Blancco Prevents Recovery of Data from Lost and Stolen PCs

Blancco has released Blancco Stealth Cleaner 2.0, a technologically advanced erasure software. It is highly secure and is designed to safeguard your data if your laptop or PC is lost or stolen. The software is suited for securing logistics, a critical phase in the equipment lifecycle where an alarming number of PCs are misplaced or stolen. The unique automatic lock and erase function renders data recovery impossible ensuring maximum security.

With the recent spate of high profile laptop theft cases, companies are waking up to the risk of their data falling into the wrong hands. Mounting federal and state regulations have also put pressure on companies to take adequate steps to properly destroy data. However, data leaks continue to wreak havoc in many organsiations.

Blancco Stealth Cleaner has been uniquely designed to offer complete security by mitigating the risk of data leaks if a PC has been lost or stolen. It has the unique ability to lock the hard drive, erase the hard drive or perform both, depending on the user settings. These actions are activated when an incorrect password is entered. Blancco Stealth Cleaner can also be programmed to be executed on a specific date, a useful feature when retired IT assets are scheduled to be transported to a recycling facility on a certain date. The software can be simultaneously installed in several PCs within seconds, making it far more effective and efficient than encryption.
