LAS VEGAS, NV: In order to regulate secure logistics of phone distribution and repair, Cellebrite, a distributor of mobile data technology and mobile lifecycle management solutions is introducing ‘Secure Wipe’ a forensic data erasing solution to remove personal content from mobile devices.

Cellebrite offerings include in-store phone-to-phone content transfer, backup and restore, application and content delivery, automated BuyBack, retail management monitoring and statistics and analysis of in-store sales activities. To assure effective law enforcement, Cellebrite’s Universal Forensic Extraction Device (UFED), a mobile forensics solution, extracts, decodes and analyses actionable data from smartphones, tablets and portable GPS devices.

Cellebrite Secure Wipe solution leverages Cellebrite MD diagnostics- a secure data wipe service platform which is built to optimize repair center operations. Secure Wipe meets rigid National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards and guidelines for wireless device data erasure. The solution supports 40 simultaneous transactions without impacting turn-around-time and processing speed as well as offers accessible dashboard to keep a track on transaction status. Designed for After-Market Services (AMS) providers, it supports multiple standards for data erasure including R2 and Department of Defense (DoD).

“Powered by our deep knowledge of forensic extraction, the Cellebrite MD with Secure Wipe helps AMS providers' busy repair centers meet ever stronger data deletion standards without increasing cost or turn-around time," says Amir Lehr, EVP of Products & Business Development Mobile Lifecycle, Cellebrite.

Initially Cellebrite MD with Secure Wipe erase all data and make it unrecoverable, then by utilizing Cellebrite Diagnostics, repair centers can flash and triage phones in much agile way than FOTA (Firmware Over the Air). Further Cellebrite Diagnostics identifies problems that are residing in the phone and verifies that whether the repairs are successfully done by comparing before and after test results. It features customizable workflows, built-in solution scalability and lab-quality diagnostic testing to increases ROI and operational efficiency.

Secure Wipe solution executes multiple wipe measures and automatically selects the most efficient method based on the standard to be followed, the phone to be wiped and the operating system the phone is running. It enables service providers to modulate a device which will be ready to re-enter the market after repair or trade-in.
