(13-April-2012) PKWARE Inc.’s recent release of a free SecureZIP reader for iOS is part of a new approach to the BYOD problem: give security-conscious employees more responsibility for preventing data breaches.
SecureZIP, which is sold to enterprises and deployed by the IT departments, is used to encrypt corporate information at the workplace. With SecureZIP for iOS, employees can now decrypt files sent to cloud storage on an iPhone or iPad. The company plans to create an application for Android in the coming months as well.
Many organizations are struggling to find the right strategy to control the flow of unsecured data leaving their premises. The problem of employees storing files in the cloud and accessing company data on mobile devices doesn’t have an easy solution.
