Blancco LUN Eraser erases data securely within live storage environments

In today’s world of cloud computing, data security is vital. Blancco LUN Eraser prevents critical data leaks by erasing data securely from live storage environments.

Today’s increasing demand for state of the art data security
Worldwide revenue from public IT cloud services exceeded US$16 billion in 2009 and is forecast to reach US$55.5 billion in 2014, according to IDC 2010 research. This strong trend in the market will increase demand and requirements on the enterprise storage solutions in use. State of the art data security will be a requirement set by industry regulations and will act as a crucial service enabler for both internal and external customers and users.

Active data erasure for enterprise storage solutions
Blancco LUN Eraser allows internal and external service providers to securely erase individual drives as well as logical drives (such as LUNs) in an active storage environment. Blancco LUN Eraser erases logical and physical drives detected by the operating system (Windows or Unix). LUN Eraser for Unix supports several different operating systems. LUN Eraser for Windows has the ability to erase all units that a Windows system can detect and use. Any logical disk or individual disk that can be mounted in a Windows system with the solution installed can be securely erased.Blancco LUN Eraser is designed to shred the whole drive. It will overwrite the entire writeable area sector by sector on the logical disc or drive according to the erasure standard selected. All leading data erasure standards are supported, enabling compliancewith a wide variety of policies and regulations. The central administrative interface for command line operations guarantees flexibility and ease of use.

Secure data erasure without downtime
The investment in a running storage environment in both hardware and configuration time is always significant. With Blancco’s active secure data erasure procedures in place, storage configurations can be safely reused instead of rebuilt or replaced. Blancco LUN Eraser is a fast data erasure solution supporting simultaneousshredding of multiple units by starting parallel instances of the software. Implementing this Blancco solution increases security and saves time and money when compared to existing processes such as replacing and destroying hard drives or rebuilding storage configurations.

Gapless audit trail ensures compliance

Regulations stipulate that customer data must be saved for a certain time period. At the end of this period, the customer’s data must be securely erased and the process thoroughly documented. Corporate clients are using world-class Blancco products to ensure they comply with both internal security policies as well as strict industry standards governing data destruction. Blancco LUN Eraser provides a valuable synergy when coupled with Blancco Management Console because it enables full process control and a gapless audit trail based on detailed XML reporting.

Optional enhanced solution

To securely erase selected file structures as well as entire units, Blancco offers a powerful solution bundle which includes Blancco File Shredder (Server Edition). This unique bundle provides powerful additional features to securely erase sensitive file level data through either scripting or manual routines.
