[prMac.com] Miami, Florida - ProtectStar, Inc. today is pleased to announce the December release of its newest security app for mobile devices, ProtectStar iTreasure for iOS. The app allows iDevice owners to store text documents, photos, videos, financial records, or any other files inside a data vault, where all contents are encrypted using powerful 256-bit AES algorithms. Featuring intuitive touch control, iTreasure includes the ProtectStar Smart Viewer, which permits users to view, read, send, share, compress, or print any encrypted file format from within the app.
The Smart Viewer is capable of opening a wide variety of file formats, making it unnecessary to employ native apps to open different file formats. For example, the Smart Viewer lets users open Word, Excel, Keynote, and PDF files from within the iTreasure data vault. The app also supports AirPlay and AirPrint. A full-screen option with zoom allows easy sharing of photos and notes via Facebook and Twitter.
iTreasure is fully compatible with iCloud and Dropbox, allowing completely secure remote storage of encrypted data. In the event that a user's iDevice is lost or stolen, the entire contents of the user's secure data vault is deleted in such a way that the data cannot be recovered, in accordance with military security standards, such as the US Department of Defense's DoD 5220.22-M E method. The optionally available ProtectStar iFile Server is seamlessly compatible with iTreasure. This function allows users to upload and download all of their files, documents, videos, music, and pictures to and from their data vault via drag and drop in their web browser.

In 2006, it released Data Shredder for Windows, which has become an industry standard in secure data deletion. The company's iShredder for iOS, released in 2011, is the leading iOS data erasure app that protects against third parties restoring deleted files. ProtectStar has more than 200,000 customers in more than 30 countries, from industrial, business, institutional, government, and military sectors, as well as individual users. ProtectStar plans the December 2012 release of iLocker and iTreasure.
