Product Announcements – ProtectStar of Miami, Florida has released iShredder iOS 3.2, their data shredding utility that easily deletes and shreds data on any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Anyone can simply connect their iOS device to their Mac or Windows computer, and efficiently delete, clean or overwrite all data from the device.
iShredder iOS uses data shredding techniques that go beyond international standards set by state and military organizations for secure data deletion. iShredder’s data erasing algorithms have been analyzed by government authorities and independent security organizations to ensure the app does exactly as advertised, destroy all personal data on the device beyond any hope of recovery.
“When a user deletes personal files such as photos from their device, they may think they’re gone for good. The truth is, they can be recovered using any one of a number of forensic utilities. Those files aren’t really gone until that storage space is overwritten using secure deletion algorithms,” says Chris Bohn, CEO of ProtectStar. “However, in just some simple steps, iShredder iOS can securely wipe the memory space using patented security standards, making it impossible to recover any deleted data.”
The integrated secure cleaning module with its innovative search algorithm was designed specifically to detect and effectively clean up useless temporary junk data, caches, log files and more. It not only brings back valuable storage space to the mobile device, it also ensures a performance tuning just like having a new device. Even the new secure cleaning module does not simply remove temporary data, it is able to safely wipe those files by using the ISM 6.2.92 deletion procedure certified by the Australian Ministry of Defense.
Detailed erasure reports provide users an evidence of deletion and cleaned data.
