Protect your business data with five BYOD security apps

FileLocker 1

5. FileLocker

FileLocker allows you to encrypt specific files on your mobile device. This app encodes the actual file, making it virtually unreadable, without decoding. Huge files are quickly hashed by encoding only the beginning and the ending of the file. Encrypted files are also hidden from view – making them practically disappear. FileLocker also tracks temporarily unlocked files – in case you've forgotten to re-lock them. If you're looking for an outstanding (and simple) way to protect sensitive company data on a mobile device, look no further than FileLocker.
