In today’s modern storage environment, data passes through multiple organizations, systems and media. As a result, government, defense and intelligence agencies – and the civilian companies contracted with them – must safeguard sensitive data from breaches throughout the entire data lifecycle. Government security agencies have developed data sanitization standards, including the US NIST 800-88.1 and older DoD 5220.22-M, complemented by UK, German and other government standards. To protect sensitive data in transit and at rest, Blancco guarantees absolute data sanitization of all IT assets, including servers, desktop/laptop computers, smartphones, tablets, SSDs and virtual drives. Blancco’s Data Eraser data erasure solutions represent a last line of defense in the disclosure and misuse of confidential, electronic information and helps you prove compliance with audit-ready reporting.

Blancco Data Eraser solutions meet the data sanitization recommendations set forth by US NIST 800-88.1 and older DoD 5220.22-M, allowing your organization to reduce the volume of data being retained. The following data erasure solutions are recommended for government agencies:

protect information all times

Manage a Secure Data Lifecycle

Your organization carries a massive amount of customer, employee and internal information across a variety of drives and devices – both within and outside your network. Eventually, all information must come to an end – where storing data becomes more of a liability, and cost, than of value to your organization. With Blancco, you can prevent unauthorized disclosure of this information by removing it all together. Blancco makes erasing your data easy with our intuitive and flexible software that can map and automate your privacy, security and compliance requirements. This allows you to permanently delete confidential data at the right time – in a tamper-proof environment – to protect the employees, consumers and intellectual property within your organization.

Meet Data Sanitization Standards

The US NIST 800-88.1 and DoD 5220.22-M contain data sanitizing and data destruction standards that specify requirements to overwrite every byte of storage space – breaking down any sectors and partitions – and testing to verify all data has been overwritten. With Blancco’s patented SSD and 21 government approved erasure methods, you can ensure these standards are met.
