Data is one of the most important aspects of any business. You need to keep your business’s data safe, whether it is employee data or customer data; however, this is easier said than done. Employees need regular access to business data to execute daily tasks, and this makes your data vulnerable.
Besides the growing risk of cybercrime and cyber attacks on businesses, your employees can lose their devices; this is not entirely their fault, and it can happen to anyone.
Most businesses can afford the loss of the device; however, the loss of data on said devices is a completely different story. The sensitive data on lost devices can become problematic if it gets into the wrong hands or is exposed publicly.
This problem gives rise to the question...
Can You Delete Data From Your Devices Remotely?
Yes, you can remotely delete data from your devices, especially from lost or stolen devices.
You cannot stop devices from being lost or stolen, but you can take swift action to protect your dealership from a potential data leak as a result of a lost device.
The safest, simplest solution is to wipe the device remotely.
The ability to delete the data on such devices allows you to remove all traces of personal and professional information. Deleting your data can save your dealership from potential ransom threats and data leaks and protect your business from losing its credibility, clients, and revenue.
It also helps avoid any potential lawsuits and settlements that result from sensitive data being leaked from your company.
How It’s Done
Remotely deleting data involves a complete and effective factory reset of the lost device; this erases all the sensitive data on the device, bringing it back to its original data-less state like it was when it was brand new.
Any person in possession of your business device cannot stop the factory reset because you can override their actions on the device.
The importance of being able to do this cannot be understated. As a business owner, you need to make sure you can remotely delete your sensitive data from any device your business owns.
So, how can you make this happen?
