Cipher is a cool tool; you can use it in quite a few ways. In this article we will focus on its newest functionality, the ‘wipe all’ feature. There are times where things just happen, an executive in a company I have worked for had his laptop stolen out of the back of his car because someone smashed the window in, and they saw a laptop case. Since this procedure was commonplace due to the sensitivity of the data we store, nothing was gained because the thief got a laptop clean from any critical data.
