The Best Data Breach Protection

What is Remote Wipe?

Remote Wipe is a system capability or software solution where an administrator has the ability to remotely delete and destroy data on a device or system. This feature is often present in the context of mobile device management, and comprehensive risk management systems usually have a remote erase function. Remote Wipe is an effective way to prevent data breaches, and it can address security concerns in Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies and security gaps in distributed company computing networks.

Wiping a device is the best way to ensure sensitive data stays out of the wrong hands. When a device is lost, stolen, or otherwise compromised, the company must take action to prevent a data breach. Individuals also have private data on their devices that could be used maliciously, but companies have a legal obligation to ensure privacy compliance and maintain trust with clients and shareholders. Remote Wipe is an effective and crucial security feature to have in your cybersecurity program.

Simple Mobile Device Management and Data Security

DriveStrike Remote Wipe

When a remote erase command is executed, personal information data deletion is triggered from a remote system endpoint or control panel. Enterprise wipe can be set up in different ways. The remote delete command can target company specific data on Android devices or erase all data on a device. In most data breach incidents, the operation is optimized to provide quick and effective solutions to security breaches or other information crises.

DriveStrike allows you to initiate a Remote Wipe easily, providing immediate protection for data on compromised devices. Remote Wipe is available on all major platforms and operating systems, so you can have confidence in the security of all the devices you manage. Skip ahead to see a video demonstration for remotely wiping each operating system (or view the page for that device in our How To menu):

If your phone is stolen, there are practical steps you can take to protect the data on it and thwart potential identity theft or other malicious outcomes. Don’t panic if you find yourself in this stressful situation, and form a plan ahead of time so you can be ready to act…



Data and device wipe is extremely useful when a device or system is being hijacked or an unauthorized access occurs. It allows device administrators to easily initiate a factory reset that restores factory settings within the admin center.

Many business personnel prefer an alternative when dealing with lost devices, known as a Remote Lock, where information remains on the device or system but access is prevented. Using remote lock (versus a wipe), those in charge of a system do not automatically lose all of their data, but in many cases a remote wipe is more prudent to ensure data is not compromised.

Either one of these security features is extremely helpful when a mobile device is stolen, or when administrators determine that a bad actor is stealing information through a USB flash drive or other resources.
