Reclaim more drives & devices

Redeploy, sell, recycle, or dispose of your decommissioned IT assets—confident that data is forever gone.

As the industry’s most tested and certified data sanitization software, Blancco Drive Eraser provides regulation-compliant data destruction for HDDs, SSDs, and NVMes across the widest range of devices—loose drives, servers, desktops and laptops (including Chromebooks and Apple T2 computers), and more.

Automate drive erasure—locally or remotely

Easy integrations and customizable workflows allow you to sanitize drives and devices at scale and across geographies.

  • Efficiently erase devices in office, on prem, in remote data centers (even with drives in rack!), or employee home offices.
  • Integrate with your ITSM/ITAM solution (such as ServiceNow) or existing AMS/ERP system.
  • You can even automate different erasure standards for different situations.

Choose your industry erasure standard

Adhere to company policies and certify erasure to your standard of choice, whether NIST Purge/Clear, DoD 5220.22-M/ECE, BSI-GS/GSE, our Blancco SSD Erasure standard, or another industry guideline.

Blancco Drive Eraser is NIST 800-88 Compliance Verified by ADISA for HDDs and SSDs and supports the new IEEE 2883-2022 standard. Each erasure is verified, with digitally signed certificates centrally stored to ease auditing.

SSD erasure

Tackle SSDs confidently

Blancco’s SSD Erasure method (Patent No. 9286231) overcomes functionality differences across SSD vendors.

Regardless of SSD make or model, Blancco’s secure erasure methods leverage firmware-level commands to ensure data is written across the full logical capacity of the drive (and not just compressed). It includes multiple random overwrites, freeze lock removal, and full verification.
