- New Offices in Spain, Italy, and Canada Address Compliance Awareness and Challenges Through Certified Data Erasure Solutions With Broad Hardware Support and Reporting Functionality
After a nearly 40% jump in sales for 2010 fueled by an increasing number of global and regional data security regulations, Blancco, the global leader in data erasure and end-of-lifecycle solutions, has announced the opening of three new area offices. The Blancco offices in Spain, Italy and Canada will offer increased support for a growing customer base in those areas, while building awareness about regulatory requirements and the importance of data erasure as IT security best practice.
"More than 50 countries have specific data security mandates, as well as broader entities like the European Union and Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council, and erasure of data from electronic media set for retirement or reassignment is often a requirement for compliance," said Kim Vaisanen, CEO of Blancco. "Despite these growing legislative and industry demands, mostcompanies still do not have an official data erasure policy, leaving them open to costly data breaches in terms of fines and damaged reputation. With 13 offices around the world, Blancco is committed to helping companies secure data and meet or exceed regulatory compliance."
