Backstopp - The Morning After Pill for Identity Management?

It has been a while since I have posted anything as I do not have the time (nor do I get paid) to look at what happens in the Identity Management space like I used to. That said, I still believe that it is the concrete in any infosec organization, technology stack, or IT organization.

I ran across a company that has what I thought was a crucial - as in I hope you dont need it but if you did you'll be glad you have it - piece of the puzzle oft ignored. I call it the morning after pill for data.

It destroys data after you lose control, posession, or ownership of it. Someone steals your laptop, you get to wipe it the next time it boots up. An employee quits while in posession of key data and you wipe their machine and the data in it from your company HQ.

Anyway, it answers the 'so what' question simply, effectively and inexpensively.
