DocWallet - The secure documents manager for the iPad
- Securely access and manage confidential documents using Apple's tablet
- Synchronize with PC to ensure documents are always up to date
- Protect data with end-to-end encryption
At home, in the office or on the go, tablets and smartphones have become a fixture of modern life.
DocWallet is the name of Deutsche Post’s solution for anyone requiring extra document security when using mobile devices. Based on a user-specific electronic document map for iPad and Windows PCs, the DocWallet app ensures confidentiality with end-to-end document encryption (AES/RSA) using dedicated DocWallet servers in Germany. DocWallet synchronizes fully encrypted files between PC and iPad. These files can then only be viewed and managed on authorized devices.
At home, in the office or on the go, tablets and smartphones have become a fixture of modern life. The iPad, in particular, is being used more and more by people in their jobs. But up until now, integrating mobile devices into a company's IT system has posed a security challenge: how to ensure the protection of confidential documents being viewed or managed via mobile devices? The DocWallet app is Deutsche Post's solution to this problem.
Security concept responds to the troubling development today
"This service is easy to use, absolutely secure, and it will make life a lot easier for iPad users. It's intended for people with high mobility needs who need continuous access to personal documents and a high degree of data security," explains Marco Hauprich, Deutsche Post's product manager for DocWallet. "It is the first product to combine rigorous security standards with a user-friendly interface - there is no comparable product on the market."
Harald Lemke is Deutsche Post's technical lead for DocWallet. "Our security concept responds to the troubling development today that central servers are increasingly the target of hacker attacks," says Lemke. "This is why DocWallet only transfers and saves encrypted documents."
Referring to recent hacker attacks of high-profile cloud providers, Lemke adds: "Our system is configured so that neither security keys nor user passwords can be found on the DocWallet server. So even in the event of a security breach, our customers' confidential documents remain inaccessible to attackers. Confidential document management has of course always been one of Deutsche Post's core competencies and DocWallet is very much in line with this tradition."
With DocWallet users can
- Save and read PDF documents, manage folders
- Synchronize PDF documents between Windows PCs and iPads
- Add comments to PDF documents using an iPad
All without the usual security risk.
DocWallet consists of a Windows client and the associated iPad app with integrated reader, which makes it possible to view and manage documents on the iPad. The PC synchronization feature ensures that documents are always up to date, even when being accessed at the same time by several devices. Users can also authorize any number of devices for their DocWallet account.
"DocWallet can be used by entire teams," explains Deutsche Post manager Marco Hauprich. "So supplying mobile users with up to date information becomes a much faster and easier process."
