Message Burn limits the lifespan of sensitive data. Set a time at which messages are automatically deleted on the recipient’s device.

A provider of specialist, secure communications solutions has created Mobile Message Burn. Message Burn limits the lifespan of sensitive data at rest. Users can set a time at which their messages are automatically deleted (or as the name implies, ‘burn’) on the recipient’s device. This can be either a future date and time or an amount of time after the message has been read by the recipient. The function can be set as a default or altered message by message according to their confidentiality.

David Holman, director at the provider Armour Communications said: “Message Burn has been developed as a result of customers requests.”

A UK government certified solution, Armour Mobile can be downloaded from App stores and used on company issued or staff owned devices. It can be deployed and centrally managed either on the Armour secure cloud or as a full on-premises installation.
