TeamDrive iOS app brings enterprise-grade security to cloud file-sharing for iPhone and iPad

By Jonathan Dolby

New app for world's most popular tablet devices and smartphones makes Bring Your Own Device policies more viable

 TeamDrive 3.0 for iOS has launched and is now in the App Store, delivering truly secure and private access to cloud data for iPhone and iPad business users. Availability of the iOS version of the world's only cloud synchronization tool with a data protection seal of approval eases the task of IT directors trying to balance the use of mobile devices with the collaboration benefits of cloud storage, while also maintaining the absolute security of data. The option of running a TeamDrive server within a company's own datacenter as well as on public and private cloud makes it a highly attractive enterprise ready approach.

Volker Oboda, CEO of enterprise cloud synchronization provider TeamDrive, said, 'The iPad and iPhone are hugely popular choices for enterprise users, especially under Bring Your Own Device policies. Yet, until today, no cloud synchronization tool was available to provide genuine, enterprise-grade security for those devices.  Today's announcement makes BYOD policies far easier for IT directors to propose, implement and manage without worrying about the loss or compromise of confidential data or intellectual property when employees access files 'on the go' when the devices go AWOL.'

TeamDrive's highly secure cloud file-sharing approach means that all data are encrypted on the originating device before upload, preventing meaningful unauthorised interception.  RSA-2048 encryption is used on invitations to share AES-256 encrypted files on any TeamDrive Space.  The sum of its security features ensures that TeamDrive is Safe Harbor-compliant.

To accommodate the needs of every business, especially those concerned about the implications of keeping intellectual property on cloud storage,  TeamDrive may be used with any choice of server: private cloud, public cloud, TeamDrive cloud or on-site. This means that, instead of being pushed into a public cloud, an enterprise may use TeamDrive to operate its own private file-sharing service. The contents remain entirely under company control, on company-owned and company-managed servers.

TeamDrive 3.0 was launched on March 6th 2012 with a promise to release its iOS and Android apps imminently.  TeamDrive's Android app will be announced shortly, with support for Blackberry and Windows Mobile Phones following in the summer.
