Kroll Ontrack has confirmed that they will be pulling out of the data erase software market, which will leave only 2 CESG approved software providers, namely Tabernus and Blancco. Kroll will honour existing contracts up until November of this year.
Comment from Director - Jean-Pierre Naylor:
"We knew this was coming as Kroll have ceased all development of their data erase software, namely surrounding the wiping of SSD drives. As one of the largest users of Kroll Ontrack software this represents a significant change for us. We have entered into talks with both Blancco and Tabernus and hope to have a solution in place in due course."
