Our company brought 3 HTC Touch Pro 2 mobiles for us to use. We have them syncing with the server every hour etc, there will be confidential material on the devices. In the case of misplacing one of them we need a surefire way of remote wiping and/or tracking where the phone is.
I realise there is remote wipe in server 2008, but that relies on the phone syncing after its been lost. I was hoping for an app that could be triggered by a text or something similar.
So what software are people using for wipe and tracking?

You can use Microsoft MyPhone or Sprite Terminator (http://www.spritesoftware.com/products/sprite-terminator). Sprite is based in Auckland and their software is shipped on millions of devices around the world.

Many thanks Mauricio, have passed it on to the managing director and it looks like we will go with Sprite.
