Voltage Security has extended its Secure Mail platform to the iOS and Android platforms.
The company said that the applications will allow users to access the enterprise email security platform to send and receive encrypted messages.
Running as a native application, the mobile Secure Mail software will link with the device's regular email client, launching when a user decides to send or receive a secured email message. The application then allows users to sign in to the Secure Mail service to send, receive and decrypt messages.
Mark Schweighardt, Voltage Security director of product management, told V3 that the company was looking to make the software resemble the built-in iPhone, iPad and Android email applications as much as possible.
"Having the native application integration makes everything a lot more seamless for users," Schweighardt explained.
"We have fully integrated with each of these device platforms and interfaces to the fullest extent possible."
Because the service utilises policy-based controls and eliminates the need for locally-stored encryption keys, the application is able to be quickly installed and run with multiple web addresses and companies.
The mobile application will be offered as part of the larger enterprise security suite. The apps themselves will be offered as free downloads, potentially allowing commercial groups such as financial institutions to offer secure document transactions to customers.
In addition to Voltage Security's own authentication tools, the service supports Microsoft's LDAPS authentication system.
While the service is currently limited to iOS and Android devices, Voltage plans to extend the platform to the BlackBerry OS later this summer and possibly other mobile platforms in the future.
