Available in February - Protectstar iTreasure, The Most Secure Pocket-Size Data Vault

January 29, 2013
After some delays in the development process, Protectstar Inc. today is pleased to announce the February release of its newest security app for mobile devices, Protectstar iTreasure for iOS. The app allows iDevice owners to store text documents, photos, videos, audio files, financial records, or any other files inside a data vault, where all contents are encrypted using powerful 256-bit AES algorithms. Featuring intuitive touch control, iTreasure includes the Protectstar Smart Viewer, which permits users to view, read, send, share, compress, or print any encrypted file format from within the app.

The Smart Viewer is capable of opening a wide variety of file formats, making it unnecessary to employ native apps to open different file formats. For example, the Smart Viewer lets users open Word, Excel, Keynote, Pages, Numbers, Zip and PDF files from within the iTreasure data vault. The app also supports AirPlay and AirPrint. A full-screen option with zoom allows easy sharing of photos and notes via E-Mail, Facebook and Twitter.

iTreasure is fully compatible with iCloud and Dropbox, allowing completely secure remote storage of encrypted data. In the event that a user's iDevice is lost or stolen, the entire contents of the user's secure data vault is deleted in such a way that the data cannot be recovered, in accordance with military security standards, such as the US Department of Defense's DoD 5220.22-M E method. The optionally available Protectstar iFile Server is seamlessly compatible with iTreasure. This function allows users to upload and download all of their files, documents, videos, music, and pictures to and from their data vault via drag and drop in their web browser.

Feature Highlights:
* Store any kind of file securely in the iTreasure data vault
* 256-bit AES encryption
* Protectstar Smart Viewer opens any encrypted file
* Integrated Dropbox and iCloud connectivity
* Support for Apple AirPrint and AirPlay
* View, read, send, share, compress, or print any file format from within the app
* Protectstar iFile Server (coming in March as a free update)

Founded in 2004, Protectstar was among the first companies to check mobile devices for security risks, a pioneering effort leading to significant security improvements in mobile and smart phones. In 2006, it released Data Shredder for Windows, which has become an industry standard in secure data deletion. The company's iShredder for iOS, released in 2011, is the leading iOS data erasure app that protects against third parties restoring deleted files. Protectstar has more than 200,000 customers in more than 30 countries, from industrial, business, institutional, government, and military sectors, as well as individual users.

Regardless of whether it's your CV, vacation snapshots, personal videos, account statements, or secret notes, you need to safeguard your confidential data against unauthorized third parties and hackers - at all times, and without exception." commented Christopher Bohn of Protectstar.
