Data erasure software certified by U.K. government.
Blancco Ltd., a leader in data erasure and end-of-life cycle solutions, has announced that CESG Information Assurance and Certification Services (part of the U.K. government communications headquarters) has approved the latest version of Blancco's data erasure software.
The software has been found to meet all of the criteria for secure erasure of magnetic media in accordance with CESG and HMG Infosec standards following independent testing carried out by QinetiQ, under contract to CESG. As a result, Blancco is approved for government use to securely erase protected data. Furthermore, Blancco says its 4.8 HMG client erasure software has been added to the CESG Directory of Infosec Assured Products.
According to Tony Collis, managing director of Blancco U.K., “Following our certification from CESG in 2003 and 2006, this latest approval in 2008 is part of our ongoing investment to offer our clients, in both the private and public sector, best in class secure erasure solutions.”
