Spearstone Announces Smartphone Application for DiskAgent Product Line

DiskAgent by Spearstone, expands its services to include smartphone applications and provide overall data protection and recovery for BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and Palm devices.

SALT LAKE CITY - March. 11, 2009 - Spearstone today announced the addition of DiskAgent Mobile, a smartphone application to their DiskAgent line of products. It protects mobile devices by enabling owners to execute remote actions, including wiping, disabling or locking them if they are lost or stolen. DiskAgent Mobile currently supports Blackberry, Windows Mobile and Palm devices, with Symbian support planned for release later this year.

"Now that our phones hold personal and company email, contacts, photos and other sensitive data, the risks associated with loss or theft have soared," said Hayden Hartland, Spearstone CEO. "Our company's primary goal is to protect the data on these devices and give our customers overall confidence in the security of their mobile device."

DiskAgent Mobile protects a device that is lost or stolen, by enabling users to execute remote commands from the DiskAgent website or by calling the hotline to initiate protective measures. The device is then instructed via the cellular network to wipe its data and return a report so that the customer knows it has been carried out successfully. DiskAgent runs a lightweight service on the mobile device, which watches for these remote commands.

Other DiskAgent Mobile features include, Make it Ring, which forces the phone to ring even if it is set to vibrate (helpful for misplaced phones) and Lock It, which locks the phone and requires the user to enter a previously configured password to enable it.

DiskAgent Mobile is available for $1.95 per device per month. Spearstone is currently offering a 30-day trial offer on DiskAgent Mobile services. To take advantage of this offer or for more information, visit or call (877) 375-2468.
