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.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
"We are the public cloud providers. We are currently providing 50% of the resources they need for doing e-commerce business in China and we are hosting about 60% of mobile gaming in China," explained Yi Zheng, CPO and VP of Engineering at CDS Global Cloud, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their back-end AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT – especially in the connected home and office. Amazon is extending its reach by building on its dominant Cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strategy, recently announced Replenishment Services, the Echo/Alexa voice recognition control platform, the 6-7 strategic...
"Qosmos has launched L7Viewer, a network traffic analysis tool, so it analyzes all the traffic between the virtual machine and the data center and the virtual machine and the external world," stated Sebastien Synold, Product Line Manager at Qosmos, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

In his session at 19th Cloud Exp...
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands. What's more of a mystery is how to balance innovation on a fresh platform built from scratch with the legacy tech stack, product suite and customers that continue to serve as the business' foundation. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...
