Security firm Mycroft has announced a new cloud-based security service for iPhones and iPads.

"The service, dubbed MobileIA, builds on the company's remote access and cloud hosting environments used by the UK government," writes Computer Weekly's Warwick Ashford. "The service enables organisations requiring remote mobile access to IL3 or 'restricted' networks to create a segmented environment where users of iOS devices can host and access sensitive data."

"The service uses FIPS encryption to enable users to access productivity applications," Ashford writes.
