SALT LAKE CITY—April 134 2010—Spearstone today announced iPhone remote wipe support to their DiskAgent line of products. DiskAgent protects mobile devices by enabling owners to execute remote actions, including wiping, disabling or locking them if they are lost or stolen. DiskAgent Mobile currently supports iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Mobile and Palm devices, with Symbian support planned for release later this year.
“Now that our phones hold personal and company email, contacts, photos and other sensitive data, the risks associated with loss or theft have soared,” said Hayden Hartland, Spearstone CEO. “Our company’s primary goal is to protect the data on these devices and give our customers overall confidence in the security of their mobile device.”
DiskAgent protects a mobile device that is lost or stolen by enabling users to execute remote commands from the DiskAgent website or by calling the hotline to initiate protective measures. The device is then instructed via the cellular network to wipe itself and return a report so that the customer knows it has been carried out successfully. DiskAgent runs a lightweight service on the mobile device, which watches for these remote commands.
Other DiskAgent Mobile features include, Make it Ring, which forces the phone to ring even if it is set to vibrate (helpful for misplaced phones) and Lock It, which locks the phone and requires the user to enter a previously configured password to enable it.
DiskAgent Mobile is available for $19.95 per device per year. Spearstone is currently offering a 30-day trial offer on DiskAgent services. To take advantage of this offer or for more information, visit www.diskagent.com or call (877) 375-2468.
