Group (LSE: BLTG) and The Dariu Foundation are urging
Vietnamese businesses to save used laptops and desktops from physical
destruction and instead, donate them to low-income school children and rural
schools that don't have computers.
"Because of COVID-19, the education of more
than 21 million children was disrupted in Vietnam, and of these, an estimated 4
million lack devices," said The Dariu Foundation Program Manager Lan Anh. "By
working with Blancco partners and the private sector, we hope to provide 70
rural schools and 2,000
disadvantaged children with free-of-charge rental of desktops and laptops to
access digital literacy education and online education."
The industry leader in data erasure,
Blancco Technology Group provides secure, regulatory-compliant sanitization
software that removes all traces of data from PCs, laptops, mobile devices, and
It is this level of security that enables
even heavily regulated enterprises, such as banks, government organizations, to
repurpose their used but functional devices rather than shredding them or
sending them to the landfill.
"We understand that businesses need to be
very careful in how they handle personal or sensitive information," said
Blancco Vietnamese Regional Manager Quang Cao. "Data security and regulatory
concerns are very real. The good news is that by completely sanitizing data
from a device, businesses can operate more in line with Vietnam's Sustainable
Blancco is providing 30 free data erasure
licenses to each business that donates its laptops, tablets, or PCs to The
Dariu Foundation as part of this effort. Dariu will collect the equipment,
conduct any repairs or upgrades, then deliver devices to schools.
Additional licenses are also available for
purchase should a business contribute more than 30 devices. The license
donation program will run until 31 December 2021. For more information on how
