ABBOTSFORD, BC, Nov. 26, 2014 /CNW/ - Blancco, the global leader in data erasure and computer reuse solutions, has launched a Partner Program to support Canadian providers of professional IT asset disposal (ITAD) services. Joining as the first member of the ITAD Partner Program is GEEP, a global provider of safe, secure reuse and recycling of waste electric and electronic equipment (WEEE) services.
Blancco's ITAD Partner Program was created for ITAD, electronics recycling and leasing organizations that are industry leaders, such as GEEP. The program is designed to streamline erasure processes required for safe reuse, disposal and destruction of IT equipment. It also addresses increasingly complex regulations for ITAD specialists and their enterprise customers with solutions that provide auditable erasure reports.

"The Partner Program supports the commitment our partners have to professionally protect customer data with world-class solutions that ensure legislative compliance."

Working with Blancco Partners, enterprises can feel confident of addressing these calls, as well as amendments to PIPEDA and the forthcoming European Union General Data Protection Regulation.
