Erase iPhone and Wipe iPad: ProtectStar Announces New Update of iShredder iOS

Miami, FL – May 2, 2019 – ProtectStar today announces the new update 3.5.1 of iShredder iOS, their iOS data eraser app. By simply connecting their iPhone or iPad device to any Mac or Windows computer and running iShredder iOS, anyone can securely erase their iOS device, ensuring all personal data, including passwords, videos, photos, and more can never be recovered. The software is perfect for use before selling a used iPhone or iPad. For enterprise users, the latest version of iShredder Mobile Enterprise is the solution to meet the needs of recycling companies to secure erase iOS devices.

iShredder iOS uses 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 does exactly as advertised, destroy all personal data on the device beyond any hope of recovery.

iShredder provides bullet-proof, auditable erasure reports to help users track erasures, limit corporate liability and protect corporate data.

“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 forensic utilities. 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 some simple steps, iShredder iOS can securely wipe the memory space using patented security standards, making it impossible to recover any deleted data.”

The integrated secure cleaning module with its innovative search 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. Even the new secure cleaning module does not simply remove temporary data, it is able to safely wipe those files by using the ISM 6.2.92 deletion procedure certified by the Australian Ministry of Defense.

iShredder iOS 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. It uses certified deletion algorithms, including: DoD 5220.22-M ECE, Peter Gutmann, DoD 5220.22-M, HMG Infosec No.5, German BSI-2011-VS, US Army AR380-19 and more.

The Military edition offers 18 erasing methods in total, while also offering an integrated file explorer. It uses those same algorithms, plus makes use of enhanced military deletion methods like NATO standard, US Navy NAVSO P-5239-26 (MFM & RLL), USAF AFSSI-5020, German BSI TL-03423 and CSEC ITSG-06.
