Wipe Data on Android with new iShredder Android GOVERNMENT/ENTERPRISE

August 19, 2019
Protectstar Inc. has released the new iShredder Android Government and iShredder Android Enterprise edition, their high-secure data erasure apps for Android smartphones and tablets. By simply running the iShredder app on any Android device, anyone can securely erase data, ensuring all personal data: including passwords, SMS (text messages), MMS, call logs, contacts, videos, photos, and more can never be recovered.

With military-grade security iShredder Android Government and iShredder Android Enterprise using certified deletion algorithms. They use 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 securely removes all personal data on your device. Data erasure is overwriting the data in every sector. This will make recovering the data impossible.

"When a user deletes personal files, such as photos and videos from their device, they may think they're gone for good. The truth is, they can be recovered using any one of many utilities for Android. Those files aren't gone until they have been securely erased using advanced deletion algorithms," says German security experts and CEO of Protectstar, Chris Bohn.

The Government edition is only available on Protectstar's online shop. The app can securely erase photos, contacts, text messages (SMS/MMS), call logs, WhatsApp, thumbnails, personal files, and folders, as well as a secure deletion of mounted devices such as external USB sticks, sd cards, and more. After erasing your data, iShredder™ will generate a report which you could use for the audit trail, the proof of erasure. It provides auditable and verifiable assurance that all data was sanitized in compliance with published standards such as GDPR, UK Government InfoSec No. 5, U.S. DoD, NIST 800-88.

The integrated File Explorer allows users easy access and selection of data, such as personal files or photos from the Android gallery, and completely erase them with ease.
