WaveSecure, which has been available for all major smartphone platforms for quite a while, including BlackBerry OS and Android, and has a sharp focus on the protection of relevant user data such as contacts and SMS. The new ported solution brings the same feature set largely unchanged to iOS.
After a short registration process, users are able to backup their relevant data to a remote location and retrieve it at any time the device is lost and stolen. The retrieval process can be carried out from the device itself, another authorized device running WaveSecure or a computer through a web interface. Since this software is cross-platform, the same information can be retrieved across different platforms: for example, contacts backed up from an iPhone can be downloaded right back to a BlackBerry. That’s not only a great security feature, it’s great for switching devices!
WaveSecure is available as of today for $19.99 from the App Store for the iPhone, in several language such as English, Portuguese and French. Keep in mind that the iPad and iPod touch aren’t supported in this release.
