Transcript

Introducing Blancco’s patent-pending Two-Way Communication technology — a way to easily integrate Blancco products into your existing APIs and asset management systems for data sharing, automated process flow and user management.

Two-Way Communication consists of three components: Blancco Drive Eraser, Blancco Management Console and your asset management system (AMS).

Two-Way Communication enables your AMS to request the following from Blancco Management Console and Blancco Drive Eraser:

  • Custom fields
  • Information on disks
  • Asset reports
  • Automated reset and shutdown
  • And specific erasure options, including your choice of erasure standard.

Two-Way Communication also reduces the number of necessary operator inputs, lessening the likelihood for human error.
