Data be gone with one simple SMS

Okay, so someone managed to run off with your Toughbook. And with it, all the data that’s stored in it. Chances of retrieving the Toughbook? Very low if the thief is sneaky. But at least you can deny that bugger access to your customer’s data.

How? Simply send an SMS, and it’ll wipe everything off the face of the earth. Yes, even if the Toughbook is switched off. That’s how secure it is. But really, you should invest in a laptop lock or take better care of your belongings and not have this happen.
