- There also is a version for iPad and an iPhone version .


Overview


Work Folders is a Windows Server feature since 20012R2 that allows individual employees to access their files securely from inside and outside the corporate environment. This app connects to it and enables file access on your Android Phone and Tablet. Work Folders enables this while allowing the organization’s IT department to fully secure that data.

This app features an intuitive UI, selective sync, end-to-end encryption and search.
In order to view files one can open-in the file in an appropriate app on the device.

Work Folders App on Android – Features




  • Pin files for offline viewing.
    Saves storage space by fully showing all available files but locally storing and keeping in sync only the files you care about.

  • Files are stored encrypted at all times. On the wire and at rest on the device.

  • Access to the app is protected by an app passcode – keeping others out even if the device is left unlocked and unattended.

  • Allows for DIGEST and Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) authentication mechanisms including multi factor authentication.

  • Search for files and folders

  • Open files in other apps that might be specialized to work with a certain file type.




[caption id="attachment_5613" align="alignleft" width="879"] Work Folders offers encryption at rest and super fast access on-demand. Quite difficult to take that screenshot :)[/caption]
