Blancco Helps Organizations Meet the Challenge of Efficient, Secure Data Erasure from Mobile Devices

Blancco Mobile solution brings data erasure best practices to mobile devices; white paper provides guidelines for achieving world-class IT security and compliance

JOENSUU, Finland, July 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Gartner predicts that sales of smartphones and tablets will pass one billion in 2013, and these devices are no longer relegated to personal use. The majority of mobile devices now used by today's mobile workforce are often loaded with sensitive corporate, customer and employee data. Blancco, the global leader in data erasure and computer reuse solutions, is helping companies around the world securely manage the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend.

"With data erasure best practices and tools like third-party TÜV approved Blancco Mobile, we are helping organizations eliminate the risk of costly data breaches and comply with standards and regulations," said Kim Väisänen, CEO and Co-Founder of Blancco. "Our customers have implemented effective policy and processes to erase data securely when ownership of a smartphone changes, or when BYOD tablets and smartphones are end-of-lifecycle."

Blancco has developed a white paper offering guidelines to ensure secure and efficiently managed erasure of data from mobile devices, with minimal resources required and no business disruption.

The paper outlines the advantages that certified data erasure-a software approach for overwriting and eliminating all electronic information-offers over physical destruction of devices, factory resetting and less comprehensive overwriting approaches.

"Providing verifiable proof of data erasure is another important aspect of our solution," Väisänen said. "Our white paper discusses this and other critical details of compliance. We are pleased to share it with organizations wanting to achieve excellence in data security."
