Blancco Solutions: Maintain SOX Compliance & Reduce Risk

Keeping data secure throughout its lifecycle is critical, but security is not enough. In the likely event of a data breach, there are two major ways Blancco can reduce your organization’s attack surface, mitigate risk and store data while meeting compliance with data protection and privacy laws and regulations, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) of 2002. SOX compliance is important to establish timelines, prevent data tampering and track data access.

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 provides transparency into a company’s performance and protects its shareholders and the general public from corporate fraud.

The SOX Act only applies to specific data; however, many companies don’t understand the data they do have. 85% of the average company’s data is ‘Dark Data,’ or information that is no longer useful or required, but could be sensitive in nature.

Your organization should have documentation in place that defines the required retention period of all data. This documentation should be based on both internal and external compliance mandates. Anything that does not fall within that requirement should be removed on a regular basis.

The Blancco Active Erasure solution suite, including Blancco File Eraser, Blancco LUN Eraser and Blancco Virtual Machine Eraser can actively reduce the amount of data across your organization — with no downtime.
