Aiko Solutions, a UK based security software developer, today released the new version of SecuWipe, the world's first and most feature-rich data wiping solution for Windows phones and Windows CE terminals. The new SecuWipe offers a 360 degrees approach to protecting user identity and sensitive data in case of mobile phone theft or loss. It will securely delete all information from a compromised device – either when it discovers an untrusted SIM or a specific SMS with a pass-phrase.
SecuWipe is an advanced tool that offers a multitude of industry acknowledged data sanitizing methods. It wipes sensitive information using Department of Defense wiping methods, Bruce Schneier's and Peter Gutmann's algorithms. It sanitizes all previously deleted data, contacts, email and SMS messages, confidential files and folders from the mobile device and its media cards. It is both the solution for everyday use for protecting mobile user's privacy and identity and the only way to securely dispose of old Windows devices within an organization.
Version 1.1 features a Wipe Scheduler that offers the following breakthrough features that protect user's sensitive data:
- SMS based wiping – SecuWipe will wipe selected data files if a specific SMS with password is received
- Wiping on Untrusted SIM will wipe selected data if an unknown SIM is inserted into the device SIM slot
- No SIM or Phone off will wipe the device if it has been stolen and the intruder has removed the SIM card or disabled the phone option
- Time based wiping – SecuWipe will wipe the desired data on hourly, daily, monthly or yearly basis.
