)-- Blancco Ltd., a company known worldwide for its technologically advanced data erasure software, has just announced that its file shredding software is compliant with Windows Vista. Blancco – File Shredder supports specific Windows Vista functionality and erases all previous versions of electronic files and folders rendering data recovery of these documents impossible.
“The number of data leak stories which continue to flood the media on a daily basis is a clear indicator that companies are still lax about data security or uninformed on how to implement secure data destruction policies. By using Blancco – File Shredder companies are on the right path to ensuring their confidential data does not fall into the wrong hands,” says Mr. Kim Väisänen.
Windows Vista includes a useful innovation which enhances data protection by automatically creating point-in-time copies of a file, allowing a user to quickly and easily retrieve versions of a document they may have accidentally deleted. While this is an extremely valuable feature in preventing data loss, it is also a potential security risk as sensitive files and folders can be recreated even if they have been shredded. Blancco – File Shredder overcomes this challenge and completely eliminates the security risk by permanently destroying all versions of the selected files and folders which have been automatically saved by Windows Vista.
“This is definitely another milestone that we are proud of and it is a testament of our unwavering commitment to offer the most secure and advanced data destruction software than can overcome any technological challenge,” states Mr. Väisänen.
Blancco – File Shredder is a user-friendly, easy to install software designed for shredding selected files, folders and free disk space, and the various user settings give users flexibility when performing their shredding tasks. The tool is not only convenient, but it is also safe and secure ensuring maximum security.
