Award-winning company introduces new information for corporate and government leaders on IT asset erasure best practices and processes

Blancco, the global leader in data erasure and computer reuse solutions, is publishing new documents to share its data erasure management expertise with business and government leaders, and will introduce them at CeBIT, the world's largest trade fair showcasing digital IT and telecommunications solutions, March 5-9, 2013, in Hannover, Germany. The publications include the first edition of the company's newsletter, "Data Erasure News," and a white paper exploring the challenges and options for effective, secure erasure of solid state disks (SSDs) increasingly used in servers and desktops.

"We have been helping organizations secure their valuable data for more than 15 years," said Thomas Wirth, General Manager of Blancco Central Europe GmbH. "CeBIT offers one of the greatest opportunities to share our expertise with key decision-makers about the importance of secure data erasure management. The topic is especially important today when the new EU data protection directive is forthcoming."

The newsletter will answer key questions from organizational leaders about the why's and how's of effective data erasure management in today's IT environment.

The CeBIT 2013 theme - "Shareconomy" - highlights the need for secure data erasure in a global economy where cloud computing enables sharing of knowledge and IT resources across traditional boundaries.
