DocWallet - der sichere Dokumentenmanager für iPad und PC

BONN, Deutschland, 24. Februar 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DocWallet heißt die Lösung der Deutschen Post für alle, die hohe Datensicherheit beim Einsatz mobiler Endgeräte brauchen. Zuverlässigkeit und Bedienerfreundlichkeit des Systems hat sich bereits weltweit herumgesprochen. In den ersten fünf Wochen nach dem Markteintritt wurden knapp 30 000 Downloads der App registriert. Dabei ist besonders in den USA eine steigende Nachfrage zu verzeichnen.

Worin liegt der rasche Erfolg von DocWallet begründet?

Hinter DocWallet verbirgt sich eine persönliche elektronische Dokumentenmappe für iPad und Window-PCs. Die Vertraulichkeit der Dokumente ist durch Ende-zu-Ende-Verschlüsselung (AES/RSA) über eigene, dedizierte Server in Deutschland sichergestellt. Schon während der Synchronisation mit einem PC werden die Daten verschlüsselt übertragen. Dateien und Ordner lassen sich  nur auf autorisierten Endgeräten sichtbar machen.

Tablets und Smartphones sind privat und in modernen Arbeitsumgebungen Alltag geworden. Gerade das iPad wird dabei immer öfter dienstlich genutzt. Bei der Einbindung mobiler Geräte in die IT von Unternehmen blieb ein Problem bislang ungelöst: Wie lassen sich vertrauliche Dokumente im mobilen Einsatz sicher schützen? Die Deutsche Post hat hierfür jetzt DocWallet auf den Markt gebracht.

Produktmanager Marco Hauprich: „Es ist ein einfach zu bedienender und gleichzeitig sicherer Service, der den Usern von iPads das Leben erleichtert. Angesprochen sind alle, die bei hohen Mobilitätsansprüchen stets Zugriff auf persönliche Dokumente haben wollen und besonderen Wert auf Datensicherheit legen. Ein vergleichbares Produkt, das Nutzerfreundlichkeit mit solchem Sicherheitsstandard kombiniert, gibt es nicht."

Harald Lemke, bei der Deutschen Post technisch verantwortlich für DocWallet: „Unser Sicherheitskonzept berücksichtigt die besorgniserregende Entwicklung, dass zentrale Server zunehmend Ziele von Angriffen sind. Deshalb werden Dokumente ausschließlich verschlüsselt übertragen und gespeichert."

Er ergänzt mit Blick auf jüngste Hacker-Attacken gegen prominente Cloud-Provider: „Unser  System ist so aufgebaut, dass sich auf dem DocWallet-Server weder Schlüssel noch Benutzerpasswörter finden. Deshalb bleiben vertrauliche Dokumente unserer Kunden selbst im Falle eines Einbruchs geschützt. Vertrauliches Schriftgut-Management gehört bekanntlich immer schon zu den Kernkompetenzen der Deutschen Post. DocWallet reiht sich hier nahtlos ein."

Mit DocWallet können Anwender also ohne Risiko

  • PDF-Dokumente speichern, lesen und in Ordnern verwalten
  • PDF-Dokumente zwischen Windows-PCs und iPads synchronisieren
  • PDF-Dokumente auf dem iPad mit Anmerkungen versehen

DocWallet besteht aus einem Windows-Client und der dazugehörigen iPad-App. Diese App mit integriertem Reader ermöglicht die Nutzung von Dokumenten auf dem iPad. Die Synchronisierungsmöglichkeit mit PCs stellt sicher, dass die Daten auch bei paralleler Nutzung mehrerer Geräte immer auf aktuellen Stand bleiben. Dabei lässt sich der DocWallet Account für beliebig viele Geräte (PCs, iPads) einsetzen.

Alle autorisierten Anwender sind stets auf einem Stand - ein Klick und das gesamte Team ist UpToDate. Post-Manager Marco Hauprich: „Dadurch wird die alltägliche Informationsversorgung für mobile Anwender erheblich beschleunigt und vereinfacht."

Die sichere Lösung für modernen Dokumentenschutz ist unter www.docwallet.com und im App-Store von Apple downloadbar. Im ersten Monat ist die Nutzung kostenlos, danach sind die Preise gestaffelt: Ein Monat kostet 5,99 Euro, drei Monate 14,99 Euro, ein Jahr 49,99 Euro und zwei Jahre 89,99 Euro.

The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations. Imagine ...
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...
There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
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 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!
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate.
