Blancco’s leading enterprise solution sets a new standard in secure and sustainable information lifecycle management

AUSTIN and LONDON, 20 December: Blancco, the industry standard in data erasure and mobile lifecycle solutions, today announced its consecutive victory as the ‘Best Security Solution of the Year’ at the prestigious Cyber Security Awards 2023, held in London last month. This accolade follows last year’s success, with Blancco Drive Eraser named ‘Best Security Product of the Year’ in 2022.

Blancco’s enterprise security solution has securely erased over 250 million devices, and it supports more than 25 erasure standards. Its solution has also been tested, certified and approved by over 13 governing bodies and leading organizations, including ADISA and the National Cyber Security Centre. Uniquely, Blancco’s offering also aids organizations’ sustainability goals by providing a secure, sustainable alternative to physical destruction; its suite of erasure products securely sanitized 107 million KG worth of devices in FY23, preventing needless e-waste and promoting circular economy engagement through IT asset reuse. 

The organization was one of four security solutions providers shortlisted in the category which looked at innovation, success and impact, market benefits and industry thought leadership. According to judges, scores were very close this year, as they aimed to reward ‘excellence and innovation’ within the cybersecurity industry – acknowledging both individuals and companies.

“All too often, organizations take an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ approach to handling end-of-life data and devices. Yet this is a significant business risk considering the volume of sensitive information that exists today across mobiles, laptops, PCs and servers,” said Russ Ernst, Chief Technology Officer at Blancco. “We’re thrilled to have been named Best Security Solution at the Cyber Security Awards, as we feel it’s critical that data sanitization and information lifecycle management is recognized as a key component in any organizations’ security posture.”

With over 35 patented or patent-pending ideas, Blancco offers the world’s most certified data erasure solution, providing more deployment options than any other software on the market. Its solution is certified to even the most recent and robust data sanitization standards including the new IEEE 2883-2022, which explores the specifics of removing data from modern storage technologies, enhancing secure recycling opportunities for devices.
