Blancco collaborates with Lenovo for cybersecurity

Blancco Technology Group, experts in data erasure and mobile lifecycle solutions, has announced a global collaboration with Lenovo.

Lenovo ThinkShield Data Erasure by Blancco addresses the need for enterprises to manage the exponential growth of data that increases their threat risk, liability, and data management costs. It also minimises manual procedures for tracking, erasing, and reporting on a wide range of IT assets and storage devices.

Blancco allows Lenovo’s enterprise customers to sanitise data that are no longer needed, including redundant, obsolete, and trivial (ROT) data. Not only does this allow enterprises to minimize data storage needs, it also enhances data security by reducing an organization’s attack surface across storage and endpoint devices.

Nima Baiati, Executive Director and General Manager, Cybersecurity Solutions, Intelligent Devices Group, Lenovo said, “the pandemic changed the way we work, which, in turn, changed the rules of security. Corporate data was no longer protected behind the security perimeter. We also needed to provide a comprehensive security portfolio to address these new challenges. Blancco’s data erasure enables us to provide our customers with a security offering that can eradicate files and folders within or across almost any device, including drives, LUNs, removable media, mobile, endpoint devices, servers, and the cloud.”

Incorporating Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles into data deletion processes is a pivotal facet of contemporary digital practices, particularly concerning the circular economy surrounding devices. By prioritising responsible data deletion, organisations using ThinkShield actively contribute to a circular economy, fostering ethical and sustainable practices in the management of digital devices.

Jim Elder, Blancco Vice President of Global Pathways added, “We’re delighted to work with Lenovo to enhance the capabilities of its ThinkShield security offering. Through our collaboration, we’ll work with Lenovo to address customer pain points, including protecting data through the reduction of the threat footprint, minimizing manual processes, and meeting compliance with global data privacy laws and regulations.”

Approved by 14 governing bodies and supporting compliance with more than 25 standards, Blancco’s data erasure creates and stores reports for compliance, audits, reporting, verification, and retention purposes. These reports are protected and digitally signed to prove regulatory compliance.
