As part of the initiative, Blancco is offering a comprehensive white paper, "Data Erasure Solutions for Data Center and Cloud Computing Security," for download.
"Data centers contain massive amounts of customer data that is protected by industry standards and regulations like PCI DSS, HIPAA in the US and EU directives," said Kim Väisänen, CEO and Co-Founder of Blancco. "Given these compliance mandates and the need to protect sensitive data, certified, efficient and professional data erasure is now more important than ever."
According to Väisänen, Blancco offers three key advantages to data centers:
- Full control and auditability of the data erasure process through detailed reports and centralized management.
- Savings through reuse of existing hardware and configurations like logical drives (LUNs).
- Opportunities to offer new services such as secure data erasure after data migration or a customer contract ends.
"As data centers grow more complex, we want to spotlight the advantages our solutions offer," Väisänen said. "To eliminate the need for multiple erasure products, data centers with high-end server and SAN environments need a tool that erases a broad range of hardware like Netapp, IBM, Oracle (SUN), HP, EMC, DELL, and Hitachi, as well as Microsoft software. Our solutions are tailored to meet these requirements. They also support virtual environments from both VMware and Microsoft based on vSphere (ESXi) and Hyper-V, respectively."
Blancco's solutions can handle the different levels of data erasure required in a data center: File, LUN, Disk, Server and Storage.
"We are the only provider of a complete portfolio of certified solutions for data erasure from smartphones to mainframes," Väisänen said. "We look forward to continuing our work to help data centers meet their challenges."
