Work documents (iOS Sophos container policy)

With the Work documents configuration you manage the Work documents storage provider in Sophos Secure Workspace.

Configure storage providers

For each storage provider you can define the following settings separately:




The storage provider is available in the app.


Users are allowed to add files from the storage provider to the app's Favorites list for offline use.

Open in (encrypted)

Users can share encrypted files with other apps via Open In.

Open in (unencrypted)

Users can share unencrypted files with other apps via Open In.


Users can copy parts of a document and paste them into other apps.

Enterprise provider settings

For Egnyte and WebDAV provider, also referred to as enterprise provider, you can centrally define server settings and login credentials. These cannot be changed by users.

Credential settings that you do not define centrally can be chosen by the users in the app's provider credential screens.

For example you can centrally define the server and user account to be used but you can leave the password field undefined. Users then would have to know the password when accessing the storage provider.
