DocWallet -- le gestionnaire de documents sécurisé pour iPad et PC

BONN, Allemagne, 24 février 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DocWallet est la nouvelle solution de Deutsche Post destinée à quiconque exige une sécurité supplémentaire des documents lors de l'utilisation des appareils mobiles. La fiabilité et la convivialité du système sont déjà connues dans le monde entier. Dans les cinq premières semaines suivant le lancement de l'application, on a enregistré un peu moins de 30 000 téléchargements et on constate une demande croissante tout particulièrement aux États-Unis.

Que fait le succès fulgurant de DocWallet ?

DocWallet est une application pour documents électroniques adaptée aux besoins de l'utilisateur pour iPad et PC Windows. La confidentialité des documents est assurée par le biais du cryptage des documents de bout en bout (AES/RSA) en utilisant des serveurs DocWallet spécialisés en Allemagne. Les données sont également cryptées lors de la synchronisation avec votre PC. Ces fichiers ne peuvent être visualisés qu'à partir d'appareils autorisés.

Les tablettes et les smartphones sont devenus des accessoires permanents de la vie personnelle et professionnelle de tous les jours. Le iPad tout particulièrement est de plus en plus utilisé sur le lieu de travail. Toutefois, l'intégration des appareils mobiles dans le système informatique d'une société posait un problème jusqu'à présent non résolu : comment assurer la protection sans faille des documents confidentiels destinés à l'usage mobile ? DocWallet constitue la réponse de Deutsche Post à ce problème.

« Il s'agit d'un service convivial, complètement sécurisé et qui facilitera l'utilisation du iPad. Il est destiné aux individus à mobilité élevée qui nécessitent l'accès continu à des documents personnels et un niveau élevé de sécurité des données », explique Marco Hauprich, chef de produit pour DocWallet chez Deutsche Post. « Il n'existe pas de produit comparable sur le marché qui puisse combiner des normes de sécurité rigoureuses et une interface conviviale. »

Harald Lemke est le responsable technique pour DocWallet chez Deutsche Post. « Notre concept de sécurité répond à une réalité inquiétante qui fait des serveurs centraux la cible des attaques informatiques de plus en plus souvent », précise M. Lemke. « C'est la raison pour laquelle DocWallet assure le transfert et la sauvegarde des documents dans un format crypté uniquement. »

Faisant référence aux récentes attaques des pirates informatiques sur des fournisseurs d'informatique en nuage très en vue, M. Lemke rajoute : « Notre système est configuré de manière à ne jamais stocker les codes de sécurité ni les mots de passe des utilisateurs sur le serveur DocWallet, ce qui fait que même en cas de brèche de sécurité, les pirates informatiques n'ont pas accès aux documents confidentiels de nos clients. La gestion des documents confidentiels fait partie depuis toujours des compétences de base de Deutsche Post et DocWallet cadre parfaitement avec cette tradition. »

Les utilisateurs de DocWallet peuvent :

  • Sauvegarder et lire des documents PDF et organiser des dossiers
  • Synchroniser des documents PDF entre les PC Windows et les iPad
  • Ajouter des commentaires dans des documents PDF sur iPad

Le tout sans les risques habituels liés à la sécurité.

DocWallet comprend un client Windows et l'application iPad afférente avec lecteur intégré, ce qui rend possibles la visualisation et la gestion des documents sur iPad. La fonctionnalité de synchronisation avec le PC garantit que les documents sont toujours à jour, y compris lorsqu'on y accède depuis plusieurs appareils simultanément. Les utilisateurs peuvent également autoriser plusieurs appareils (PC, iPad) pour leur compte DocWallet.

Chaque utilisateur autorisé est toujours au courant – il suffit d'un clic pour que l'ensemble de l'équipe le soit aussi. « DocWallet peut être utilisé par des équipes entières », explique Marco Hauprich, directeur de Deutsche Post. « Il est ainsi plus simple et plus rapide de fournir aux utilisateurs mobiles des informations à jour. »

DocWallet, la solution sécurisée de protection moderne des documents, est disponible sur www.docwallet.com et dans l'App Store d'Apple. DocWallet est offert gratuitement le premier mois, et aux prix suivants par la suite : 5,99 euros pour un mois, 14,99 euros pour trois mois, 49,99 euros pour une année et 89,99 euros pour deux ans.

De plus amples renseignements sont disponibles sur www.docwallet.com et dans l'App Store d'Apple.

The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication.

P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
