GULF BREEZE, FL: AppRiver, a provider of email messaging and Web security solutions, launched, CipherPost Pro, a secure, simple and powerful email app for Windows Phone 8.

 The CipherPost Pro lets businesses extend AppRiver's powerful cloud-based encryption service to Windows Phone 8 at no additional charge.  It easily integrates with the company's current Microsoft offerings, including hosted Exchange and Office 365, adding an important layer of security. 

David Liberatore, Senior Director, Technical Product Management, AppRiver, said, "Leaving your home or office shouldn't mean leaving your email security behind.  As more and more people rely on mobile devices for business communications, these apps ensure your sensitive data stays protected." 

AppRiver's CipherPost Pro for Windows allows users to create, read, track and reply to encrypted messages on any smartphone or tablet.  As a cloud-based native solution, the app requires no enterprise installation while still ensuring global administrative control and enforcement of compliance policies. As no private data is stored on devices using the app, confidential information is well protected in the event the device is lost or stolen.

 Key features of the new CipherPost Pro App include: Compose and Track New Messages on the Go, Real-Time Message Tracking and Recall, Native Device App Integration, Mobile Device Management Integration, Data Loss Protection, and Compliance Features.

The compose and track new messages on the go feature allows mobile users to access, compose and send encrypted messages on the go, enabling truly anytime, anywhere secure communication and collaboration.

In the real-time message tracking and recall feature, CipherPost Pro's patented 'Delivery Slip', allows users to track the receipt of secure messages in real-time, see if messages have been read, forwarded, printed or deleted, or even recall a message even after it has been read.

The native device app integration lets Windows phone users enjoy their familiar phone features and experience while optimizing battery life and bandwidth.

The MDM integration is ideal for organizations and partners that embrace BYOD, the app can be deployed through MDM systems without requiring enterprise-level installation of software or hardware. Policy administrators can globally manage compliance policies on any device. The data loss protection feature ensures that all messaging data is protected in the cloud, never stored on the device. Access to the app can be remotely enabled or disabled in the event a device is lost or stolen, additionally protecting the user's secure account against unauthorized access.

With the Compliance Feature, regulations such as HIPAA, PSQIA, PCI DSS, Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, FINRA Rule 8210, NHS security policy and many others specify strict requirements for the protection of confidential and personally identifiable information (PII). These regulations include clear guidelines for protecting such information during transportation and storage. The CipherPost Pro App helps maintain compliance on company-issued or personal smartphones and tablets, reducing the risk of data leakage with minimal administrative effort and technical impact. In the "Bring Your Own Device" era, such protection is increasingly important.
