Kroll Ontrack offers businesses a fast and easy solution to manage the erasure process with the launch of a hosted erase solution

Erase management, reporting and licensing in minutes via a centralized web interface

MINNEAPOLIS, June 16, 2015Kroll Ontrack, the leading provider of data recovery and ediscovery, today launched a hosted erase solution to empower businesses to easily and securely manage their data erasure projects. Hosted erase is deployed via the Blancco Management Console, freeing small- and medium-sized businesses from the setup, operation and cost of the administration infrastructure such as reporting servers or SQL databases.

Data erasure is critical to sound data management, but it is one of many solutions and processes for IT to manage. Whether carrying out a sanitization project on old devices before recycling, disposing of them or safely removing data before reusing a set of devices, businesses want a secure and certified erasure solution that is easy to deploy and manage,” said Todd Johnson, vice president of data recovery operations, Kroll Ontrack. “Kroll Ontrack hosted erase does just that. It takes the setup and maintenance burden off of businesses while also ensuring that no trace of company data resides on the devices in question.”

Hosted erase is available through the purchase of a license pack (25 to 500 licenses). Registering for an online account, businesses can immediately begin performing erasures and manage secure deletion from devices such as mobiles, laptops, PCs and small servers. Additional benefits of the hosted erase solution include:

  • Centralized web management of all deletion processes.
  • Simple online management of expired licenses without installation of HASP key or license manager.
  • Simple installation of Blancco erase software on the user machines to securely delete data from computers and mobile devices.
  • Comprehensive reporting of all erasure processes to track compliance with internal and external policies.
  • First-class service and support from Kroll Ontrack.

Hosted erase is available directly to businesses or to resellers. Resellers have the option to contact Kroll Ontrack with an order for a determined number of wipes or to purchase a number of wipes and deploy the data erasure services directly.
