With the renewal of the approval from the Federal Office for Information Security, companies receive more than 15 certifications and approvals for their data erasure products.

The Blancco Technology Group (LON: BLTG), the industry standard in the field of data deletion and mobile device diagnostics, is pleased to announce that the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) recently granted approval for Blancco Drive Eraser.

The Federal Office for Information Security is an upper German federal authority and is responsible for IT and communication security for the German federal government. Approval by the BSI is mandatory for the use of IT security products in many German authorities. In addition, the BSI approval is an absolute quality feature for many companies and public bodies in Germany.

Initial certification was granted in 2013 for version 5.1.1 of Blancco Drive Eraser. The new approval applies to Blancco Drive Eraser v6.5.x and is valid from November 30, 2018 to December 31, 2021. During the period of validity, the approval can also be extended to higher versions. Those interested can find the current admission information here (under Blancco data erasure software).
