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.

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.
