MIAMI - Oct. 4, 2017 - PRLog -- ProtectStar today is proud to announce the new update of Data Shredder for iOS 2 - formerly iShredder - their data shredding utility that securely erases and wipes data or the freespace on any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Anyone can simply connect their iOS device to their Mac or Windows computer, and efficiently erase and overwrite all data from the iOS device.
The new Data Shredder for iOS 2 uses data shredding techniques that go beyond international standards set by state and military organizations for secure data deletion. Data Shredder'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 utilities for macOS or Windows. 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 three simple steps, Data Shredder for iOS can securely erase the free space using patented security standards, making it impossible to recover any deleted data."
Data Shredder for iOS 2 is available in two versions, the Professional Edition offers 11 different data shredding methods, completely wiping all free space and overwriting the storage area, to completely shred all of the stored data. Data Shredder Military Edition offers 18 erasing algorithms in total, while also offering an integrated secure file explorer.
The new integrated secure cleaning module with its innovative search and collection 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.
