What is Blancco software?

Blancco is an international company that specialises in data removal and computer reuse. Blancco tools are used by many organisations worldwide. The software ensures that your company’s corporate or personal data does not fall into the wrong hands.

Accredited by the AIVD

The Blancco software is accredited by the Dutch National Signals Security Bureau (AIVD), among others. This is the only data removal software that complies with the strict requirements. This software ensures that data on data carriers is deleted 100% securely and permanently.

Compatible with various data carriers

We use the Blancco software to delete data from computers, laptops, tablets, servers, phones and other data carriers. The Blancco software uses state-of-the-art technology and provides a certificate guaranteeing data deletion.


How does Blancco software work?

It is 100% secure, but how does the Blancco software actually work? The Blancco software permanently removes data from any data carrier. This is done by overwriting data with zeros and ones. This is applied to the entire device, making all data irretrievable. When the data is removed from the device entirely, the software automatically creates a report/certificate. This certificate gives you confirmation of the removal of the data. This certificate can for example be shown during audits.


The 5 most important benefits of Blancco software

The Blancco software brings several advantages. We have listed the 5 most important benefits for you below.

Benefit 1: 100% secure

As mentioned earlier, Blancco software ensures 100% data security. In addition, the software also meets the legal standards required for data security.

Benefit 2: Clear

The Blancco software provides clear reports. The report includes proof of deletion. It also provides relevant information regarding the deleted data.

Benefit 3: Environmentally responsible

By deleting data with this software, you are also being environmentally responsible. The devices from which the data is deleted can be used again. In this way, e-waste is minimised.

Benefit 4: Cost-saving

After removing the data, the devices are reusable. You can use these devices to give to new employees. Of course, you can also choose to sell the devices.

Benefit 5: Prevents fines, claims, and image damage

Why specialist software? Standard data wiping is simply not enough to guarantee 100% data security. Blancco does and thus prevents potentially high fines, claims and image damage for your company.
