NEWS
The number of smartphones and tablet PCs used by businesses is continuously growing. However, iPhones and other devices were developed for private use rather than the handling of sensitive enterprise data. Businesses therefore need to make devices safe before using them. SecurePIM, developed by Munich-based virtual solution, is the premier provider of high security encryption solutions for iPhone and iPad worldwide. Trading & Consulting H.P.C GmbH now is a reseller and provides SecurePIM also in Austria.

The NSA leaks have shown even the most obstinate sceptics that it is not only possible to tap any form of electronic communication, but already common practice. Astronomical yields from industry espionage entice criminals worldwide to impropriate sensitive enterprise data. “Espionage always remains a theoretical threat – until there is an incident”, explains Dr. Raoul-Thomas Herborg, CEO of the Munich-based software business “virtual solution”. “Time and time again, managers find reasons why their business is not subject to espionage.” This is a grave mistake as the list of businesses falling victim to data theft is seemingly endless: from the Swabian mittelstand firm that comes across its own product at a trade fair, produced for half the price by an Asian manufacturer, to cases of deliberate data theft that have plunged numerous businesses into profound struggles for survival.

As the premier provider of high security business solutions worldwide, virtual solution offers SecurePIM – the “Personal Information Manager” – a complete solution for the iPhone and iPad. SecurePIM is offered as an app to ensure simple installation and provides users central access to all business emails, contacts, calendars and documents. The app satisfies highest security requirements and its usability is as simple and intuitive as apps developed by Apple. “SecurePIM finally grants organisations full control over business data stored on their mobile devices”, Herborg states. “This step is essential towards enabling the use of iPhones and iPads in businesses.”

Highest Security

SecurePIM stores all business data within a stringently protected safe area on the mobile device. Additionally, mails are encrypted via a secure S/MIME standard. Sensitive business data is therefore amply protected and separated from private data. The organisation is able to control the entire business data stored on the mobile device via the mobile application management portal. Furthermore, the IT department is able to centrally control and configure the app on all registered mobile devices. In case of emergency all business data stored in SecurePIM can be locked in an instance. All private data on mobile devices remains unaffected by SecurePIM.
virtual solution provides various processes for authentication and decryption, which the organisation can define depending on the security requirements of the respective user groups. This ranges from soft certification within the secured area to the use of smartcards for highest security requirements. Theft targeted at data stored on the device, despite using state of the art technology, is rendered impossible.

Simple Integration into the Organisation

A further advantage of SecurePIM is the system’s integration into an organisation, which is as simple as its usability. The integration of existing IT-infrastructure is easily manageable – SecurePIM can be directly connected to a Microsoft Exchange Server. Furthermore, SecurePIM allows for access to documents stored on Microsoft SharePoint or OpenText and if desired can be integrated into existing Public-Key-Infrastructure (PKI).

“SecurePIM allows an organisation to create high security areas to store essential business data and allows reliable protection of its precious capital from unauthorised access”, as Raoul-Thomas Herborg points out. “This way we make Apple devices safe for business use and make many employees worldwide happy.”
