Award-winning data erasure company sponsors Europe's largest networking event for computer trading industry

Blancco, the global leader in data erasure and computer reuse solutions, will join computer trading industry leaders at the European Broker Meeting (EBM). The event, held Nov. 15-16 in Budapest, will offer more than 400 computer brokers, traders, IT wholesalers and refurbishers the opportunity to learn about technology developments for the computer trading industry, including Blancco's certified data erasure solutions for a range of IT devices and administration scenarios.

A sponsor of the EBM and a Gold Member of the European Broker Site, which organizes the event, Blancco will host a pre-EBM reception Nov. 15 for its European Information Technology Asset Disposal (ITAD) customers and prospects. At the reception, Blancco looks to show its appreciation for those who have contributed to the company's success and offers cocktails, birthday cake and conversation on current hot topics in data erasure to celebrate the company's 15th anniversary, as well as another milestone, the recent naming of Kim Väisänen, CEO and co-founder, as Finland's national winner of Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year award.

"We look forward to sharing how Blancco addresses data security for the proliferation of mobile devices, as well as special requirements for mass storage situations, among other developments," said Väisänen, who goes on to compete in the Global Entrepreneur of the Year awards in Monte Carlo next summer. "And we appreciate the EBM's networking format. It gives us a chance to discuss, in an informal setting, how Blancco is an ITAD's best choice and the industry's de facto standard for securing sensitive data and embracing data erasure best practices."

EBM attendees are invited to meet with a Blancco representative by setting up an appointment through the online meeting tool on the EBM website.
