LockDown launches its highly anticipated app for Android users

Columbus, Ohio, September 26, 2019 – LockDown, a disruptive company that is pioneering a new standard for data control and digital ownership, today announced that its LockDown app is available for Android users.
 
The app is currently free for individual users and can be downloaded in the Google PlayStore. The enhanced version is also available on a subscription basis for companies in the manufacturing, technology, business and financial services industries—basically any business that needs to share and control communications, internal or external.
 
“LockDown enables complete privacy, powerful security and unprecedented control of digital information,” explains CEO AJ Auld. “Now businesses can collaborate safely – sharing confidential files and private communication – without exposure to security risks posed by employees, partners, suppliers and customers. Even better, it’s incredibly easy to use.”
 
Leading-edge key handling technology works behind the scenes to ensure that only intended recipients may access data and access can be revoked at any time. Since LockDown operates in a secure, password-less environment, data cannot be downloaded or shared with unauthorized parties. There are no passwords to share, phish, steal or mismanage.
 
“LockDown provides you with valuable intel regarding your most sensitive information,” adds CTO Eric Parker. “After you share a file, you’ll have a full audit trail and usage visibility. Messages and documents are secured when at rest, in transit and in use. Once a file is in LockDown, the security persists across networks, storage, endpoints or in the cloud. Also, LockDown operates in zero-knowledge, meaning even we can’t see your data.”
 
“We’re very excited to be launching the Android version of LockDown,” says Annie Cute, business development manager. “The market response already has been extremely positive, and the Android app compliments our iOS (iPhone) and Windows apps.”
