Remote data wipe

Wiping data is a process that allows you to remotely erase data from a user's device when a violation or breach of security policy is detected, a user’s network permissions are changed or revoked, or the user’s employment is terminated. When data is wiped, the secure container on the device where files and folders that the organization owns are located is physically rewritten with zeros to prevent data recovery. This is different from an ordinary file deletion, where only the pointer to the file in the file allocation table is deleted.
