AD/LDAP Authentication for Mobile Devices in Offline mode

Protect sensitive data with automatic logout in case of inactivity, even when offline

Not again a new Password!

Data protection and digital access control is important and a strong password is the way to go. But we all know the challenge: So many apps, so many user IDs and passwords. And at some point it becomes too much for the User. They use passwords several times, or write them down for everyone to see. And thus undermine the best safety concept. But fear not – we added some cool new options such as AD/LDAP Authentication to our Mobile Device solutions:

“Mobile Solution” and “Offline Meal Ordering” both now support log in with Windows User ID and Password for existing Windows domain users! This means that users can simply use the credentials they are familiar with without compromising on security. After all, us humans are creatures of habit. We like our trusted routines.

Key benefits:

Protect sensitive data
Prevent unauthorized usage by automatic logout
Convenient use of the familiar Windows ID and PW
Works even when working offline


No connection? No problem!

As an added benefit, we also support offline login with AD/LDAP . This means that once a user logged in successfully while the device is online, the encrypted credentials will be stored locally on the device. All subsequent logins to Mobile Solution application will be possible offline with those locally stored credentials on this device. This means that nothing stands in the way of using AD/LDAP credentials even in places without a reliable Wifi connection.

Offline authentication with AD/LDAP can be enabled or disabled in a global configuration, just as your organization requires.

Automated logout: A surefire way to improve Application Security and Data Safety

We also added a global setting for automatic logout to our Mobile Device Management. On the respective device Users will be logged out of the application after the inactivity time limit you set expires. This way the data remains protected even if the device is accidentally left behind, e.g. during a break. This setting can be overruled for individual power users who like to hang on to their device all day.

We all know the importance of data security. In the field of Healthcare, for example, you first and foremost want to protect sensitive data. When a device is left logged in lying around somewhere, someone could easily browse through the Application. Devices are lying around sometimes, that’s just a fact. With an automated logout time limit set, you can be sure to keep prying eyes away from sensitive data.

And that’s not limited to healthcare data. For example, also in warehousing pricey stock, better have the device logout automatically before non-authorized persons give it a go, …
