Voltage Security, a data-centric security and stateless key management solutions provider, has released Voltage Secure-mail Mobile Edition that allows mobile users to read encrypted messages sent from Voltage-enabled desktops, gateways, enterprise applications, and other mobile devices. Users can reply to or compose new secure messages to any standard inbox with a simple “send secure” option.

By working with the native mobile e-mail client apps for iOS, Android, and BlackBerry, users can enjoy their familiar e-mail experience and native phone features. Granular, centrally managed message-level mobile policies simplify regulatory compliance for sensitive e-mail content inside and outside the enterprise.

Full attachment support with native viewers streamlines access to secure content for mobile users. Sending secure e-mail is just a tap away and there is no need for a third-party mobile inbox or service nor any confusing message delivery methods.

  • Immediate value: Mobile Edition-enabled enterprises can unlock the full set of capabilities, including mobile-specific policies, native app features, and an intuitive native user interface.

  • App-store provisioning: Employees, partners, and customers can self-provision the app and register their e-mail address within minutes, streamlining secure business interactions to supported mobile users anywhere, anytime.

  • Unified policies and enforcement: Enables central control and audit for enforcing security policies including authentication, recipient rules, reply, forward, and compose - inside and outside the enterprise.

  • Global enterprise scale: With no per-device key pairs or certificates to manage, or custom configuration files to distribute, Voltage Secure-mail Mobile Edition can be deployed across a dispersed enterprise user population quickly and with minimal operational cost.

  • Designed for MDM compatibility: Working with bring your own device-driven mobile device management (MDM) solutions, the new mobile apps reach past MDM device-level controls to protect e-mail and attachments wherever they go.

  • Protect cloud e-mail messages: Supports recipients using popular web-based e-mail services on mobile devices. Users on Gmail and Yahoo Mail, for example, can rest assured their messages remain secure, even if their inbox is compromised.
