Project, workgroup, and topic-related contact information is processed on iOS as a private contact.

So these can be read out and transferred to the Internet and processed.

with regard to privacy
With SecureContact you fulfill these important principles of the European General Data Protection Regulation ( DS-GVO ):
The solution is easy to install and adapts to your infrastructure. You do not even have to manage the device.
In addition to the resolution of incoming calls, SecureContact Pro offers even more options. For example, users (on iOS) see the name of the missed caller in the call history. Activating a vacation mode also makes it possible to be unreachable on vacation for business contacts, unless the user unlocks individual contacts. The connection to communication tools such as WhatsApp, Skype and Co. is possible. In this case, however, only the telephone number is transferred to the respective communication tool, without the rest of the data record being disclosed.
How do the addresses in SecureContact come from?
So that contacts can be held in SecureContact, they must first be transferred to the app. For this SecureContact offers different possibilities
Manual system: The user can create his contact data himself by hand in the app. The data is then stored on the device, but can not be viewed from the outside.
Import by file: The import of files is possible with SecureContact. Unprotected vCard files (single / group contacts) can be imported as well as SecureContact files. Details about the SecureContact file can be found in the chapter "Security is a top priority". The files to be imported can be transferred with any communication tool or stored on compatible file shares (DocumentProvider).
Import via HTTPS / VPN: SecureContact files can be imported via HTTPS connection, which can also point to an in-house server via VPN. If this import rule is specified by an MDM system (Mobile Device Management), the data is automatically updated on a regular basis. The regularity can not be made more concrete on iOS systems, since this depends on the use of the device by the user.
SecureContact not only stores all data in encrypted form, it also makes the transfer of data secure. The files created in this way are called SecureContact files.
These files are exported fully encrypted and supplemented with their own authorization model. As a result, companies, for example, can decide whether the recipient is allowed to export the data themselves and possibly even edit it.
Connection to Exchange: SecureContact can connect EWS sources directly. You can access local Exchange installations just as you would on O365 as a data source. To do this, define the services URL that can be used to communicate with your Exchange Web Services (EWS). SecureContact basically includes support for:
- NT LAN Manager (NTLM)-Authentifizierung
There is a platform-independent server software for use in companies. It is able to transfer contact files to SecureContact files via a batch process (CMD line tool).
Once in SecureContact recorded contacts should always be disclosed only in SecureContact file format. This gives you control over the permissions of the recipient.
Set up SecureContact
For businesses, SecureContact offers MDM system support. As a result, companies are able to distribute the software centrally and transfer it to SecureContact with their own specifications (configurations). This prevents employees from accessing certain communication tools from SecureContact. Also the possibilities for import / export can be determined with this configuration. If a device is not managed by the MDM system, the user can download the app himself from the AppStore. In this case, he can configure the app himself and access the permissions models for imported records described in the section "Security is capitalized".
