Sensitive data and photos in smartphones protected by TrustPort
TrustPort, a leading provider of security software, confirms the launch of a new application for devices running on the Android and iOS platforms. Pictura is a useful tool for secure storing and encoding not only of private photographs in JPG and PNG formats, but also other files and documents in PDF, TXT, DOC, XLS and PPT formats. Chosen files can be secured with a password against unauthorized access.
”Most smartphones’ users still underestimate their lack of security. Most people these days are used to saving very sensitive data such as company presentations, financial plans, family photos or pictures downloaded from the internet in their phones. If these phones get in the wrong hands, the owner can get into a very unpleasant situation. That is why we have decided to offer our users a very simple solution. If anyone using the Pictura application loses their mobile phone, they do not need to worry about the fact, that their sensitive data and photographs will be exposed. Nobody can access their private data without knowing the correct password“, says Pavel Mrnustik, CEO at TrustPort.
The TrustPort company with its new Pictura application also prevents threats, which are connected with company data leakage. The so called BYOD system (Bring your own device) is becoming more and more popular. However, such a system can pose a big risk, because employees have sensitive company data saved on their private tablets and smartphones. Thanks to the Pictura encryption function, companies can easily prevent the browsing of sensitive data by an unauthorized person.
”We have already offered our clients several security applications for smartphones running on the Android and iOS platforms. TrustPort mobile applications are easy to use and they are highly effective, when talking in terms of safety.The TrustPort mobile security applications are also fully utilizable in a corporate sphere. And thus I believe, that Pictura functions will not only be attractive for individuals, but also for corporate clients“, says Marcela Parolkova, Sales director at TrustPort.
