Blancco File Eraser goes beyond today’s regular file shredding software to guarantee your files are eliminated with a certified report that achieves true data sanitization requirements. With this report, you prove adherence to algorithm standards specified by the U.S. Department of Defense (Standard 5220.22-M) and 21 other standards, to meet security and regulatory compliance requirements.

With Blancco File Eraser organizations securely wipe sensitive files and folders from PC desktop computers, laptops and servers – either manually or automatically.
