Ultra-secure mobile file storage
built on the patented HubVault™ technology
Store and organize all your files
in a custom folder structure
Add notes and photos directly
within the secure mobile vault
iFortress® provides a double encrypted enterprise-grade (AES 256-bit) security vault for your files, photos, and notes. The app enforces strict security, making it ideal for your most sensitive business and personal files.
iFortress is the only security app where neither the user id nor the master encryption key are stored on the device, yet you have access to your files at all times.
Available for the iPhone and the iPad.
The iFortress app allows you to create notes and take pictures, as well as import, arrange, and view documents...all within a secure mobile vault. Once the data is inside the vault, you no longer need to worry about data security, leakage, and loss.
Adding, organizing, and removing items from iFortress is simple. iFortress includes a custom file structure which enables you to deal easily with large numbers of notes and files of differing formats. Documents and files can be imported from other Apps or directly from iTunes.
The built-in note-taking feature allows you to take notes with the knowledge that the information will never leave the secure confines of iFortress. If needed, notes, documents, or images can also be emailed directly from iFortress.
The proprietary security layers of iFortress have been developed in response to enterprise concerns over 'secure' apps which provide only limited security with the encryption key stored on the device, making the files vulnerable to attack. The vault is so secure that even if your device is lost or stolen, the data within remains fully protected. If you deal with highly sensitive documents and data, there is no adequate substitute.
iFortress is built on the patented HubVault™ technology that is used to fully protect highly sensitive corporate and government documents.
Separate to iFortress, the CommandHub mobile app interfaces with, and only works with, the CommandHub high security document management web service. This app provides secure, automatic syncing of permitted documents to and from the web service as well as options to control the viewing and editing of documents. The mobile app ensures that documents are always secured independent of the device file system and are not compromised at any stage. This protection extends to secure document annotations.
The app’s simple-to-use interface belies the hardened security upon which it has been developed. Prior to being written to the file system, all data is double encrypted using AES 256-bit encryption with the encryption keys themselves encrypted with a master key that has 10 to the power of 77 possible values. Neither the master key nor the vault key is stored on the device and therefore is neither is able to be recovered during an attack.
iFortress allows you to create notes, take photos, store documents & images, and organize them within an app that combines simple to use functionality with enterprise-grade security.
The iFortress app is free to download in the app store.
Additional functionality can be enabled through in-app purchases.
iFortress uses a simple, intuitive interface that makes it easy for you to secure your information.
When you first open iFortress, you will be prompted to create a vault key.
It is recommended that you choose a vault key which is strong but also memorable. It is important to note that due to the highly secure nature of the mobile vault, your vault key is not stored on the device thus the vault key is not retrievable. We suggest that you store this vault key in a secure location (but certainly not on the back of your mobile device).
To open your vault:
If your vault key is correct, a list of folders, files, and notes will be displayed.
If you incorrectly enter your vault key, you will be prompted re-enter the vault key. If the vault key is entered incorrectly more than the allowable number of attempts, the entire contents of your vault will be deleted and you will be required to start again with a new vault key. You are able to set the default number of failed vault key attempts within the app settings screen. The default number of attempts is five.
If iTunes is configured to backup the data on your device, your iFortress files will be backed up in their highly encrypted state.
To create a note:
The name of the note will correspond to the first line of the text that you enter.
To create a folder:
To take a photo:
To import a photo:
To rearrange your folders and files:
NOTE: Folders will always be displayed above any files.
To access and update the iFortress configuration, tap the Settings icon (⚙) in the upper right corner. The following settings are available:
The Duress Password setting allows you to create a secondary password that you can enter as your vault key. This security feature is intended to be used if you are in a situation where you are being forced to unlock your vault and want a specific action to occur. There are two options:
To view the help file:
To delete an item:
To rename or move a file:
To open a file in another app:
To email a file:
To edit or delete a folder:
You can add a file in one of two ways:
Option 1: Open in...
Apple iOS apps have a feature called 'Open In...'. This gives you the ability to open a file in one application, then take the opened file and open it using a different app.
Option 2: iTunes
We strive to make iFortress the best app possible for securing your files, photos, and notes. If you have any suggestions for improving the app or would like to provide additional feedback, please send your email to: email@example.com.
