businesses with an absolute line of defence against costly security breaches, as well as verification of regulatory compliance through a 100% tamper-proof audit trail.”
Blancco data erasure software provides complete sanitisation by overwriting data onto all sectors of the device. Many overwriting programs cannot access the entire drive, including hidden or locked areas, such as the Host Protected Area (HPA), Device Configuration Overlay (DCO) and remapped sectors, often leaving data intact.
“Through our certified data erasure process, organisations now have a secure method to erase data on storage devices – regardless of underlying technology – in a cost-effective, secure and eco-friendly manner,” added Engelbrecht.
