Will Migrating to Android Limit Access to RMS Protected Documents?


I recently decided to switch from my iPhone to an Android device (LG G4). It wasn’t system functionality that made me switch to Android, but the price (and the ability to swap batteries). However, I now have to face the fact that I have lost some of the functionality I was used to, and some of the apps I used daily. For organizations that have a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policy like TITUS does, it is important that your business apps support key functionality across platforms.

I often collaborate with colleagues using a Box folder to share files. With TITUS Classification for Mobile, I am still able to access the Box folder from my Android mobile as I had on iOS. I can see and edit the classification, and the changes take place immediately so the next collaborator who accesses the document will see that the classification has been changed. This is important because as the classification changes, so do the policies that govern how that information is shared. “Public” documents are much more portable than “Restricted” documents.

More importantly, I still need mobile access to documents and emails that have been protected using Microsoft RMS. Without it, my mobile device is useless for work. Thankfully, TITUS Classification for Mobile provides the same capabilities on Android and iOS. I can open RMS protected emails, attachments, and any other RMS protected files that I download to my device. The rights assigned to me, such as the ability to forward, copy, or print, are all enforced. So, even when I am on my mobile, I can still participate in my daily workflow as I would from my laptop.

Give it a try for yourself!
