Cortado Announces The First App for Document Encryption and Data Security on iPad and iPhone

The latest version of Cortado Workplace enhances the protection of data, fully supporting encryption of local documents on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch  

Mobile business expert Cortado today announces new  data encryption features of its free Cortado Workplace app, increasing data security and preventing unauthorized access of local files on iOS devices. With iOS 4, Apple has created the basis for saving encrypted documents on the iPad or iPhone. However, this protection mechanism works only if supported by the applications used on the device. Following Apple’s strategy, Cortado Workplace becomes the first app to support full encryption of local documents on iOS 4 devices.

In its report on smartphone security, ENISA (European Network and Information Security Agency) identified data theft through stolen or lost devices as one of the biggest security risks involved in mobile device use. With the ability to encrypt locally saved documents, the new version of Cortado Workplace protects against unauthorized file access if the device is lost or stolen. The user can choose to set encryption as default, automatically encrypting all documents stored in the local Workplace directory. Alternatively, documents can be encrypted individually and identified by a lock icon.

In addition to the enhanced data protection, Cortado’s new Open In feature allows for Workplace to seamlessly integrate with other apps, such as Good Reader, Keynote, Pages or email applications. Documents from these programs can be saved and printed directly in Cortado Workplace. 

The new Cortado app can be used by private iOS users as well as by enterprise users with Cortado Corporate Server. For enterprise users, the new encryption feature combines locally saved file security with secure access to the corporate network. 

“Together with Apple iOS 4, the new version of Cortado Workplace meets all the requirements for secure corporate use of iPad and iPhone,” said Dirk Löwenberg, business director online sales and services. “Data protection is critical for all business users. Being the first application on the market to support Apple’s security measures puts us one step ahead of the competition and proves that our users can always count on us.”
