You may recall that a few months ago we announced the inclusion of IRM capabilities in TouchDown, Nitrodesk’s popular email client for Android devices. TouchDown for Android uses Exchange ActiveSync IRM capabilities to handle protected content, enabling users to view, create and manage protected email in their devices. This has been very well received by users and IT administrators alike, since it means that Android users can now view ALL their email on their devices, including protected email.
We have just received news from Nitrodesk that they have released a version of their TouchDown email client for iOS, and that, of course, it includes all the IRM capabilities you’ve come to expect. This means that iPhone and iPad users can now view all their protected email in their phones and tablets, and they can also create protected emails on the devices, including protecting emails with Rights Policy Templates and Do Not Forward policies.
TouchDown for iOS also uses EAS IRM to handle Rights Management policies at the server, so there’s nothing to configure at the clients, you just get all the IRM functionality in your TouchDown email client by connecting it to an Exchange 2010 SP1 or later server that has EAS IRM enabled.
You can download TouchDown for iOS at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/touchdown-for-ios/id560596861?mt=8. You can also learn more about TouchDown support for RMS at http://www.nitrodesk.com/irm.aspx or you can contact Nitrodesk support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are other third party apps for both iOS and Android that support viewing of RMS protected email. Some, such as the TITUS apps, do not require the EAS IRM feature, so the email remains encrypted all the way to the mobile device. You can test these
