Optimizing file access in the iOS business container

The Cortado Document Provider for iOS

The business container for iOS devices presents an excellent opportunity for maintaining the separation of private and business data, by preventing business documents being opened in private applications. Previously, if one wanted to edit a document in a managed app, it had to be firstly opened in Cortado Workplace and then, via Open In, in the desired app (e.g. Microsoft Word or Pages). However, the new Cortado feature Document Provider optimizes this process. The user can immediately start the app with which he wishes to edit a document, which is actually stored on the company server. He can select the document directly from the app. This improves productivity and eliminates the need for cumbersome switching of applications.
