Definition Edit

Remote wipe is a feature of some mobile devices that allow a user to delete data stored on the device remotely.

Overview Edit

"Remote wipe is a fundamentally unreliable security control; for example, an attacker could access information on a device before it is wiped, or an attacker could power off a device to prevent it from receiving a remote wipe signal. Organizations should not rely on remote wipe as the sole security control for protecting sensitive data, but instead consider it to be one layer of a multi-layered approach to protection."[1]
