So as we prepared our first Alfresco Mobile app update of 2013 we wanted to make sure it improved upon our existing enterprise grade security features to add extra layers of content protection and increase peace of mind for the ever-expanding mobile workforce.
Alfresco Mobile for iOS version 1.5 answers further mobile security questions with optional features such as file-based security, certificate authentication, limited sharing with other apps and the ability to apply a “shelf-life” to content that has been downloaded or synced to an iPad or iPhone.
This last feature for Alfresco Mobile 1.5 eradicates the worry caused by employees downloading, saving or syncing content to their devices beyond the boundaries of the enterprise server or cloud account. IT and regulatory personnel amongst our enterprise customers can now rest easy, secure in the knowledge that their confidential content can be time-stamped to become inaccessible on a device that has not been connected to the repository for a pre-configured period of time. If you don’t want your content going walkabouts, keep it on a leash by restricting sharing rights on your documents and make it entirely inaccessible on that mobile device if the device is not connected to your enterprise account for a certain amount of time – 24 hours or 8 hours or even one hour.
In addition to these ground-breaking security features we have also included some further improvements, including:
- Compatibility with the Google apps version of Quickoffice
- Version numbering consistency with the Alfresco web client
- Previews for iWorks documents
The mobility and flexibility trends are doing great things for the efficiency of enterprises, but we are also well aware that the security of your content is perhaps even more important than mobile access. Now you don’t need to compromise between security and mobility, nor do you need to run the risks associated with using an insecure personal file sharing service to get your content to your mobile workforce.
