REDWOOD CITY, Calif. and SINGAPORE, July 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Digify today launched the mobile version of its self-destructing, view-only content protection service for professionals to privately share their business content. Digify's freemium service ensures that users can control, track and protect files on iOS and Android-based smartphones without concern that their private documents or photos will be copied or redistributed after they are sent. The Company also announced that it was named "Most Innovative Company" at the inaugural RSA Conference Asia Pacific & Japan 2014 Innovation Sandbox.
Files shared using Digify cannot be forwarded, downloaded, copied, saved or uploaded elsewhere, and can be set to self-destruct in one minute to one month. Digify's advanced content protection helps build trusted, collaborative relationships with partners and colleagues. The company's desktop version will be introduced later this year.
"Digify is honored by RSA Innovation Sandbox judges' recognition of the real-world applicability of our platform, and the simplicity of how users can protect sensitive information with our service," said Augustine Lim, co-founder and CEO of Digify. "Before Digify, there were many tools for sharing files but no easy, inexpensive way for most professionals to protect and track access to information once it was sent to someone else. After downloading files a recipient was able to forward or upload them anywhere on the web. Digify enables users to effectively share, control and protect ideas and content from wherever it is stored with the comfort that they will not go beyond the intended recipient."
"Innovation Sandbox was introduced to this region for the very first time and we were impressed by the level of innovation and knowledge in cybersecurity technologies displayed by the finalists," said Dr. Herbert (Hugh) Thompson, head judge of the Innovation Sandbox and world-renowned expert on IT security. "Digify demonstrated it was the most innovative by highlighting a simple and inexpensive way to address a recurring challenge of controlling and protecting ideas and information."
Digify's service is tightly integrated with storage services, such as Dropbox, allowing the millions of Dropbox business users to more easily and securely share and maintain control of their critical documents, presentations, PDFs and images. Users can now safely browse and send a Dropbox file straight from the Digify app. On iOS devices, if recipients try to take a screenshot, the sender will be notified and the file unshared. On all other platforms (Android, Windows, Mac) screenshots are blocked totally. Statistics in the Digify app shows who has seen it, for how long, and how often.
"Digify lets people track and better understand who has viewed the files they have sent in order to gauge the interest of recipients. Senders can unshare the file anytime after sending, if sharing becomes an issue," concludes Lim.

How Digify Works
Digify doesn't store your files on its servers or allow recipient downloads. Digify converts senders' files to an intermediate format for temporary display by Digify's viewer via document streaming. Recipients cannot download content to their own devices, or share it with others. Digify also deletes the original files from its server after conversion. Once a file has self-destructed for all intended recipients, Digify deletes the intermediate file from its servers so that it's gone for good. Digify supports PDF, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and photo files.
Only you and the recipient can access shared content. Digify encrypts data at every point when it's in transit between a device and a recipient, and when it's at rest on a server. Data is stored using strong, multi-factor encryption, each object with a unique key. Digify uses the 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256), one of the strongest block ciphers available.
Protects your files in multiple ways. Digify detects and prevents screenshots and other methods of capturing information from a device, including via tools such as Apple Airplay or Droid @ Screen. Its desktop versions protect against known screen-capture and recording software, and won't let the app run in a virtual machine for external recording.
Digify was founded in 2011 by a team of professionals who saw the need for a simple way to control and protect ideas and content easily, freely and effectively. Digify is a freemium ephemeral content protection service for professionals to send and view protected self-destructing files on mobile and desktop. Using Digify, users can keep their content private after sending. Digify is tightly integrated with storage services, such as Dropbox.
