Proofpoint Mobile Archive: Now Available for Android!
From the "you asked for it, you got it" department: Previously available only on the Apple iOS (iPhone, iPad) platform, our Proofpoint Mobile Archive app is now available for Android devices.
The Proofpoint Mobile Archive app lets users of Proofpoint Enterprise Archive (our cloud-based email archiving solution) access their archived email from anywhere, at any time. The app lets you search your entire email archive from your iPhone or Android device, allowing you to quickly find messages, view message details, and retrieve messages to your inbox.
The new Android version of this app is part of the latest release of the Proofpoint Enterprise platform (announced today in our press release here).
Mobility is a big theme of this new release and, in addition to the Android version of the Mobile Archive app, the release includes enhancements to Proofpoint's support for mobile email encryption and decryption (which were already very strong). The enhanced mobile decryption user interface takes advantage of the latest smartphone and tablet technologies to display a web interface that looks and feels like a native application, making it even easier for Proofpoint Encryption users (and any recipient of a Proofpoint-encrypted email message) to decrypt, read, and respond from mobile devices.
This video overview demonstrates the iPhone/iOS version of the Proofpoint Mobile Archive app, and how it enables anytime/anywhere access to archived messages:
This next video demonstrates the previous version of the "decrypt assist" features of Proofpoint Encryption, which allows any email recipients on any mobile smartphone or tablet with a web browser (including Android, BlackBerry, iPhone and Windows 7 Phone) to easily decrypt and respond to messages encrypted with Proofpoint Encryption:
And while it's not part of today's announcement, I wanted to remind Proofpoint Enterprise administrators that our Proofpoint Mobile Dashboard app (currently available for Apple iOS devices) gives you access to global spam stats, the status of your support tickets and other information on your Proofpoint Enterprise deployments:
