Cisco Business Class Email
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
The Cisco Business Class Email (BCE) application helps encrypt your email and provides enhanced security features. To use the BCE application to open a secure email that you received in the iOS email application, touch and hold the attached securedoc.html file, then select “Open in Cisco BCE.”
NOTE: To send an encrypted email, the Cisco BCE application requires access to the Cisco Registered Envelope Service or Cisco IronPort Encryption Appliance.
Cisco BCE provides enhanced email security features such as read receipts, email recall, email expiration, and forward/reply control. Additionally, BCE removes the complexity of encryption and key management, so users can send and receive highly secure messages directly from their mobile devices. The primary benefits of the Cisco BCE application are:
• Confidentiality: BCE encrypts email to protect its confidentiality during transit.
• Encrypted email control: You have complete control over the emails you send, even after they are sent. The capabilities are:
• Read receipt: Sends a read receipt when the recipient opens an email.
• Email locking (enhanced recall): Gives you the ability to lock the decryption key,
disabling decryption for that email.
• Email expiration: Sets an expiration date for the email.
• Forward/reply control: Allows or prevents the recipient to forward, reply, or reply all. To maintain the security of your replies, you cannot change the list of recipients.
If you are an end user and have any concerns, please contact your organization’s support department. If you are a system administrator having difficulty configuring or using the application, please contact your designated Cisco support point of contact.
What's New in Version 3.1.1
SDK 7.0.0-034 integrated with feature regarding usage of established cryptographic libraries, and approved cryptographic primitives and parameters.
Ok, it works....but....
Ok, this app does work as advertised, but as all the previous reviews state, it is not user friendly and certainly not intuitive. One thing I did find out is the setup procedure will NOT work using Safari on an Iphone, you just get into this endless loop of trying to set up a password. I tried Firefox (mobile) on my IPhone and everything worked the first time. I tied the app to my hotmail account and it opened the encrypted email with no problem. I haven't tried to reply or author an email yet but I see no reason why it shouldn't work.
Worst software of the century nominee!
I received and sent a message using this (awfully hard to use, even for this security expert) secure email system.
Wow, this Cisco system is impressively awful. Sending a message was also extremely extremely difficult. Even for this email security expert! Wow!
The system is so broken for example that I was unable to send a reply because it considered the address that it sent the message from to be invalid! The address was in fact a valid according to the IETF RFCs that, if I recall correctly, Cisco helped write!
II used this app with the mail app that came standard on my iPhone. It was a pain to set up but then worked ok - except I think the Remember Password button is just decoration. I recently had to start getting work emails using Outlook mobile. I have tried and tried to use it to open secure documents, without success. I give up! If I need to see a secure document it'll have to wait till I get to a desktop.
