To help enterprises and cloud computing service providers achieve tighter data security, Blancco, the global leader in data erasure and computer reuse solutions, has introduced Blancco vCloud Eraser.

Designed in conjunction with the VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) Program, Blancco vCloud Eraser adds an extra dimension to vCloud Director's security foundation. With seamless integration and access through the vCloud Director user interface, Blancco vCloud Eraser automatically destroys all data when a virtual server―vApp― is deleted and provides a detailed report as proof.

"Standard forensic tools can recover data from deleted virtual servers, as can occur with physical servers, so full erasure is necessary for complete security," said Markku Willgren, president, Blancco U.S. operations. "With reporting and auditing features, vCloud Eraser helps enterprises and cloud services customers comply with internal and external data privacy and destruction regulations, while also allowing cloud hosting providers to offer value-added services."

A sponsor of the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) Congress 2013, December 4-5 in Orlando, Fla., Blancco will discuss vCloud Eraser and its other erasure solutions for data centers at booth #107. The company will present short videos on 1) why data erasure is important in the vCloud Director environment and 2) how Blancco vCloud Eraser accomplishes this technically. Booth visitors will have the chance to win a Kindle.
