For better data separation on the managed devices, Sophos Mobile Control provides the Sophos
container apps Sophos Secure Email and Sophos Secure Workspace:
- Sophos Secure Email is an app for Android and iOS devices that
provides a secure container for managing your email, calendar and contacts.
- Sophos Secure Workspace is an app for Android and iOS devices
that allows users to access encrypted files stored in the cloud. Files can be decrypted
and viewed in a seamless way. Encrypted files can be handed over by other apps and uploaded to
one of the supported cloud storage providers. Alternatively, the documents can be stored
locally within the app.
With Sophos Secure Workspace, you can read files encrypted by
SafeGuard Cloud Storage or SafeGuard Data Exchange. Both are modules of SafeGuard Enterprise
or one of its different editions. They allow you to encrypt files using a local key. These
local keys are derived from a passphrase that is entered by a user. You can only decrypt a
file when you know the passphrase that was used to encrypt the file.
The Sophos container provides:
- Centrally defined password rules
- Password rules for all container apps
- Single-Sign-On for all container apps
- Sophos Secure Workspace document settings
- Sophos Secure Workspace browser settings
- Sophos Secure Email settings
You can manage the Sophos apps with Sophos Mobile Control
Note: In order to manage the Sophos container apps, they must be distributed using Sophos Mobile
Control. If users already have an unmanaged version of Sophos Secure Workspace installed on
their devices, they must uninstall it first and then install the managed version.
