NitroDesk, the global provider of the number 1 Exchange ActiveSync(TM) email solution for mobile devices, today announces the release of TouchDown 1.0.3 for iOS, the most cost-effective and secure email solution for iOS devices. TouchDown for iOS works by partitioning all corporate data into its own secure "container." With this solution, IT can effectively separate enterprise data from the user's personal data on the device, ensuring their BYOD programs are both secure and flexible, even for those industries - including financial services, legal, pharmaceutical and healthcare - with strict privacy and compliance requirements.
"TouchDown for iOS is the next logical step forward in securing corporate data on one of the leading mobile device platforms. Across all industry sectors, CIOs are concerned by the native Exchange client's inability to provide robust support for Data Loss Protection policies. TouchDown for iOS closes these DLP gaps simply and effectively by creating a secure container for the corporate data," says Ron Goins, Chief Operating Officer of NitroDesk Inc.
TouchDown for iOS's comprehensive BYOD support helps reduce IT's capital investments as well as its carrier costs. The solution's highly secure container also means the device user needs only one logon to access their Email, Calendar, Contacts, Tasks and Notes.
TouchDown for iOS provides support for all Exchange Information Rights Management (IRM) and Data Loss Protection policies. TouchDown supports IRM by enforcing those IRM policies specified in the messages that are synchronized to the device. These specific policies include suppressing Reply, Reply-All, Forward, Printing, Copying and modifying recipients. In addition to being able to view IRM-protected messages, TouchDown for iOS also lets users send protected messages on the go by selecting IRM templates.
A stand-alone solution, TouchDown for iOS also provides the ability to integrate seamlessly with the industry's most respected and robust Mobile Device Management solutions. By extending administrative controls to the email subsystem, MDM integration provides IT with reliable end-user configurations, robust policy enforcement, comprehensive data loss protection, compliance monitoring and management of various licenses. Leading MDM providers AirWatch, Notify and Symantec have already completed their successful integration with TouchDown for iOS.
In addition, the solution uses AES-256 encryption for an added layer of security as well as a host of email security features including:
- PIN enforcement policy
- Ability to perform a remote wipe or kill
- Remote kill support for user-initiated wipe
- Settings encrypted by default using AES-256
- S/MIME signing and encryption
- HTTPS connections
- No export of calendar/email to native apps
- One-way phone book export
- End user cannot override any security policy
TouchDown for iOS also provides device users with an easy-to-use User Interface that has the PIM features device users want and need. Email features include push delivery when the app is running in the foreground, the ability to use the Global Address List within an email, search the server, sync sub folders and more. In addition, the solution's Contacts, Calendar Task and Notes functionality extends beyond the native app.
