Having worked with a number of blue-chip customers in the past, we are conscious of the security concerns that mobile data brings to the corporate environment. To help make the iFolder app as secure as possible, we do a few things to help protect your information in the unfortunate event of losing your phone.
Firstly, all account details are stored securely in the iPhone keyChain. This means your account information is encrypted both on the device, and on any backups.
Secondly, we don’t provide any mechanism for viewing password information you have already entered. If you forget your password, you won’t be able to get it back from us!
Finally, we of course recommend that you only ever access your iFolders over a secure connection. This is the default setting for new accounts in the application and whilst we allow you to turn it off for installations that insist on an unencrypted link, we expect most users to have SSL enabled by default.
As you will know, iFolder allows you to create encrypted folders so that the data is stored in encrypted form for additional security. Support for encrypted iFolders was added with the 1.5 release.
We’re also pleased to report that UNLIKE the web client, which actually gets the server to do the decryption and then sends the decrypted data to your browser, iFolder for iPhone requests the encrypted data over the wire and only decrypts it when it has arrived on your device for maximum security even over unsecured networks.
