Ultra-secure mobile vault for documents, photos, and notes

iFortress® provides a double encrypted enterprise-grade (AES 256-bit) security vault for your files, photos, and notes. The app enforces strict security, making it ideal for your most sensitive business and personal files.


iFortress is the only security app where neither the user id nor the master encryption key are stored on the device, yet you have access to your files at all times.


Available for the iPhone and the iPad.

App Store Badge



The iFortress app allows you to create notes and take pictures, as well as import, arrange, and view documents...all within a secure mobile vault. Once the data is inside the vault, you no longer need to worry about data security, leakage, and loss.

Adding, organizing, and removing items from iFortress is simple. iFortress includes a custom file structure which enables you to deal easily with large numbers of notes and files of differing formats. Documents and files can be imported from other Apps or directly from iTunes.

The built-in note-taking feature allows you to take notes with the knowledge that the information will never leave the secure confines of iFortress. If needed, notes, documents, or images can also be emailed directly from iFortress.

The proprietary security layers of iFortress have been developed in response to enterprise concerns over 'secure' apps which provide only limited security with the encryption key stored on the device, making the files vulnerable to attack. The vault is so secure that even if your device is lost or stolen, the data within remains fully protected. If you deal with highly sensitive documents and data, there is no adequate substitute.

iFortress is built on the patented HubVault™ technology that is used to fully protect highly sensitive corporate and government documents.


Separate to iFortress, the CommandHub mobile app interfaces with, and only works with, the CommandHub high security document management web service. This app provides secure, automatic syncing of permitted documents to and from the web service as well as options to control the viewing and editing of documents. The mobile app ensures that documents are always secured independent of the device file system and are not compromised at any stage. This protection extends to secure document annotations.


The app’s simple-to-use interface belies the hardened security upon which it has been developed. Prior to being written to the file system, all data is double encrypted using AES 256-bit encryption with the encryption keys themselves encrypted with a master key that has 10 to the power of 77 possible values. Neither the master key nor the vault key is stored on the device and therefore is neither is able to be recovered during an attack.

iFortress uses a simple, intuitive interface that makes it easy for you to secure your information.

When you first open iFortress, you will be prompted to create a vault key.

  1. Enter your Vault Key in the 1st text box (required)
  2. Validate your Vault Key by entering it in the 2nd text box (required)
  3. Enter a Vault Key Hint (optional)
  4. Tap the Create Vault button

It is recommended that you choose a vault key which is strong but also memorable. It is important to note that due to the highly secure nature of the mobile vault, your vault key is not stored on the device thus the vault key is not retrievable. We suggest that you store this vault key in a secure location (but certainly not on the back of your mobile device).

To open your vault:

  1. Enter your vault key
  2. Tap the Unlock button

If your vault key is correct, a list of folders, files, and notes will be displayed.

If you incorrectly enter your vault key, you will be prompted re-enter the vault key. If the vault key is entered incorrectly more than the allowable number of attempts, the entire contents of your vault will be deleted and you will be required to start again with a new vault key. You are able to set the default number of failed vault key attempts within the app settings screen. The default number of attempts is five.

If iTunes is configured to backup the data on your device, your iFortress files will be backed up in their highly encrypted state.

  1. Tap the Plus symbol (+)
  2. Tap Add Note

To access and update the iFortress configuration, tap the Settings icon (⚙) in the upper right corner. The following settings are available:

  • Vault Key Attempts: This setting controls the number of failed attempts that you are allowed when attempting to access your vault. When the number of attempts is reached, all data within your vault will be deleted instantly.
  • App Lock Delay: This setting controls the amount of time that the app will remain unlocked when the app is placed in the background as you use another app on your device.

The Duress Password setting allows you to create a secondary password that you can enter as your vault key. This security feature is intended to be used if you are in a situation where you are being forced to unlock your vault and want a specific action to occur. There are two options:

  1. Option 1: Open an Alternate Vault: If this option is selected, whenever you enter your duress password (during login), you are immediately taken to an alternate (secondary) vault instead of your primary vault. Since there is no indication that you are in the alternate vault, you are the only person aware that this alternate vault exists.
  2. Option 2: Delete the Vault: If this option is selected, whenever you enter your duress password (during login), all files in your vault are immediately deleted.
