Mobile Mentor secures corporate content on iPads
Mobile Mentor, a leading provider of mobile solutions for enterprise and government, has launched a Secure Content Locker for iPad to provide secure access and version-control for corporate documents that are confidential and time-sensitive.
The Secure Content Locker is part of a broader Mobile Device Management service that Mobile Mentor launched last year and which has been deployed to utilities, government entities and professional services firms in New Zealand and Australia.
“The Secure Content Locker deals with two major issues surrounding mobile content,” said Denis O’Shea, CEO of Mobile Mentor. “It creates a secure environment in which users can read sensitive content, offering them a safe alternative to popular consumer apps such as DropBox. At the same time it provides version control and time-stamp functionality, ensuring users access the latest content that is approved for use by their company.”
The Secure Content Locker will be invaluable for the distribution of board papers, legal documents and formal procedures that need to be frequently updated. Mobile Mentor expects the accounting, legal, medical, energy and aviation professions to be early adopters of the service.
The Secure Content Locker allows companies to secure document distribution and control access to corporate documents from iPads. Files such as Office, iWork or PDF can be added to, updated or removed from the Secure Locker by an administrator, given an expiry date if necessary and transmitted over-the-air using industry standard 256-bit SSL encrypted connections to company compliant devices.
“As well as providing a secure environment for users to access sensitive content, it controls their ability to edit, share or open files in unauthorised applications,” continued Denis O’Shea.
The content management functionality is part of Airwatch’s Mobile Device Management platform, which Mobile Mentor’s uses to secure and manage its customers’ iOS, Android and Windows devices. The Secure Content Locker is currently available for iPad only, with an Android tablet version to be released in the near future.
