Software for erasing sensitive smartphone data
Aiko Solutions announced the public release of SecuWipe, the first data erasure utility for PDAs and Smartphones. Operating Smartphones poses a great risk since they can store a treasure-trove of corporate and personal information. Standard “deletion” and even a “hard reset” do not completely wipe data off the device, with the result that sensitive information can still be easily retrieved by using special recovery software. SecuWipe overwrites data with U.S. DoD compliant methods thus making data truly erased and unrecoverable.
SecuWipe is an advanced software utility to securely sanitize data on Windows Mobile Pocket PCs,Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Smartphones and Windows CE handhelds. Whether to clean the Smartphone before recycling or to remove traces of online activity, SMS and calls records, SecuWipe is the best choice for those who want to avoid security breaches and protect customer privacy. The program employs different data sanitizing algorithms, including zero-filling, U.S. DoD 5220.22-M method, Bruce Schneie’s algorithm, and Peter Gutman’s algorithm.
SecuWipe will securely erase:
- Email, SMS, MMS messages
- Appointments, Tasks
- Notes, Recordings
- Internet Cache, Cookies and History
- Free Space
- SD card(s)
- Files and Folders
The software runs on Windows Mobile Professional and Classic (6.0/6.1), Windows Mobile 5.0 for Pocket PC, Pocket PC 2000/2002/2003SE.Ã‚
