LogMeIn Plans Remote 'Data Shredding' Service

LogMeIn, a remote access and support services provider, this week said it plans to offer a service that gives laptop owners a way to mitigate the disaster of a lost or stolen machine.

LogMeIn's Instant Shredding service, due out early next year, enables users to have their data encrypted or deleted if their notebook PC is stolen or lost, said Michael Simon, CEO of the Woburn, Mass.-based vendor. Users of LogMeIn's remote backup service, which provides a continuous remote mirror of hard-drive data, also can choose to erase all traces of data from stolen laptop hard drives, he added.
